You’ve likely enjoyed a wiener schnitzel before. And, if not, today is an especially fantastic opportunity to try one. The wiener schnitzel is a famous deep-fried, bread-battered meaty dish originating in Austria. The Austrians are proud of their national dish and they’ve even created laws to uphold its recipe: wiener schnitzels are sometimes (mistakenly) made with pork, but in Austria law dictates that wiener schnitzels are only made with tender veal meat.
Tenderized to a thin sliver, then salted, breaded, and deep-fried in clarified butter, creating a wiener schnitzel is a traditional tasty treat. These dishes are typically served with a lettuce salad, potato salad, or cucumber salad. In recent years, wiener schnitzels are served with more modern sides: fries, rice, and mashed potatoes.
Around the world, wiener schnitzel is made with different meats – to the absolute shock of Austrians and their laws. Some recipes call for pork, or even chicken, and serve it in a sandwich or burger bun. This dish is very easy to make at home, meaning anyone can celebrate this national day – and enjoy their favorite meat in their wiener schnitzels. Try out a traditional Austrian recipe, and share your results with some friends and family for dinner.
