Geschnetzeltes (Pork and Mushrooms)

Cyndi Holman


I first had this at a hotel in Interlaken, Switzerland. You can buy the mix for it at a German grocery store, but this is an easy way to make it from scratch. It's best served over rösti, a hash brown pancake, but can also be good over rice or noodles.
