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.

  1. Made this tonight with the Puerto Rican beans and I was so impressed! It's easy, with simple ingredients but the flavor is so complex. My fiance immediately requested that I add this meal to our rotation!

  2. LOVED this!!! Made it with the Puerto Rican beans and brown rice… So much flavor. Sazon might become my new favorite spice blend.

  3. This dish was absolutely incredible. My husband and I both just loved it. We served it up with some roasted butternut squashed seasoned with Mexican seasonings (actually, the base for the Breakfast Burrito Bowl with Spiced Butternut Squash dish) and a little Mexican side salad… such a great meal! Thanks again, Gina!

  4. I made this tonight with the bean side dish pictured and my husband and I both loved it. Was each cutlet supposed to be 5oz or was that the total weight for the meat? Thank you!

  5. Could you use thin slicked pork chops?

  6. i think there may be an error in the SP calculation. I used my calculator and based on the info in you recipe, it is only 4 points per cutlet. 🙂

    • Did anyone ever figure this out? I would love to make these, but I want to make sure I’m calculating the points correctly. I, too, got 4sp based on the info in your recipe.

  7. I made this last night with the Puerto rican style beans and it was amazing. I had to stop myself from eating the 2 left over cutlets because it was my favorite thing ever. I love lime and I put a ton my porkchop. the beans were delicious as well, but nothing will ever compare to this porkchop

  8. I thought this was going to be terrible since I made it. However, your directions really made it easy to make, and it couldn't have turned out better!

  9. I've never seen this cut of pork at my market before. Where did you buy yours?

    • They sell pork sirloin cutlets in my local supermarket. Any cutlet would work if you can't find them.

    • I took a pork loin and sliced it into chops. Tasted great, easy recipe. My Cuban father in law raved about this dish when I made it. 

  10. That looks wonderful. I made pork cutlets last night but they didn't have all these lovely spices… Have to try it this way!

  11. This looks great. I have an egg allergy. Can you suggest an alternative?

  12. These look great! I made your homemade sazon for the crock pot pork so I know it will go well in this dish plus I have a bunch leftover. It has a nice Latin flavor without the heat.

  13. Okay, these are gonna be dinner tonight!!! I have all the ingredients on hand for once, woo hoo!

  14. Just FYI, the recipe doesn't say to add the Sazon to the bread crumbs…but your intro does. Thanks for this. It IS coming to my kitchen soon!!!

  15. We live in Ireland and the pork is outstanding. Instead of frying, we bake the cutlets and use grated garlic instead of powdered, cuts out all the extra salt. Wonderful dinner

    • KillarneyChef, do you bread it as in Gina's recipe? Would love to have your instructions–oven temp, breading or not, etc.

  16. I don't make pork in my house- do you think I can do this with chicken cutlets?

  17. These look delicious but I have no idea what sazon is. Could you please provide a recipe for your homemade? I love your recipes…thank you!

    • Oh dear. I don't know why it posted as "unknown". On my side it showed my photo and name.

    • Sazon can usually be found in the spice section of the market or the ethnic food section. Knorr and Goya make it.

    • Sorry! The link is now in the directions!

  18. This looks so good!! Thx for sharing!

  19. Looks delicious will be a must try. But definitely curious as those beans and rice look amazing. Would love to know what recipe that is!!! Thanks!

  20. Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers
    Made them last night. A first for me not having meat as the burger patty. Have to say I really liked the taste and texture. I would say this would also be a great substitute for a Lenten meal. I stumbled across your site on fb and I have made a number of dishes from the skinnytaste.com – ALL have been winners in my book! Thank you and continue the great work.
