Today’s recipe is for the schnitzel at Epcot’s Biergarten Restaurant in the German pavilion. The dish is offered with a hunter sauce, a classic brown sauce consisting of mushrooms, shallots and white wine and sometimes tomatoes and parsley. French cookbooks refer to it as a chasseur sauce. However, the dish can be served with freshly squeezed lemon juice as well.
Schnitzel is the German word for “cutlet,” usually describing meat that is dipped in egg, breaded and pan-fried. Any variety of meat can be used — veal, pork, or chicken.
