Schnitzel with an­chovies, horse­rad­ish and ca­pers

SERVES 4

50g plain flour

Sea salt and black pep­per 2 medium eggs

100g bread­crumbs

4 x 150g pork loin steaks 400g Brus­sels sprouts

65g salted but­ter

4tbsp ca­pers

4 canned an­chovy fil­lets,

chopped

4tbsp finely grated horse­rad­ish (fresh is best if you can find it) Hand­ful of dill sprigs 2 lemons, cut in half

1 Mix the flour with a pinch of salt and pep­per on a plate. In a dif­fer­ent con­tainer, lightly beat the eggs, and, on an­other plate, spread out the bread­crumbs.

Roll the pork in the sea­soned flour, mak­ing sure it’s thor­oughly coated, then dip each piece into the egg un­til coated. Drain off the ex­cess egg and turn the pork loin steaks in the crumbs un­til com­pletely coated on all sides.

2 Trim the sprouts and cut them into quar­ters. Heat 20g of the but­ter in a fry­ing pan and sauté the sprouts for 5min, adding a few spoon­fuls of wa­ter if they start to stick to the pan. Re­move from the heat and keep warm.

3 Mean­while, melt 30g more of the but­ter in a large fry­ing pan un­til bub­bling briskly. Fry the coated steaks for 2-3min on each side un­til golden and crisp. Place them on a plate.

4 Wipe the pan and heat the re­main­ing but­ter un­til golden, then fry the ca­pers and chopped an­chovies over a high heat for a few min­utes. Serve each schnitzel with a sprin­kling of the horse­rad­ish and dill on top, as well as the fried ca­pers, an­chovies and melted but­ter. Ac­com­pany with the le­mon halves and sautéed sprouts.
