THE RECIPE

Wienerschnitzel

Authentic German fare for Oktoberfest

We’re getting into the Oktoberfest spirit today with this classic recipe for wienerschnitzel. Traditionally made with veal, schnitzel can also be made with pork, like Heidi does here. Bone-in pork chops (for extra flavor) are pounded until then then breaded according to standard procedure. Instead of deep-frying the cutlets, these are shallow-fried in a pan until golden and crispy. Serve this schnitzel alongside braised cabbage, spaetzle, boiled potatoes tossed with butter and parsley, and a big wedge of lemon to help cut the richness. Paired with a cold German beer, this meal will transport you to the biergartens of Germany from the comfort of your own kitchen.
