Wienerschnitzel




German food is one of my favorites, and this weinerschnitzel is easy, and fast enough to make on a weeknight. Pound some veal cutlets. Salt and pepper them.



Dredge them in flour.



Give them a quick bath in an egg and milk mixture.



Pop them in some breadcrumbs.



Fry them over medium heat in 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil for a couple of minutes on each side. Wait until the pan gets hot to start!



It is best not to overcrowd the pan, so I did two at a time, drained them on paper towels, and popped them in the oven (preheated to 200 degrees) just to keep them warm. I served them with artichokes and leftover pasta, but you can really use any side dish you like. If this had been a weekend, I would have made sauerkraut and maybe some spatzle- you might be able to find spatzle in the international foods section of your grocery store. I was looking for a quick fix, and this was the perfect opportunity to use my new artichoke serve ware. Another spur-of-the-moment, yet delicious, dinner saved the day...and the eggs.

Okay..so sometimes the lines between "I" and "we" get a little blurred. It was delicious in any case :)

I had to learn to spell some fancy words before becoming one of Richmond's Top 40! The issue is coming out tomorrow. I just love finding ways to slip that into casual conversation.

It's been years since I've had proper Shnitzel. Although if I were to make it these days I would probably choose to make them from a different meat because of the ethics concerned in veal production.

I suspected the veal issue might come up. I (obviously)have no problem with the ethics concerned in veal production. I do respect people who have that concern. Thank you for your comment.
