Rating: (1 rated)
Recipe Yield: Serves 4

For the vinaigrette:
1/4 cup wheat beer
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup olive oil

For the salad:
2 small heads frisée, trimmed and torn into pieces
1 medium romaine lettuce heart
1 medium red pear, cored and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese

For the schnitzel:
4 boneless pork loin chops (about 6 ounces each)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups fine, dry breadcrumbs
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil

Make the vinaigrette: Whisk the beer, vinegar, honey, mustard, and salt together in a medium bowl until well-combined. While whisking, stream in the olive oil to create a thick emulsion. Once all of the olive oil is added, whisk for another minute to thicken; set aside.

Make the salad: Cut the romaine into bite-sized pieces. Mix together the frisée, romaine, and pear in a large bowl; set aside.

Make the schnitzel: Working with 1 or 2 pieces at a time, place the pork between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, then pound with the flat side of a meat mallet or bottom of a heavy saucepan until about 1/4-inch thick. Season the pork on both sides with the salt and pepper.

Place the flour and breadcrumbs onto 2 separate large plates. Whisk together the eggs in a wide, shallow bowl until lightly beaten. Working with one at a time, lightly coat each piece of pork with flour, shaking off any excess. Dip in the egg, then into the breadcrumbs, pressing so each piece is fully coated. Place on a baking sheet or large plate.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Working in batches if necessary, as to not crowd the pan, add the pork. Fry until the pork is cooked through and golden-brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the schnitzel to a cutting board. Cut into 1-inch-wide slices.

Pour the vinaigrette over the salad greens and toss to combine. Divide the greens between plates, then top with the sliced schnitzel and blue cheese. Serve immediately.
