Crumbed pork cutlets with Mum's potato salad


  • Preheat oven to 180°-200°C fan forced (200°-220°C normal).
  • Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water until tender. Drain well.
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently cook the bacon until crispy.
  • Then gently toss the bacon with the potatoes and any cooking oil. Set aside. 
  • Place seasoned flour in one bowl, egg mixed with milk in another, and the breadcrumbs in a third bowl.
  • Then flour, dip in egg wash and crumb the pork cutlets. Refrigerate for up to 15 mins. 
  • When ready, heat a layer of oil in a heavy-bottomed pan (that can go into the oven) and seal the pork on one side.
  • Then turn the pork over and cook in the oven for about 8 mins until fairly firm when pressed. 
  • Combine the mayonnaise and sour cream with a squeeze of lemon juice and the mustard. Taste for seasoning. 
  • Toss the potatoes with the dressing to taste and the spring onions.
  • Serve the cutlets with a good mound of potato salad and lemon wedges on the side.
  • nb. Potato salad should be served at room temperature - not straight out of the fridge.
