"Back in the mid-90s, we lived in Hamburg, Germany for well over a year. We had the time of our lives, and certainly enjoyed a lot of Schnitzel." -Kris & Wesley
Schnitzel originated in Austria and authentic Weiner Schnitzel (from Vienna) is made with veal. But, we LOVE it also with pork.
After seasoning the chop, it goes through a simple dredging process of first in flour, then a quick egg batch, and then into the lightly seasoned bread crumbs.
There is just something so tempting and satisfying about a perfectly cooked chop. Thin and crispy on the outsides and flavorful on the inside.
This is a classic German mushroom sauce called a Jaeger sauce, which means “Hunter Sauce.”
Pork Schnitzel with Mushroom Gravy is so comforting. It’s elegant enough for a nice dinner party, but easiest to whip up for a delicious weeknight family dinner.
