I live like 2 hours drive from Vienna, and we like to to traditional Wiener Schnitzel, which is traditionally made of veal and lard to fry it. Tho, you can also use pork, chicken (my favourite) or turkey and oil to fry it. It will taste just as delicious either way. The escalopes will need to be pounded until the meat is around a 1/4 of an inch thick. Make sure to trim the edges of the meat carefully. Lightly season the escalopes with salt and pepper. You will need three shallow bowls - one for eggs (add a splash of milk as well), one for flour and one for breadcrubs. Be careful to enaure that the entire escalope is completely covered with the breadcrumbs. Place the escalopes in a hot frying pan, the oil in the pan should be deep enough that the schnitzel's float whilst cooking. Cooking time should not be more than 4 minutes for each side. If you want to serve it Viennese style, serve it hot with fresh lemon wedge (to squeeze) and potato salad on the side. Now, I want to know how do you vingler foodies out there prepere your Weiner Schnitzel? What kind of meat do you use? How long do you fry it and in what? Tell me everything! Of course, everyone is invited to comment, but I just have to know your opinions: @alywoah @allischaaff @marshalledgar @MooshieBay @alise @nicolejb @FabiolaGavina @danidee @onesmile @jordanhamilton @LizArnone

LOVE this food so much! I lived in Germany (pretty sure you know this) for a time and honestly it’s the one food I miss the most since I’ve been back in the states. I need to learn how to make it the proper way!

At my house, we do a kind of Italian fried pork chop that might be a bit similar. Thinly pounded pork dipped in egg, then Italian breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese with seasoning. Pan fried and DELICIOUS :)

It is amazing @allischaaff. Oh, I know what you're talking about. It is similar, but a bit stronger in taste, because of parmesan, but soooo goood. :)
