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.

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.
