Wiener Schnitzel: Fried veal with salad


  1. - 4 veal cutlets, pounded to 1/4 inch thickness

  2. - Salt and pepper

  3. - 1 cup all-purpose flour

  4. - 2 eggs, beaten

  5. - 1 cup breadcrumbs

  6. - Vegetable oil, for frying

  7. - 1 head of lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces

  8. - 1 cucumber, sliced

  9. - 1 red onion, thinly sliced

  10. - 1/4 cup white wine vinegar

  11. - 1/2 cup olive oil

  12. - Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Season the veal cutlets with salt and pepper on both sides.

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

3. Dredge each veal cutlet in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the cutlet into the beaten eggs, making sure it is fully coated. Finally, coat the cutlet in the breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.

4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of the pan.

5. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the breaded veal cutlets to the skillet. Fry the cutlets for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

6. While the veal is frying, prepare the salad. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, cucumber, and red onion.

7. In a small bowl, whisk together the white wine vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

8. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.

9. Once the veal cutlets are cooked, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

10. Serve the Wiener Schnitzel hot with the salad on the side. Enjoy this delicious and classic dish!
