How to make Wiener Schnitzel, the Austrian national dish, and so delicious
I recently became vegan, so I don’t eat animal products of any kind. But, when I did, Wiener Schnitzel was at the top of my list of things to eat in Vienna. A high fat, high calorie, breaded and pan-fried veal cutlet, the Wiener Schnitzel is Austria’s national dish. And yes, it is delicious.
A couple of months ago, I was out eating lunch with a friend at a lovely restaurant in Türkenschanzpark and I ordered the Wiener Schnitzel. And I have to say it was one of the best I have ever eaten.
Moist, flavorful on the inside, crispy and satisfying on the outside, and it arrived with some of the best French fries I’ve ever had too. Washed down with a glass of Austria’s Ottakringer beer and followed by an Apfel Strudel and custard, and it was one of the nicest meals I have eaten so far in Vienna.
If you would like to try making Wiener Schnitzel yourself, it is actually a lot easier than it may seem. In fact, this video from the Austrian Tourist Board makes it look so simple, you could probably make your own in just a few minutes.
