Low carb — an international way of eating

Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Wiener Schnitzel (IF)

I get requests by many of my viewers, but I especially enjoy the recipe requests from my international viewers.  My last one that I made for an international viewer was my low carb Swedish Meatballs recipe video.  This recipe came from a viewer of mine in Austria, and she requested me make a video on a family favorite, wiener schnitzel.  I asked her if she wanted me to make the original made with veal or more common with pork.  She chose pork, and that was the origins of this video.

I was in Germany in ’93 or ’94 and had some wiener schnitzel while I was there.  I liked it then, and the challenge was to replace the breadcrumbs in the original high carb recipe to a low carb alternative.  I really liked this recipe, and the breading works as well for chicken and beef as it did for pork.

    I put seasonings in the cream bath (had trouble getting the parmesan to stick) and used a dash of onion salt, garlic pepper and smoked paprika as well as some dried thyme.) I had to crush the pork rinds (or pork scratchings here in the UK). I forgot to put the coated pork in the fridge, but fried them immediately in an ordinary pan (rather than deep fat frier). I’ve never been a huge fan of winer schnitzel, but this was DELICIOUS. I think this is one of your best recipes Kent. Many thanks.

      Always nice to hear that I hit one out of the park from one of my viewers. I am really glad you liked it.

    Hello, I don’t eat either red meat or chicken. I do it fish, could I do the Atkins diet? I await your prompt response. Thank you

      There are many vegetarians that do Atkins, so if you are able to eat fish, you certainly should have no problems doing it. Just remember the focus of the diet is not high protein, but high fat so be sure to include additional oils in cooking if dealing with leaner cuts.

    Hello!
    What is the brand name of your pork rinds? Did you used natural, or seasoned pork rinds?

    • admin

      I used seasoned (just salt) pork rinds. and I believe the brand name was either Mission or Turkey Creek. Other seasonings will also work like the spicy or picante flavor, and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference in the finished product between the options.
