Easy Veal Schnitzel 

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes



  • 6 thin veal steaks
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups coarse breadcrumbs, like Panko
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • lemon wedges to serve


Pound veal with a meat mallet if thick.

In a shallow pie dish mix together salt, pepper, and flour. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs and 2 Tbsp water. In a third bowl add the breadcrumbs.

Dredge the veal in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Place veal on a plate and chill 30 minutes.

Pour enough oil in the pan to cover the bottom and heat over medium-high. Once hot, add the veal and cook until golden, about 3-4 minutes per side. Serve with lemon.


You can also use pork for this recipe as well.

This Schnitzel goes great with a simple green salad.
