Jagerschnitzel, or Hunter's Schnitzel, is as close to German comfort food as it gets. Pork cutlets served with a rich, creamy mushroom gravy, this recipe is as delicious as it is simple!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Season pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Dredge pork chops in flour, fry until golden brown.
  4. Remove pork chops, keep warm.
  5. After pork chops are done, reduce heat to medium and scrape bottom of the pan to get the good bits up.
  6. Add bacon to the pan, cook for 3-4 minutes.
  7. Add onion to pan, cook until translucent.
  8. Add mushrooms (including water), cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  9. Dissolve bullion cube in water, then add to pan.
  10. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring often. Mixture should reduce by half.
  11. Combine cornstarch and sour cream, add to pan and mix well.
  12. Heat gravy until warm, but do not boil.
  13. Spoon gravy over pork chops, serve immediately.

Excellent! I just added more bacon and I used Italian bread crumbs instead of flour. I'm adding this to my "make all the time" book

I only did the gravey part and served it with my cubed pork that my husband likes. He wasn't sure when I told him about it, but after having one of the cutlets with it decided this is his new favorite way to have them!

I let it reduce a little to much so it was very thick. Will add a couple of more slices of bacon next time. May use beef broth/stock next time instead of bouillon next time.
