How to make this recipe
In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs with the sour cream. In another shallow bowl, whisk the flour, ginger, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and paprika. Spread the panko in a third shallow bowl.
Season the pork with salt and pepper. Dredge the cutlets in the flour mixture, dip them in the egg mixture and coat with panko; transfer to a baking sheet.
In a very large skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil. Add half of the cutlets and fry over moderately high heat, turning once, until just cooked through, 4 minutes total; transfer to paper towels. Repeat with the remaining cutlets.
In a bowl, toss the plums, radicchio, parsley, lemon juice and mustard with the 3 tablespoons of oil. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with the cheese. Serve the pork schnitzel with the salad.
The recipe can be prepared through Step 2 up to 3 hours in advance.
Balance bitter radicchio with a fruity red that has soft tannins, like Valpolicella from Italy's Veneto region.
