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!

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


  • 4 5 oz thin sliced lean pork sirloin cutlets
  • seasoned salt (such as adobo)
  • 2 large egg whites (beaten)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sazon (homemade or packaged)
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (or gluten-free crumbs)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • lime wedges for serving


  • Season cutlets with 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt.
  • Place bread crumbs in a medium shallow bowl.
  • In another bowl beat egg whites with sazon.
  • Dip pork cutlets in egg whites, then breadcrumb mixture, shaking off excess.
  • Heat a large nonstick frying pan on medium to medium heat. Add the olive oil and pork cutlets, cook about 6 minutes on each side, until golden brown and no longer pink in the center.
  • Serve with lime wedges.
