How nice to have a recipe for one of my favorite German restaurant dishes. This was really delicious! I used pork schnitzels as that is what is available here in Germany. I used single cream and found it just the right amount. The colorful combination of the peppers and the mushrooms is very attractive on top of each portion and the meat came out very tender.

My husband and I ate a wonderful German restaurant in Fredricksburg, Texas and I've been trying to find a recipe that closely matched the schnitzel we ate there. This was so close. My husband loved it and ate about 4 servings by himself. I used thin sliced pork cutlets instead of veal and needed an additional egg to coat the pork. I also used portabella mushrooms. Great recipe!

I used beef schnitzel, needed to use 2 beaten eggs to cover the 6 pieces of meat. And when I was at step 9 I added a 1/2 cup of milk as well as the cream, (it was too thick with just the 1/2 cup cream) But the flavours were great, and will definitely make it again.
