This is such a tasty, but easy, way to prepare veal. A long-standing favourite, and lovely in summer with braised red cabbage, potato salad, and a tossed green salad. Preparation time does not include marinading or setting breadcrumbs in fridge.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl, add veal and ensure it is completely covered by the mixture, and leave to marinate overnight, or for at least 1 hour.
  2. Remove meat from marinade, dip in seasoned flour, then in beaten egg, and finally in breadcrumbs, pressing on firmly.
  3. Place on a rack, and allow to set in fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat butter and oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and saute until veal is golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes each side.
  5. Remove to serving platter and garnish with slices of egg and caviar if desired.
  6. Tip: if you add a few drops of oil to the beaten egg, it helps the breadcrumbs to adhere to the meat.

I didn't prepare it, but a friend did, and directed me here. Honestly, the marinade killed it; I have to agree with Kiwipom. Total waste of good veal. Sorry, but this is not wiener schnitzel. Wiener schnitzel is veal, tenderized with a mallet, seasoned with salt and pepper, breaded, and fried in a generous amount of fat or oil. I don't mean to be an ass, but that's the way it is.

Lost the flavour of the meat with this one. DD just tried it and then refused to eat it again.

Wonderful wiener schnitzel! great flavour from the marinade! We loved the falvour left from the marinade so much I think I will try it on other things. The veal was lovely and tender and cooked very quickly! Don't cook veal very often, too expensive around here. I did have one little problem, when I went to turn it over I lost some of the coat, it didn't stick too well to the veal, so I kinda stuck it back on, didn't affect the taste but didn't look as good as it should have, after haveing left it in the fridge for about an hour. I think I will try it with chicken, it will be very good I'm sure. The veal was great for a special occasion, Thanksgiving for 3. but no caviar, also very expensive ha ha!! I will be making this one again, thanks for posting!
