Schnitzel is a traditional German cuisine typically made with pork (and sometimes chicken). The meat is first prepared by tenderizing (beating), and is then coated in a thin layer of flour. The meat is then covered with raw, beaten egg, and is then rolled in fine bread crumbs and fried.
Schnitzel is often served with gravies or sauces. Gypsy schnitzel is schnitzel served with spicy tomato-like sauce, and jäger schnitzel is served with mushrooms and bacon. Many other variants of schnitzel exist, so go out and try them. Mmmm.
