If you’re a stickler for the classics, then you have to go with this wiener schnitzel recipe. It’s where everything started, so it’s no surprise that it’s so many people’s first choice!
- 2 pounds of veal
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 cups of bread crumbs
- ⅛ cup of oil for frying
You’ll need to start by cutting the veal into steaks around the same thickness as your finger. You’ll already have the eggs, oil, salt, and pepper perfectly mixed in a bowl. After dredging the meat in flour, use bread crumbs to coat it. Fry in the pan until golden; easy and done!
If you want your schnitzel to contain a bit more sauce, the butter recipe is the one for you!
- 12 boneless pork loin chops
- 2 cups of breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon of dried parsley flakes
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- ½ teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
- ½ pound of butter
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 pound of mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons of water
- Olive oil as needed
Set the pork chops aside after pounding them into thinner slices. Combine your parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper, and press the chops thoroughly into it. Make sure to stir in your garlic after you’ve thoroughly melted the butter. Add in your mushrooms and allow them to cook. After that, add cornstarch and water and cook everything together. Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil and fry your breaded slices until golden. Serve them with the thick, buttery mushroom sauce!
If you’re more a fan of chicken instead of pork, then this schnitzel recipe is the one for you. You’ll find that the chicken works just as well and is just as tasty.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as desired
- 6 chicken, cut in half lengthwise
- Salt and ground black pepper to taste
- ¾ cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon of ground paprika
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups of seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 large lemon, zested
First, sprinkle olive oil on your baking sheet and place it in a preheated oven. Use a mallet for the chicken pieces until they’re about the thickness of a finger, season them, and leave them aside. Use one bowl to mix the flour and paprika. In another bowl, combine the eggs, salt and pepper. In a third and final bowl, mix the bread crumbs with lemon zest. Drench your pieces of chicken in all three mixtures, finishing with the bread crumbs. Place them evenly on your baking sheet and throw them in the oven. Make sure you’ve baken them until both sides are golden brown, and enjoy!
