"It may be the butt of jokes, but despite the funny name, Wienerschnitzel is seriously good food. If you have a moral objection to veal, use turkey, or even pork, but whatever you do, don't omit the nutmeg or lemon."

    Followed the recipe to a tee and the only suggestion I would make is to let the cutlets sit in a buttermilk bath prior to dipping in the egg mixture. The buttermilk bath will tenderize the meat and add a nice zip that will also help the flour stick to the cutlets.

    Had this for dinner and it great! I used veg. oil and a splash of olive oil. I'll be picking up more veal to make and freeze these cutlets for a couple of easy dinners. Thanks for posting!

    This was super easy and super simple. The nutmeg and lemon added a nice, authentic flavor. Made for ZWT6.

    Sometimes simplicity is best. This is a fine example. Simply delicious. I especially loved the hint of nutmeg and lemon!! I used less olive oil, about 1/2 cup, and it worked just fine! Danke for posting. ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~

    This recipe was wonderful....I have never made Wienerschnitzel before. I had friends over to rate this and it got a 5! Made for Spring PAC 2010.


I work in the lab of a large county hospital. Cooking, particularly exotic ethnic cuisines and fancy desserts is my therapy and stress relief. Being a geeky kind of person, I'm really into the science of food. I'm getting into playing cooking games and contests on 'Zaar. Why not come play with us? It's lots of fun. <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
