Wienerschnitzel“Many people think Wienerschnitzel is a German dish, but it originated in Austria. “Wiener” is Viennese  for Vienna, Austria.  Typically it is served with a slice of lemon, sautéed apples, potatoes of some kind, like buttered potatoes with parsley or warm or cold potato salad and a vegetable. This is my own Wienerschnitzel version. “Das ist lecker!”  Enjoy!”

Servings:  4


1/2 pound veal cutlets
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
2 eggs
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup plain bread crumbs
6 tablespoons butter
4 slices lemons
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups mushrooms
2 onions, sliced in rings
2 tablespoons red wine
4 tablespoons sour cream



For the Wienerschnitzel:

1. In medium bowl, mix together the flour, grated cheese, eggs, parsley salt, pepper, nutmeg, and milk.
2. Place bread crumbs in another bowl.
3. Dip each cutlet into the egg mixture, then the bread crumbs. Press the bread crumbs into the cutlet to coat.
4. “Double-dip” (repeat the dipping if you have more left).
5. Refrigerate the cutlets for at least one hour or overnight.
6. Melt the 6 tablespoons of  butter in large skillet over medium heat.
7. Cook the breaded cutlets until browned on each side, about 3 minutes on each side.
8. Remove to a warm serving platter. (Or keep in 200° oven while you make the gravy.)

For the Gravy:

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the mushrooms and onions in the 4 tablespoons of butter until soft.
2. Stir in the wine and sour cream and saute for a few more minutes.
3. Pour over the warmed cutlets.
4. Serve with lemon slices if you wish.
