Breaded Pork Cutlets with Lime

Breaded Pork Cutlets with Lime is one of my family’s favorite dishes! I make this monthly, because they request it!

Pork sirloin cutlets are a lean cut, and taste wonderful breaded and lightly pan fried. My family loves when I make them, and often request that I make them for dinner. A little different than chicken cutlets, these have more of a Latin flair, which we serve with fresh lime juice on top – yum!

It’s very similar to my turkey cutlet recipe, but with more Latin flavors. I season the pork with dry adobo seasoning (salt and garlic powder would be fine too) and I season the egg wash with my homemade sazon for flavor.
