  • Step 1

    Place flour in a shallow bowl or plate. Add eggs, water, and Dijon mustard to another bowl; whisk to combine. In a third bowl, stir together bread crumbs, caraway seed and salt.

  • Step 2

    Working one at a time, coat each pork cutlet in flour. Tap off excess, then coat cutlet in egg mixture. Transfer cutlet to bread crumb mixture, tossing well to evenly coat. Set aside and repeat with remaining cutlets.

  • Step 3

    Insert crisper plate in pan and pan in unit. Preheat unit by selecting AIR FRY, setting temperature to 190°C and setting time to 3 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

  • Step 4

    Once unit is preheated, add 2 breaded cutlets to the crisper plate. Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 190°C and set time to 42 minutes.

  • Step 5

    After 7 minutes, remove pan from unit and flip cutlets. Reinsert pan to resume cooking for 7 more minutes.

  • Step 6

    Repeat steps 4 and 5 with remaining cutlets.

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, pork is ready to serve.

    TIP: For an extra golden-brown crust, spray each cutlet with olive oil spray just before cooking
