"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" LdV

This recipe is from my Austrian part. My late grand-mother came from an Austrian town near the Slovenian border, in Carinthia. Each time I go back to Austria, I feel extraordinary at home, it's a little bit weird sometimes, the genes certainly ;). Anyhow, this dish is my children favorite when we are skiing in Austria so obviously, I had to replicate it at home, so here you are...  We use a lot of Butterschmalz (which is a clarified butter) in German and Austrian cooking. You can use ghee instead...

Wine pairing : Pinot noir (Red) from Alsace.

Gluten-free version
Use “Hale and Hearty” gluten-free breadcrumbs and use corn flour instead of flour. 
Follow the original recipe and enjoy! 

A quick glance in your kitchen...

Season the fillets with pepper.
Dip 1 fillet in flour to coat then dip in egg and finish with breadcrumbs.
Repeat for the second fillet.
Heat a pan with butter (never ever oil for schnitzel!!).
Cook the fillets 3 minutes each side ONLY.
Meanwhile, prepare the salad with the shallot, olive oil, mustard and balsamic vinegar.
Drizzle the fillets with lemon juice and serve with the salad.
