Pork Schnitzel with Dill Sauce

Schnitzel is one of my husband’s favorites because it reminds him of his German roots. An appealing dish for guests, it’s ready in a jiffy. Pop it on buns for a fun handheld option. —Joyce Folker, Paraowan, Utah

    Will redo the stars rating once I have made it. Reading through recipe I noticed that the 1 1/2 cups chicken broth is divided. Found instruction to whisk it with flour, however cannot find the other use for it. None of the other reviews mentioned this. Please clarify.

    I have a love of German food from my mother’s family and from having lived in Germany for five years in the 1980s. In Germany schnitzel is usually made with veal, but I use pork. My understanding is that authentic schnitzels are fried in lard, but I use mild oil and butter. Panko bread crumbs work the best. Just salt and pepper for seasoning, with lemon squeezed over top when serving. Great sandwich with dill pickles!

    We're loved this recipe. My 7 year old requested it again today. Recommend!

    I make this regularly for my husband who is Swiss. I add grated parmesan cheese, onion powder and a little garlic powder to the crumb mixture to make the taste a little more interesting, he likes the left overs for breakfast the next morning. I sometimes pair this recipe with pasta and red sauce, yum!

    Have been making versions of this my entire life. Both my parents came from Europe - every person I have made this meal for now puts their own spin on this. Fantastci basic recipe to play with.

    The wiener schnitzel was amazing. but the sauce was totally disgusting. Inedible and threw it away. Find another recipe for the sauce. This one tasted like warm thickened sour cream. Yuk!! Husband born in Germany and his mother came here with him when she was in her late 20's. It is like she used to make. Very flavorful and attractive. Cooks really fast.

    I've tried making pork schnitzel a few times but could never quite find "the" recipe. My search is now over. My family absolutely loved this. The paprika gives the delicious crispy crust a beautiful color. The dill sauce was the perfect compliment. Once the prep work is done this dish is fast, and definitely company worthy!

    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.
