This was absolutely scrumptious. As you said the sauce makes it and I agree 100%. I have to say I was born in Newark, NJ in 1946 when it was a predominantly German neighborhood I grew up in. I knew Schnitzel. Never knew others thought it was like a hot dog. I ate many in my life and yours is right up there at the top. Delicious.
Very delicious, I used pork loin and i added 1/4 tsp of baking soda mixed wit 2 tbs water and soaked it for 20 minutes. No need to rinse just go to the next step. I’m so pleased that my pork was so moist and tender and the outside was super crunchy I served it with slice of lemon. This is a keeper.
Easy to make and delicious. Will be making this again. I love the sour cream sauce.
I loved this recipe!! I only had a hard time making the sour cream sauce, it kept on separating. I used all the correct ingredients. Is there anything I could have done wrong?
Hi Viviana, make sure you use full-fat sour cream, and make sure you keep the heat moderate so that the sauce doesn’t boil.
It was a hit, my husband couldn’t get enough. I added sliced mushrooms to the sauce for another layer of flavor.
I made this tonight and it was fantastic. I ended up doubling the recipe but seemed to only need more of the Panko coating for my 9 chops, which I subbed for gluten free breadcrumbs because that’s what I had. I felt it didn’t take 3 minute a side, more like 1-2. The cream sauce was yummy. I did add 1T cornstarch mixed with 1T water to thicken and it was great. My kids were high-fiving me. My son went to Austria this summer and this was his favorite dish over all of Europe. Served with some roasted herbed red potatoes and lemon slices. Awesome.
I made this for dinner last night exactly as written and everyone LOVED it!! 10 out of 10. Will be making it again soon. Thank you for the recipe!!
My best friend’s family is from Austria but they’ve “Americanized” this recipe over the years so that it’s very similar to what’s listed. They taught me to use Kellogg’s Cornflake crumbs instead of bread or panko. They’re difficult to find but I’ve had luck at most Publix locations. They serve the schnitzel with creamy dill dip and with a cucumber/vinegar salad and mashed potatoes on the side. The complementary textures and flavors are amazing!
Hi Mary, my grandmother used to use crushed cornflakes as a topping too. They work great!
The panko you find in the asian isle.
Made this tonight for my family. The only thing the didn’t like about it was I didn’t make enough!! My boyfriend gave it 3.5 stars out of 4. Served it with California blend broccoli. Very satisfying dinner.
I hate pork and hate dill weed. LOVED this!
As an expat in China, I’ve found this recipe a gem. Some of the worlds best pork comes from China, where they’re pretty fanatic about consuming it too, and most of the other ingredients are readily available. All the girls in my house loved it. I’m back in credit – Thanks!
(Continued) so I used dried basil in place of the dill, n did everything else as directed n served with homemade mashed potatoes n a side salad. It was incredible, even my picky 2 yr old is devouring it! Thanks so much! ;)
Enjoying this awesome recipe with homemade mashed potatoes and a side salad as we speak, n lemme tell u, for one I didn’t have dill
Excellent recipe… we substituted turkey breast cutlets, and it was great! The dill/sour cream sauce was a tasty addition. Thanks for a great, quick dinner idea.
Tried this tonight and it was GREAT! Used lite sour cream, “smoked” paprika (didn’t have regular) and added a little extra …used some of the left over flour in the sauce to thicken(since I used lite sour cream). Easy and really tasty! Will be making this again! Had “thick” pork chops, so I filleted them in half, but still pounded them. I’m thrilled this dish came out so good!
Another awesome dish! Growing up in a German household, we had schnitzel a lot. This is soooo good! Even my fussy 5 year old son loved it. He said, “can I have some more chicken please.” Ha,ha! I used the pork loin chops and pounded them. I made a side dish of glazed carrots to go with the pork. Very tasty…love the sauce too!
Thanks for posting! Love your website…I refer to it often.
Oh, forgot to ask something. Do you have any tips to prevent schnitzels from burning? I wiped the skillet in between frying them but the next one still came out darker than the previous one :(
I would lower the heat a little bit. ~Elise
Mmmm, this was yummy! Next time I’ll try to pound the cutlets even thinner because my mom has a hard time chewing thick cuts of meat. Also, the sauce took a long time to thicken, and I was running out of time so I threw in some flour to speed up the process. And I used reduced-fat sour cream which by itself had a funny taste but luckily, dill helped to mask that. Will definitely add this dish to our rotation! Thanks!
First: WEINER means it comes from Vienna ( or Vien, as they say )Ach! We Americans need to get out of the country more!!!
Second: Had my fill of Schnitzel when I visited Austria 2 years ago, but your recipe has me wanting it again, but I , too am in the “squeeze of lemon “camp, as oppossed to sauce.
Yes indeed that is the origin of “weiner”. That said, “weiner” is another colloquial term we use for a hot dog. As in, “do you want weiners for lunch?”, a common question in our home. The short version of it being, “weenie”. ~Elise
I am trying your pork schnitzel recipe tonight. A kind of October Fest thing. But I was very concerned that you are giving Americans a bad name. Are you serious, you thought that wiener schnitzel was a hot dog? You are better than that!!!!
