Plate arranging

Arrange the schnitzel with the desired side dish and serve.

Enjoy your meal!

I have found the flouring of the schnitzel before browning in many recipes.

I don’t like the flour-fried schnitzel very much and prefer to bind the sauce with some cornflour or with a raw and finely grated potato.

3. Tips for Preparing Jaegerschnitzel

The naturally roasted Schnitzerl with mushrooms is prepared in different regional ways and put on the plate.

Here I present you my variant:

For the sauce you need a veal stock from a glass or another simple gravy.

Please do not use beef gravy, it is too strong in taste.

The preparation is very simple:

I have preparation, mushrooms first roast and then only the Schnitzerl, turned over.

So the ingredients can unfold their wonderful taste when browned evenly.

Hunter’s schnitzel with morel jus is a gourmet schnitzel… The veal stock I’ll show you somewhere else.
