Wiener Schnitzel

For the traditional Wiener Schnitzel, the Viennese normally use veal, and lard to fry it. But you can also use pork, chicken or turkey and oil to fry it. It will taste just as delicious either way!

Wiener Schnitzel



  • four escalopes of 120 grams each

For the breading

  • flour
  • 2 eggs
  • breadcrumbs
  • salt
  • oil or lard for frying


Pound the meat thin and cut the fringes carefully.
Salt lightly, bread them and put them in a saucepan and fry both sides of them in hot fat.
There should be enough fat in the saucepan so that the schnitzel float in the saucepan and do not touch the bottom.


Prepare three plates: Put flour on one, breadcrumbs on a second and two eggs that have been whisked. Cover the meat first in the flour, then in the egg and finally in the breadcrumbs.
