"This is a family favorite of ours, my mom got the recipe from a German lady when we lived in Germany. You may use tenderized veal in place of the cube steaks in this recipe."

  1. In a shallow bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs using a fork.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. The oil should completely cover the bottom of the skillet. While the oil heats, dip cube steaks into the egg and milk, then dip into the flour mixture, and shake off the excess. Place in the hot skillet.
  3. Fry steaks on each side until golden brown, then reduce the heat to medium and cook until well done. Do not cover. Drizzle with lemon juice before serving.

This was better than I expected. After the meat was brown, I drained the fat and added 1/2 cup of broth. Before serving, I added the lemon juice to the pan juices and poured it over the steaks....

I made with cubed pork steaks. I loved weiner schinitzel when I spent some time in Germany. We have been unable to duplicate the scrumptious breading that we had our first week there. I had forg...

omit the cornmeal and you have chicken fried steak. Schnitzel means meat with crust, but is traditionally made with veal or pork.

Schnitzel can be made usig a variety of meats, Veal is excellent but expensive. I use pork loin sliced about 1/2 inch thick and lightly pounded out to reduce thickness. I then use bread crumb...
