Hey guys and welcome back to Discovering the Dish! This week I am making Schnitzel inspired by the country Germany. The recipe I used has been passed down from my grandma who is German. I personally have not been to Germany, but my dad, brother and sister have before and said it was really cool.
To start, I used pork and I beat it until it was thinner. I beat it on both sides and then salt and peppered only one side. I then put the meat into a bowl with flour and covered it all. I then put it into an egg and milk mixture which was two eggs and ⅛ of a cup milk. Then when it completely covered in that, I put it into a bowl with bread crumbs.
I completely covered it in the mixture and then was ready to fry them. I put a skillet on medium heat with a dash of oil and then placed the meat into it. I cooked on them both sides until they were a golden brown. Once done, I served the Schnitzel with a brown gravy sauce that was delicious.
I’ve made this recipe before with my whole family to help though. My siblings and I each got a station. My mom would pound the meat, I would then do the flour, my sister would do the egg and milk mixture. Then my brother did the bread crumbs. Lastly, my dad fried it up. It was different doing it all myself than with my family helping out.
Some difficulties I had making the schnitzel was most of the recipe isn’t an actually exact measurement since I was just following what has been told to me through my grandma. I was worried I wasn’t doing it right. Also, the frying was difficult because I was nervous about over cooking it and the oil kept spattering on me, so I was trying not to get burned. The easiest part was the dipping the meat into different mixtures. I find it fun covering them each with bread crumbs and such. Overall, the schnitzel came out really well and I am curious to see if this is what authentic schnitzels taste like.
