JAEGER SCHNITZEL

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 15 minutes .

Jaeger Schnitzel or Jägerschnitzel means hunter’s schnitzel. It’s a schnitzel topped with a mushroom sauce. Jaeger Schnitzel was originally made with venison or wild boar that was pounded thin. It’s generally made with pork. In Europe Wiener schnitzel, sometimes spelled Wienerschnitzel, as in Switzerland, is a type of schnitzel made of a thin, breaded, pan-fried veal cutlet. You can make your own breadcrumbs, add fresh herbs and serve with fried potatoes or rice.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 large egg, beaten
    3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
    5 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
    3 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 can (14.5 oz) beef broth
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation





  • 1. Place the pork chops between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them with the flat side of a meat tenderizer until they're 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.

    2
    If using fresh mushrooms, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat and add the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms have released their juices and the liquid is mostly evaporated. Transfer the mushrooms to a plate and set aside.

    3
    In the same skillet, melt the butter, add the flour, and whisk until the flour is dissolved. Continue to whisk constantly until the mixture is a rich, deep golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.

    4
    Slowly add the beef broth, whisking constantly, until combined. Return the mushrooms to the skillet. If using canned mushrooms, you'll add them at this point. Bring the gravy to a simmer, reduce to low, and simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes or until the gravy is thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

    5
    While the gravy is simmering let's get back to the Schnitzel. Dip the chops in the flour, the egg, and the breadcrumbs. Don't press the breadcrumbs into the meat. Coat gently but thoroughly, and shake off the excess crumbs.

    6
    Fry the Schnitzel for about 2-3 minutes on each side. When they're a deep golden brown, transfer them to a plate. Serve immediately with the mushroom gravy and your choice of sides.
