Pariser Schnitzel Recipe
(Cutlet with Flour and Egg)

This Pariser Schnitzel recipe, with its flour and egg-wash crust, would have us believe that the Parisians are not as fond of breadcrumbs as the Viennese. Whether that is true or not, the Pariser Schnitzel provides another cooking option for any meat cutlet you prefer to serve.

As with the other Schnitzel types, one of the keys to an excellent Pariser Schnitzel is the pounding. You can't be afraid to make a little noise and put a little muscle into it. Ideally, a 1/2-inch think cutlet will be pounded out to about three times its original size prior to frying. Don't stress if you create a few holes or rips in the meat while pounding, but try not to overpound and end up with a paper-thin sheet of meat that will have no meat texture once fried.

Bratkartoffeln or Salzkartoffeln will make an excellent side with this Pariser Schnitzel.
