    I'm going to have to try this one. I have been looking for a while for a Jagerschnitzel recipe that sounds tasty. And this one does. Thanks. Gotta have potato dumplings with this too. And a nice German white wine. Yum. Lori

    I dont like shrooms (can get past the texture) but I do like the sauce that comes from this so I just push the shrooms aside, LOL. Great recipe!

    My husband made this last night... added his own touch of course (not change of ingredients, just amounts - he's an eyeballer)
    It was DE - LISH - US... we used a red onion - we will have to use a less-sweet one next time, but I seriously ate it up before I realized it was gone! You got my five.

    I made this for my family this last weekend...It came out great! Everyone loved it, all was gone, but picture this - I'm cleaning the kitchen and I'm putting the wine in the fridge...right on the front, top shelf is the sour cream! Did I forget the schnitzel or the Jager? Either way, it's going to be a do-over. My family loved it. Thanks for a great recipe!
