12 years ago today...

I moved to Germany. What have I learned in the last 12 years here (other than German)? Patience and how to make one heck of a schnitzel.


  1. Mmmmm... Schniiiiiiitzel... *drools*

  2. But... no recipe?

  3. It's easy...veal is the best, but pork will do.

    Pound it as thin as possible. A dash of salt, black pepper and paprika. Bread it by dredging in flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs. Add half oil and half butter to a skillet (better yet is clarified butter - with the milk solids and water removed leaving just the butterfat). Preheat the skillet and fry.

    Serve with a piece of lemon. Variants are "Jaeger Schnitzel" with a creamy mushroom sauce with thick chunks of bacon; "Zigeuner Schnitzel" with a creamy bell pepper sauce;...the list goes on and on.

  4. I usually make one in the oven rather than fry them :P
    They're healthier that way.

    And a cool Italian variant is called the Neapolitan (I think I spelled it right?) you add chhese, a slice of tomato and a slice of ham on top!
    It's like a schnitzza (schnitzel pizza)

  5. Patience and Schnitzel? Thats all? Must be a boring country.

  6. well, how to drink beer, how to drink large amounts of beer and how to drink large amounts of beer in crappy weather
