Ingredients

  • 4

    veal cutlets, pounded lightly (use pork for Schweineschnitzel)

  • 1

    Tbsp lemon juice

  • ½

    tsp salt

  • ½

    about ½ cup flour

  • 3

    Tbsp water

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    about 1 cup bread crumbs

  • 3

    Tbsp butter

  • 3

    Tbsp peanut or vegetable oil

  • 1

    lemon, sliced

Directions

Trim fat from meat and clip edges to stop edges from curling during cooking. Sprinkle cutlets with lemon juice and salt. Place 3 shallow bowl on counter. In first one, put flour. In second one, mix egg and water. In third one, put breadcrumbs. Coat schnitzel, first with flour, then egg, and then breadcrumbs. Heat butter and oil over medium heat in skillet. Fry cutlets until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately, garnished with lemon slices. Hints: If schnitzel are too big to all fit in the pan, just fry 2 at a time. Once done, put finished schnitzel on a paper towel lined pan and place, uncovered, in the oven to keep warm while frying remaining schnitzel. This German schnitzel is often served garnished with anchovy fillets if desired.
