Wienerschnitzel is for me the top of comfortfood!
It should be fried in so much butter and oil that it almost becomes like you deep fry it.
They are ready when they are golden and crispy.
Personally, I do not like that it is too greasy so I add it to “dry” on paper for a while before I serve.

Sauce for Wienerschnitzel, for me it does not exist, only lemon that is squeezed over together with capers and possibly. anchovy.

Sides for Wienerschnitzel.
Here I recommend this recipe for parsley potatoes.

Red wine:
Beaujolais is well suited as it is fruity and easy to drink, they are produced in the southern part of Burgundy and are made from the Gamay grape.

White wine:
Grüner Veltliner which is fruity or a Gewurztraminer from the Alsace region in France.

I myself prefer to drink beer, and then a Pilsner Urquell.

  • 4 slices veal fillet
  • 2-3 egg
  • 1 dl wheat flour
  • 4 dl panko

  • salt and pepper season the fillets before breading


  • Beat out the files so that you become thin, I use to put baking paper over so I do not have to wash the meat hammer (it is also fine to use a rolling pin). When they are beaten out, salt and pepper them to taste.
