Simple instructions for preparing Rahmschnitzel – Cream Schnitzel.
Rahmschnitzel in zwei Varianten
|2||pc||schnitzel resp. escalope (or smoked tofu)|
|1||tbs||sun flower oil (or clarified butter)|
|50||ml||dry white wine|
|100||ml||Cream (or soy cream)|
|2||pinches||Paprika noble sweet (my secret ingredient!)|
Side Dishes and Decoration
|180||g||Spätzle (or other egg noodles)|
|2||tsp||Cranberries (ready made from the glas)|
Prepare the ingredients and the side dish Spätzle.
Bring the cranberries into reach.
Prepare shallots cubes:
Cut the shallots in half, peel and finely dice them.
Alternatively, you can use a yellow onion.
Clean the mushrooms, cut them into slices or slices.
Cut some mushrooms smaller, the taste of the sauce will be better.
Gently knock out the shreds between the cling film with a plating iron.
Please do not use a classic pulp beater, otherwise you will leave marks on the meat.
Season the meat with salt and pepper, then place in flour on both sides and fry on all sides in a hot pan.
Remove the schnitzel and brown the mushrooms with colour.
Add the shallots and sauté until translucent.
Put the meat back in the pan.
Deglaze with the white wine and the broth and bring to the boil, slowly add the cream and continue cooking.
Season the sauce and cook with the lid on.
Heat the spaetzle in butter and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Serve the cream escalope with sauce and garnish, add cranberries, sprinkle with parsley and serve quickly.
Flour the schnitzel or thicken the sauce with starch:
You can also save yourself the trouble of flouring the schnitzel. Then bind the sauce with cold mixed starch.
The Tofu Schnitzel is even easier to prepare. The meat knocking is omitted, the sauce on basis of mushrooms and onion cubes prepare and as in the paragraph here described bind. Fry the tofu briefly in a ribbed pan at high heat.
Remark to the Tofu-Schnitzel picture in the article:
I served the dish with asparagus and potatoes, chopped the mushrooms and onions with very little soy cream in the food processor. This is how a kind of mushroom paste was created that tastes excellent. That would be another variation…
Chef’s secret tip:
This tip is only for smart people who read this post to the end…
You can refine the cream sauce with very little lemon dust. You will be enthusiastic about the taste of the sauce… promised!
Mushrooms sometimes get dirty in the kitchen.

3. Tips for Preparing Classic Cream Schnitzel
To get in the mood, I have made an overview of the preparation here…
- Think first about the side dishes, spaetzle or fried potatoes or mashed potatoes
- Clean and chop the mushrooms.
- You can use champigons, chanterelles, oyster mushrooms and porcini mushrooms.
- Cut the shallot or yellow onion into fine cubes.
- Lightly plate the schnitzel, season with salt and pepper.
- Place one side of the cutlet in flour.
- Fry the meat in the pan with a little more oil or clarified butter on both sides and let it take on colour.

- First fry the mushrooms vigorously in the pan.
- Add the diced shallot and sweat until translucent.
- Deglaze with white wine and broth and bring to the boil.

- Put the schnitzel back in the pan and fry briefly with the lid on.
- Arrange side dishes, bring sauce to the boil, season and refine with fresh parsley.

Tofu I grill very briefly in the grooved pan. So a nice pattern comes on the cut surfaces. You can see this in the picture above.
4. Tip for Vegan Cream Schnitzel
The present time brings with it many changes.
More and more people want to eat less meat or even do without animals completely.
The reasons are different: For example, the sluggish improvements in animal husbandry, associated with the demand to reduce animal suffering.
Or the health aspect: Eating little meat means creating balance.
Vegan cream schnitzel, a good idea if your guests don’t eat meat…Tip from chef Thomas Sixt
I would like to show you a simple idea of how you can prepare the classic dish in a vegan or vegetarian version using the cream escalope.
One variant is to buy a vegetarian or vegan meat substitute.
But today I prefer smoked tofu. Instead of cream you can use soy cream.
The butter remains as an ingredient, for a vegan preparation simply leave it out.
