A Wiener Schnitzel is a breaded veal cutlet. It is dipped in flour, egg, and bread crumbs, then fried in butter or oil to a golden brown. It is traditionally served with a lemon wedge, which you can use to drizzle fresh lemon juice over the schnitzel.
A note to those who are not so familiar with German cuisine … if you are in a German restaurant and do not know what to select off the menu, start with a Wiener Schnitzel. You will not be let down. It is delicious!
