Jaeger Schnitzel

Schnitzel is the German word for “cutlet” and describes meat that is dipped in egg, breaded and fried. “Jaeger,” or “hunter’s style,” means that the schnitzel is served with a mushroom gravy.


· 1 Tbsp. butter
· 1/4 cup finely-chopped shallots or onion
· 8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced (about 3 cups)
· 1/2 cup dry sherry
· 2 cups beef or venison stock
· 1/4 cup all-purpose four
· 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt

Other Ingredients:

· 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
· 1/2 tsp. coarsely-ground pepper
· 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
· 1 lb. boneless venison loin steaks, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
· 2 eggs, slightly beaten
· 1/2 cup dry, unseasoned bread crumbs
· 3 Tbsp. oil
· 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
· Lemon wedges or slices

For gravy, in 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add shallots. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and sherry. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally.

In two-cup measure, combine stock and 1/4 cup flour. Gradually stir stock mixture into pan. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt. Set aside and keep warm.

In shallow dish, combine 1/3 cup flour, the pepper and 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt. Dredge steaks in flour mixture to coat. Dip steaks in eggs, then dredge in bread crumbs. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook steaks for 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned, turning steaks over once.

Sprinkle steaks evenly with juice. Serve with gravy and lemon wedges.

When I do schnitzel I let the meat rest about 10 minutes between each dredging..
so in egg wash and rest, in flower and rest, in eggs and rest then in crumbs and rest before putting in pan.
I find the ingredients hold better on the meat by letting them glue on so to speak..

Plus gives time to relax and have a brew or two..
