Our favorite version of this classic recipe uses lemon butter breaded pork cutlets and egg noodles for deep, rich flavor. Once the dish is fully cooked, add freshly steamed broccoli and top with lemon wedges and chopped parsley for a touch of brightness. Scroll down for the full recipe.
Prepare the noodles according to package directions. Once noodles are finished cooking, drain and toss with butter.
While noodles are cooking, heat the oil over medium heat in a cast-iron skillet or sauté pan until hot, 2-3 minutes. Carefully add the cutlets to the skillet in a single layer and pan-fry for 3-5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through (until the internal temperature is 145°F for pork and 165°F for chicken). Cook in several batches if necessary, making sure not to crowd the pan and adding more vegetable oil as needed. Remove the cutlets to a paper towel-lined plate.
While cutlets are cooking, microwave the broccoli for 3-4 minutes until tender. Let the bag sit in the microwave for 1 minute before removing. Caution: Steamer bag will be hot and may release steam when opened.
To serve: Divide noodles, broccoli and cutlets onto 4 plates. Serve with lemon wedges* and chopped parsley* if desired.
