      A popular variation is made with pork instead of veal, because pork is
      cheaper than veal (usually about half the price). To avoid mixing up
      different products, the Austrian and German food committees have decided
      that a “Wiener Schnitzel” must be made of veal. A Schnitzel made of pork
      can be called “Schnitzel Wiener Art” or “Wiener Schnitzel vom Schwein”. The
      Verwaltungsgericht Arnsberg 2009 decided about the acceptability of the
      latter name. The result was that in common parlance in Germany, a “Wiener
      Schnitzel” no more referred exclusively to a veal dish, but instead to a
      breaded steak in general.

    Bon appetit … oder … Guten Appetit … ;o)

  11. TBJ Sports & Talk says:

    I agree and that is why its just called Chicken Fried Steak or Country
    Fried over here. I totally get what you’re saying. 😉

  12. mmbmbmbmb says:

    thanks for the insight … ;o) I am sure this Schnitzel tastes good, when
    you are hungry! However ~ a good idea would still be … NOT to call it
    WIENER Schnitzel ;o)

  13. TBJ Sports & Talk says:

    Its the American Schnitzel brought over by German/Austrian immigrants. Its
    only based off the Schnitzel and not the real thing. When you head to the
    areas the German world settled in America especially in Texas you get the
    better variations of the popular Austrian dish.

  14. TBJ Sports & Talk says:

    I’ve seen it cooked with Veal in the States which is Kalb. And yes I’ve had
    the real thing as well in Austria.

  15. TBJ Sports & Talk says:

    This is exactly what I thought it was when I went to Germany. The typical
    Country Fried/Chicken Fried steak is an American variation of the popular
    Weiner Schnitzel.

  16. TBJ Sports & Talk says:

    The actual weiner schnitzel is what the Chicken Fried or Country Fried is
    based off of. It came from Austrian and German immigrants to the USA. What
    you are referring to is more like a bratwurst.


    When we cook chicken fried steaks, we prefer the pork to the beef. It just
    seems to lend itself better to the seasonings we use! Yummy!!

    Wow, you made the bread pudding! Thanks!

    Hardy (probably tasty) Country-Cooking … yes. Wienerschnitzel ? … no!
    What you are doing here, has absolutely nothing to do with Wienerschnitzel.
    And ~ there are NO “variations” to Wienerschnitzel either. It is a Classic,
    and the most traditional dish of AUSTRIA (not Germany). Wien = Vienna …
    and Vienna is in Austria! Aren’t you glad you got this little lesson? No
    hard feelings I hope ;o)
