This is also very very good with pork medallions. Thats the way my family has always done it. Great recipe!

I never thought of adding lemon juice to my schnitzel recipes, but I tried this and it was really good. The only change I made to the recipe was to add lots of Hungarian paprika to the breadcrumbs.

My Grandmother used to make schnitzel with pork or veal. But she dredged it in flour before dipping the meat in the egg and breadcrumbs. When schnitzel is cooked you should be able to insert a knife between the veal and breading.

This was quite tasty; however, I would recommend adding some salt to the breadcrumbs or salt and pepper the cutlets prior to breading them.

I would've given this a 5 rating, but you just HAVE to dip it in flour first, then egg, then crumbs. The pre-flouring ensures that your delicious crumb coating stays perfectly intact on your fried foods (any of them). So, I did that, and followed rest of your recipe to a TEE. Now MY husbands wants this more than I can stand!

Yeah, this is a tasty recipe. The last time I made, my hubby said "Hoh yeah, cool!" In an excited way... It's really good, filling, especially with potatoes and a green veggie. Comfort food for all of us, German or otherwise.

My cooking skills are probably not good enough to make schnitzel since the only place I can actually cook is a cooking games website, but I'll give it a try anyway, my mom used to make schnitzel for me when I was a kid. Been years since then :(

This was delicious! I had pork cutlets on hand so used them. It turned out thin & tender enough I didn't need a knife. The lemon was a very nice surprise.

This was really good! I used chicken breast and gluten free panko bread crumbs. Very yummy!
