Reviews for Pork Schnitzel with Dill Sauce
"Got this EXACT recipe from the Wisconsin Gas & Electric company Home Economist in the early 1970s . Didn't like it then. Tried this again and still don't like it. This time tossed BOTH copies out."
"This was only ok for us. It wasn't awful, but it was not terribly flavorful. Just a little too bland for our household."
"Was very good & we loved the sauce. It was an added bonus."
"Sour cream dill sauce is a must! I breaded the pork ahead of time and put it on a plate in the fridge. Once company arrived, it cooked up quickly. Wonderful flavor."
"My husband, who travels often to Germany for business, gave this high marks!"
"This was a hit! My family enjoyed it. I'll add chopped onion to the dill sauce next time because I thought it was a little on the bland side."
"Delicious and so much fun to make. The pork was well seasoned and tasty and the sauce went really well with it."
"I used a pork tenderloin whole boneless about 2 1/2 lbs. sliced it about 1/2 inch. Pounded it with back of big frying pan. Went quick and wasn't expensive. I did double recipe . Results were fantastic! Sauce was complimentary. Perfect for entertaining as I breaded everything ahead of time and the fry time was quick! In the recipe box this goes!"
"Easy and company worthy. Delicious!"
"I have made this several times. It is super easy. ! Also the sauce is out of this world !!"
"Delicious and incredibly easy! Instead of pounding the pork, we just got super-thin pork chops from the store. Worked great."
"Sure gut essen! I loved the way the sauce came together without added fat. I used a little more dill than suggested. I also used 1 egg and 3 tablespoons pasturized egg whites because I had to use them up. Worked just as well. I also put the coated cutlets (I started with cubed pork that I further pounded) on a rack set into a rimmed cookie sheet and refrigerated them to proof...the topping sticks much better. I deglazed the pan with a little white wine before making the sauce. This is a keeper, and I will certainly make it again. Thank you for posting!"
"Huge hit at our Oktoberfest style dinner! I had a couple of the guests do the pounding of the pork cutlets--they had a lot of fun. Dill sauce was yummy."
"This was absolutely delicious!!! Pork was so tender!"
"Very good recipe. Will definately add this to my dinner list."
"This was a big hit at our house. The pork as very tender and the dill sauce was very yummy. It was pretty simple to make and the ingredients were pretty mush kitchen staples at my house."
"Absolutely fantastic. Took me a while to pound out the cutlets, so I would say closer to 30 minutes than 20, but this was delicious. I fried in coconut oil instead of vegetable oil b/c it's better for you, and it turned out great. Will definitely be making again!"
"This is one of the best meals I have ever cooked. Absolutely delicious!"
"We have made this several times. This time I baked the Schnitzel and it was even better."
"This was fabulous! It was our first time making schnitzel and I was impressed at how well it turned out. My husband and I both think it's one of the best meals we've made! Will for sure make again."
"We liked this very much!"
"Lots of flavor. I happen to love dill, but for those who don't, it is very mild. Since there are only two of us I cut this recipe in thirds. Perfect!"
"Wow...does this ever make your pork chops moist and tender! My family "LOVED" this. I did revise the gravy/sauce that goes over it due to I'm not big on dill flavor. I just made the sauce without the dill seasoning and it was still yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe...it's wonderful!"
"My family is also of German descent and one of the things I really missed after moving away was SCHNITZEL! This is FABULOUS!!! My mom never made the dill sauce before...we normally used ketchup, but the dill sauce was a great addition!"
