Wiener Schnitzel with Jaeger Sauce

Jaeger Sauce Recipe is one of the most frequent search terms bringing visitors to this blog. Although I’ve written about authentic German Jaeger Schnitzel before, I’ve never described the actual recipe for the matching sauce.

A quick recap: Wiener Schnitzel is a breaded and fried veal or pork cutlet. An authentic Jaeger Schnitzel is the same cutlet without breading, sauteed and served with a brown mushroom sauce.

Texans seem to love their Jaeger Schnitzel breaded, so we serve it that way at our Austin, TX food trailer, Chef Keem’s Bavarian Bistro. I love a breaded Jaeger Schnitzel myself!
