Schnitzel & Gravy Bombs

There’s nothing better than a good schnitzel – or, wiener schnitzel vom schwein, as it’s known in German. A vigorously pounded meat, breaded and deep fried, and served with a lathering of gravy. mmmm… This must be what heaven tastes like. And if you really want to go crazy, serve it with some traditional german spaetzle. Now that’s a dish that doesn’t get enough notice.

Schnitzel is one of those dishes that’s really the only choice when it’s available. But sadly, it’s not available that often. I can count on one hand the amount restaurants around me that serve schnitzel. And that’s two hands too few. If I had my way we’d replace all fast food joints with schnitzel stands. Every corner would smell delicious! Can you imagine it? Well if you can’t then get cooking! You’re only a few minutes away from your very own schnitzeltopia.

  1. Fill ice cube tray with gravy. Each cube will be for 1 schnitzel bomb. Put in freezer for minimum 30 minutes, or until completely frozen.
  2. Add vegetable oil to Deep Fyer. Preheat Deep fryer to 180 degrees
  3. Season pork chops with salt and pepper.
  4. On a flour-covered board, pound out pork chops to ⅛” - ¼” thickness. The thinner the better, but don’t allow any tears or holes to form. The goal is to have a 4-5” diameter circular-shaped patty. Cut edges of pounded chop as necessary to leave as circular a shape as possible.
  5. Use wet-hand, dry-hand technique to egg wash, flour coat, egg wash and panko coat your pork chops. Set coated chops aside
  6. Remove frozen gravy cubes from tray. Create each bomb by carefully wrapping each gravy cube with a schnitzel patty. Use two skewers or toothpicks to close the top of Schnitzel Bomb (see video for technique).
  7. Holding the skewers, carefully drop the Schnitzel bombs into deep fryer. Fry at 180 degrees for approximately 2 minutes, until golden brown.
