The Method: 

The easiest way to make this recipe is to buy your pork cutlet pre-tenderized. If not, the easiest way to do this at home is to lay the pork cutlet between two pieces of plastic wrap. Use the flat side of the meat mallet to pound the cutlet very thin, about 1/4″ thick.Once the pork is tenderized, pat dry with a kitchen towel and lightly season with salt and pepper on both sides. 

Have your bowls ready, one with the eggs and one with the almond flour mixture. Dip the cutlet in the egg mixture followed by the almond four mixture. Fry immediately! Tip, preheat the pan while you are coating the pork cutlet in the egg and almond flour mixture. 

Serve immediatelywith fresh lemon and fresh parsley.
