Pork Schnitzel

Pork Schnitzel

If you are going to use the schnitzel for making sandwiches, omit the Dill Sauce. If you plan to serve the schnitzel as a main course, then do make the dill sauce. It's delicious! I love making sandwiches with the cutlets. I use a slice of tomato, a slice of onion, lettuce and mustard.
