    1. Place each slice of pork fillet between two pieces of sturdy plastic sheets (such as a cut-up large plastic freezer bag) and flatten until about 5mm thick, and about 9x13cm in size.
    2. Beat the eggs, milk, garlic granules, onion powder, seasoned salt, marjoram, oregano, salt and pepper together in a shallow bowl. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl.
    3. Dip each piece of pork into the seasoned milk-egg mixture and then into the breadcrumbs. Set the breaded pork aside on a piece of baking parchment or greaseproof paper; do not stack.
    4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan until the oil is shimmering. Gently lower the pork, one piece at a time, into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes per piece. Drain the pork escalope on kitchen towels.
    5. Preheat grill and set the oven rack about 15cm from the heat source.
    6. Spread the sub rolls open with the cut sides up and grill until the rolls are toasted and hot, about 1 minute. Top each roll with a pork escalope; top each sandwich with choice of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion and a pickle slice, if desired.

    Growing up in the midwest, these were available in every restaurant. Now I live in the south and you never see them. My husband and I have enjoyed these numerous times now and everytime it reminds me of my grandmother frying these up in her Iowa kitchen. Thanks for the recipe!!  -  15 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was my first attempt at frying anything (kind of try to keep things healthy) and I didn't know my oil was too hot so I kind of burned the outside of the first two, but after that I just browned them in the oil and finished cooking in the oven and the Hubby RAVED! Few tiny changes for health reasons: used egg beaters rather than egg, made whole grain bread crumbs, and dipped in whole wheat flour before egg/milk mix. I WILL be making these again!  -  10 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love these, they are the BEST. I used panko bread crumbs - nothing better.  -  06 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
