Contrary to popular belief, Wiener Schnitzel (Viennesian cutlet) is not a German dish, but an Austrian one and, it is believed, to have its origins in Italy.

       The authentic Austrian Wiener Schnitzel is made from tender veal, and that’s what was served at my mother’s table for years. Good veal has a delicate and sweet flavor. But, because it became expensive in the 60’s, she started making this meal with pork. And, while she cooked, music was often playing.

       Oh, what a delight!

       I enjoyed both meats, but I always made them with pork for my own family and still do today. While living at home, this dish was reserved primarily for Christmas. Every so often, she would also make them for special occasions – veal at Christmas time, pork otherwise. My brothers and I would argue about who could have how many and why.

       If you have not already, check out one of my favorite meals here. At my house, we still gather as a family every Christmas Eve and enjoy tradition with this fabulous presentation.
