I was expecting the Jagerschnitzel I get here in Baveria and this gravy was far from the mushroom gravy I get on my jagerschnitzel. The sauce does not thicken and the wine taste is not appetizing (I thought it would have cooked all the way off) and I even cooked it a little longer to try and get it to cook off. I put to much pepper in the sauce, but that still would not have made me want to cook this again.
