Wiener Schnitzel, a breaded cutlet, is deep-fried and then topped with oil. It is usually made of veal but can also be made from pork. It might also be made from chicken or beef in Australia.
This dish was named after Vienna, which is how Vienna is written in German.
Wiener Schnitzel first appeared in 1831 in a cookbook. It was then called eingebroselte Kalbsschnitzchen. The dish would eventually make its way to Vienna, Austria in 1857. It was popular in the rest of the region. One commenter from 1887 stated that it was “a culinary dream”. However, the dish he describes includes slices of lemon peel, sardines and gherkins as well as capers and an unknown assortment of spices.
The modern version of Wiener Schnitzel has many other names. It’s commonly served as a “pork tenderloin” in the Midwest of the United States and on a bun for a sandwich. It is also known in Latin America as “Milanesa” and in the Czech Republic it is “Rizek”.
