Schnitzel is a dish extremely popular throughout central Europe. Its origin can be traced back to German-speaking countries, i.e., Germany and Austria, where the Schnitzel comes from. Over time, Schnitzel has become a hit in many cuisines around the world!
Let's take a look at the best Schnitzel types, made with different kinds of meat.
Schnitzel is traditionally made from thin cutlets of pork. Short and effective frying gives the pork cutlets a nice crispy exterior, while the inside remains juicy. Serve with potatoes, and don't forget to squeeze some lemon juice over the meal before eating!
