I cut the recipe in half as it is only DH and myself. I used vermouth instead of opening a new bottle of wine just for this. We really enjoyed this meal and will look forward to using this recipe again. Kudos on a great find!!
Realy like the flavour the lemon lent to the dish. Thought it was on the salty side with all the capers, next time I'll only add 1 tbsp.
I have eaten this many times when I lived in Germany and it was one of my favourite dishes, so this was a treat for us! I followed the recipe exactly and even used German Riesling for my wine! I served this with your recipe for Spaetzle in Sage Brown Butter, the lettuce leaves and the pickled beetroot (beets) for a fabulous Sunday lunch! As there was only two of us, I cut the recipe down to half. A trip down memory lane, thanks Reets darlink! Made for the Whine and Cheese Gang and the German leg of ZWT#6. Merci encore. FT:-) PS: I used veal cutlet chops, bone in, not sure what cutlets mean in the US, but cutlets in Europe are usually bone it!
