Classic Viennese Schnitzel Recipe

Viennese schnitzel is one of the most popular dishes. The dish is simple to prepare, there are few ingredients, but there is one feature: you need to very beat off off a piece of veal! If the veal is badly beaten off, the breading will burn, and the meat inside will remain half-cooked. The first mention of the Viennese schnitzel dates back to 1884. Schnitzel is made from turkey and pork. But we’ll be making the classic Viennese veal schnitzel.
