    Marlitt's Note:

    This is a pork schnitzel with a spicy tomato sauce with mushrooms. I have tried this using chicken as well and I really can't decide which I like better. We really enjoy these. Something my Grandmother used to make for us when we went to visit.

      Wow, this was a lot of food for 4. I say it could easily serve 6. I served it with mashed potatoes. I loved all the spicy veggies in the sauce. I wasn't wild about the red wine flavor mixed with the chile paste, however, and think I'll just add extra broth instead of the wine next time. Thanks for sharing Marlitt. Made for ZWT4.

      I had dinner at a truely authentic German restaurant while I was out of town and couldn't get that meal our of my head. I finally decided I would look up a recipe and try to make it myself. Although this is not the exact dish it's very close with all the peppers. I've made this a couple times now and it has been a hit! I served it with home spaetzle and sauerkraut. It was super tasty! I also didn't have chili paste so I used chili powder, and it turned out well! I do want to try it with chili paste next time. Like everyone else though, I had close to double the sauce I really needed. This serves 6 or cut the sauce in half and freeze the other half. Definitely going to be a regular meal in our home!
