SW recipe: Pork schnitzel with red cabbage

Serves 1
Ready in about 35 minutes
Syns per serving: 3


25g wholemeal breadcrumbs (made by whizzing 1-2 slices day-old wholemeal bread from a small 400g loaf in a food processor)

¼ tsp grated zest from an unwaxed lemon

½ tsp dried thyme

1 egg

1 thin-cut lean pork loin steak, visible fat removed

½ tsp all-purpose seasoning

Low-calorie cooking spray

½ cucumber, to serve

Lemon wedge, to serve
For the red cabbage:

125g red cabbage, finely shredded

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

3 tbsp white wine vinegar

5 tbsp hot vegetable stock

1 level tsp redcurrant jelly


1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Mix together the breadcrumbs, lemon zest and thyme on a plate. Lightly beat the egg in a bowl.

2 Wrap the pork steak in a piece of cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten slightly. Discard the cling film. Sprinkle the all-purpose seasoning over the pork and dip both sides first in the beaten egg and then in the breadcrumb mixture. Spray a non-stick baking tray with low-calorie cooking spray and place the pork on top. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

3 Meanwhile, spray a lidded, non-stick wok or large frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the cabbage and onion, and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes, or until they start to soften. Pour over the vinegar and stock. Cover and simmer over the lowest possible heat for 10 minutes. Stir in the redcurrant jelly and season to taste. Peel the cucumber into ribbons with a veg peeler.

4 Slice the schnitzel and serve on top of the cabbage with seasoned cucumber ribbons and a wedge of lemon.

Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).

Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
