Hunter Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce

hunterschnitzel with mushroom sauce

This recipe for a Hunter Schnitzel with mushroom sauce comes from the Swabian region. The meat will be turned only in flour then fried. It’s not the version with the breaded meat. You can also use veal instead of pork. The meat for this dish will not be used with breadcrumbs like in the Winer Schnitzel recipe. If you like you can use exactly the “panade” (flour, eggs, breadcrumbs) for the meat if you like.
Spatzle are for sure a perfect side dish but French Fries or Bratkartoffeln is in my opinion a good choice too. Happy Cooking!
