  • 4 veal cutlets
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • vegetable oil , for frying
  • lemon slices, for garnishment
  • parsley, for garnishment


  • Use a meat tenderizer to pound the meat to 1/4 of an inch. This is very important, as it will keep your meat from tensing up as it gets hot.
  • Combine the milk and the eggs and whisk together. 
  • Put enough oil in the pan to come about halfway up the meat. Heat the oil until it reaches 350 degrees.
  • Dip each of the cutlets into the flour. Then dip them into the egg and then the breadcrumbs to coat. 
  • Put each cutlet in the pan (I fried them one at a time). Cook for about two minutes, flip, and then cook for about two minutes on the other side. 
  • Remove wiener schnitzel from the oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain oil. 
  • Squeeze lemon onto the meat and enjoy!
