The Jaegerschnitzel Recipe I show you in this post.
The hunter’s Schnitzel escalope is called “Escalope chasseur” in French.
Classically you prepare the popular schnitzel with pork or veal.
You also need a good gravy, shallots, mushrooms and butter.
Most questions about this preparation relate to the sauce…
How you can get a great sauce on your plate I will describe below.

Simple instructions for preparing Jaegerschnitzel.
|2||pc||veal escalopes (or pork schnitzel)|
|2||pinches||Paprika noble sweet (my secret ingredient!)|
|250||ml||gravy (roast pork juice or veal stock)|
Make the ingredients available, think about a side dish, I have prepared mashed potatoes as a side dish.
Cut the shallot in half, peel and dice finely.
Alternatively, you can use a yellow onion.
Clean the mushrooms, cut them into slices or slices and fry them in a pan with clarified butter.
The mushrooms may take on colour.
Next, add the prepared shallots and sauté until colourless.
Put the onions and mushrooms from the pan in a bowl.
Gently tap the slices of meat between the cling film with a plating iron.
Please do not use a classic meat chopper, otherwise you will leave marks on the meat.
Season plated escalopes with salt and pepper and fry on both sides in a pan.
Add onions and mushrooms to the pan.
Season the preparation with a little sweet paprika, add the gravy immediately and cook for a few minutes with the lid on.
You can serve a veal escalope lightly pink, please cook the pork and turkey.
Arrange the schnitzel with the desired side dish and serve.
Enjoy your meal!
I have found the flouring of the schnitzel before browning in many recipes.
I don’t like the flour-fried schnitzel very much and prefer to bind the sauce with some cornflour or with a raw and finely grated potato.

3. Tips for Preparing Jaegerschnitzel
The naturally roasted Schnitzerl with mushrooms is prepared in different regional ways and put on the plate.
Here I present you my variant:
For the sauce you need a veal stock from a glass or another simple gravy.
Please do not use beef gravy, it is too strong in taste.
The preparation is very simple:
- First clean the mushrooms and cut into small pieces.
- Fry the mushrooms in clarified butter over a high heat in a pan.
- Add finely chopped shallots and sweat briefly until translucent.
- Remove the mushrooms and shallots from the pan and place them in a bowl.
- Roast aromas have already formed in the pan.
- Lightly plate the schnitzel and season with salt and pepper.
- Fry the meat in the pan with clarified butter on both sides and let it take on colour.
- Add a secret ingredient, see recipe!
- Add the mushrooms and shallots again, pour in the gravy or gravy and steam with a lid at a reduced temperature.
I have preparation, mushrooms first roast and then only the Schnitzerl, turned over.
So the ingredients can unfold their wonderful taste when browned evenly.
