I used to make this a lot in Germany. It is a family favorite, the meat is very tender. It goes with just about anything..Very good with cabbage, potatoes, potato salad, carrot salad or just glazed carrots, salad is good too... tenderness and breading is awesome, beautiful color to boot. Makes Awesome sandwiches... it's fantastic with Jäger sauce on it too!!
