Schnitzel! The Best in German Food.

Schnitzel (German pronunciation: [ˈʃnɪtsəl]) is a traditional Austrian dish made with boneless meat thinned with a mallet (escalope-style preparation), coated in breadcrumbs and fried.  Although the traditional Wiener Schnitzel is made of veal, it is now often made of pork. When made of pork, it is often called Schnitzel Wiener Art in Germany, in Austria, by law it has to be called Wiener Schnitzel vom Schwein to differentiate it from the original. In Austria and Germany, the term Wiener Schnitzel is protected by law, and any schnitzel called by that name has to be made from veal.[1]   One hypothesis is that it could have been brought to Austria during the Battle of Vienna in 1683 by Polish and German troops.

My 5 years in Ramstein, Germany saw chicken schnitzel atop my favorite dishes, along with the best fries in the world, pomme frites with a side of mayo.  It just gets no better. Yum.
