Wurst vs. Schnitzel

By Jaxson

  • Schnitzel

    A schnitzel is a thin slice of meat fried in fat. The meat is usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderizer. Most commonly, the meats are breaded before frying. The breaded schnitzel is popular in many countries and is made using veal, pork, chicken, mutton, beef, or turkey. Schnitzel is very similar to the dish escalope in France, tonkatsu in Japan, cotoletta in Italy, kotlet schabowy in Poland, the milanesa of Mexico, Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, chuleta valluna in Colombia and chicken fried steak of the Southern United States.
