Fast and easy - your Schnitzel recipe
Everyone loves a perfectly breaded, perfectly fried, and perfectly crispy Schnitzel!
Schnitzel is a traditional German dish where meat is pounded into thin, tender cutlets, breaded, and pan-fried to perfection. The breading creates a crispy crust around the meat, which locks in all of the flavours and juices, resulting in a belly-warming, comforting meal.
With the tips that follow, you'll be able to make the perfect German Schnitzel, right at home!
I suppose you all know „Schnitzel”. Yes, it’s one of the best and most popular dishes from Germany and Austria!
Have a look at our Schnitzel recipe by Minako, both German employees at Whole Meat loved it! No need for any sauces, just squeeze some lemon juice over it (or ketchup, German kids always use ketchup for Schnitzel 😊).
Tip: If you want to have the "Cordon bleu" version, just put some cheese between two pork slices
- Pork Portion cuts
- Salt and pepper
- Grated cheese
- wheat flour
- egg wash
- olive oil
1) Tap and flatten the pork (wrap it into cling film and use a tenderizer)
2) Use very finely ground breadcrumbs and mix it with some grated cheese
3) season the meat with salt and pepper and put it into flour --> egg wash --> breadcrumb mix
4) Put 3 tbsp of oil and 3 tbsp of butter into the frying pan and carefully fry the meat on both sides
The main difference between Japanese Tonkatsu and German Schnitzel is the thin meat and the fine breadcrumbs. To have a more intensive taste, use oil and butter for frying. You only need some lemon juice for the best Schnitzel!
