Oma's easy German Schnitzel recipe is a perfect addition to your German recipe collection. Schnitzel are really just thin cutlets and can be made from veal, pork, chicken, turkey ... just about any kind of meat. Pounded thin with a meat hammer to tenderize, then breaded, and fried. It doesn't get much easier than that. How to make schnitzel really isn't rocket science! 

One of the most popular traditional recipes is for Jäger-Schnitzel (Hunter's Schnitzel). This is served with a most wonderful mushroom sauce. You'll find the recipe for that below. For the schnitzel, it's normally a breaded one, but sometimes its served with un-breaded meat.

Oma's German Schnitzel Recipe❤️

Ingredients:

  • 4 veal cutlets, pounded lightly (use pork for Schweineschnitzel)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • about ½ cup flour
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 egg
  • about 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1 lemon, sliced

Instructions:

  • Trim fat from meat and clip edges to stop edges from curling during cooking.
  • Sprinkle cutlets with lemon juice and salt.
  • Place 3 shallow bowl on counter. In first one, put flour. In second one, mix egg and water. In third one, put breadcrumbs.
  • Coat schnitzel, first with flour, then egg, and then breadcrumbs.
  • Heat butter and oil over medium heat in skillet.
  • Fry cutlets until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with lemon slices.

Hints:

  • If schnitzel are too big to all fit in the pan, just fry 2 at a time. Once done, put finished schnitzel on a paper towel lined pan and place, uncovered, in the oven to keep warm while frying remaining schnitzel.
  • This German schnitzel is often served garnished with anchovy fillets if desired.

Oma's Jägerschnitzel Sauce

  • Add tomato paste, water, and white wine.
  • Add paprika. Season with thyme, salt and pepper.

Schnitzel History

The original Wiener Schnitzel is thought to come from Vienna, Austria in the 1600's.This has to be made from veal and is controlled by law. If it's not made with veal, it must be labelled as coming from pork or chicken, etc.

Me? I love the pork schnitzel!

Oma says,

Don't have any schnitzel at your butcher's? Is there an alternative?

Absolutely! I take some nice thick boneless pork chops and butterflying them. Then I gently pound them to an even thinness. Especially when these are on sale, Hubby and I will make an assembly line. Cut. Pound. Package. Freeze. Perfect when I need a quick meal. Since they're so thin, they thaw real quick.

Wunderbar!
