Schnitzel Munich Style

Dave T.


In German-speaking countries, the term Schnitzel means cutlets, not just breaded fried ones. It can be pork, chicken, beef, veal or any meat in general, pounded out thin.
Munich style schnitzel is a variation on the Wiener Schnitzel prepared with horseradish and/or mustard before coating in flour, egg and bread crumbs. It can be served with mashed, fried or wedged potatoes and a green salad or vegetable. I do hope you will try and enjoy this as much as I did while I was in Germany in the late 70's
