Schnitzel with Mushroom Gravy Recipe


- 4 pork or chicken cutlets

- 1 cup all-purpose flour

- 2 eggs, beaten

- 1 cup breadcrumbs

- Salt and pepper to taste

- 1/2 cup vegetable oil

- 1 onion, chopped

- 2 cloves of garlic, minced

- 8 oz mushrooms, sliced

- 2 cups beef or chicken broth

- 1/4 cup heavy cream

- 2 tbsp butter

- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped


1. Pound the pork or chicken cutlets until they are about 1/4 inch thick. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Set up a breading station with three shallow dishes. Place flour in the first dish, beaten eggs in the second dish, and breadcrumbs in the third dish.

3. Dredge each cutlet in flour, then dip in the beaten eggs, and finally coat with breadcrumbs. Make sure the cutlets are evenly coated with breadcrumbs.

4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the breaded cutlets until they are golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

5. In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic, sauté until translucent.

6. Add sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they are golden brown and tender, about 5-7 minutes.

7. Pour in beef or chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Let it cook for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

8. Stir in heavy cream and simmer for another 2-3 minutes until the gravy thickens slightly.

9. Season the mushroom gravy with salt and pepper to taste, then add chopped parsley for freshness.

10. Serve the schnitzel topped with mushroom gravy and enjoy with your favorite sides such as mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables.
