Saturday Sandwich 62: Veal Schnitzel

Apparently veal is quite popular in Harrogate because we tried two butchers who had sold out of it before we struck lucky in a third butcher shop. They had veal already tenderised into a escalope too, which was handy.

Ingredients: veal, bread rolls, panko breadcrumbs, egg, flour, mustard and hot sauce.

Dip the flattened veal steak in flour, then egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Shallow fry in a pan until cooked and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.


Sandwich the veal schnitzel in the bread roll adding mustard and hot sauce to the top of the veal.


This was a very appetising sandwich thanks to the golden brown crispy looking panko breadcrumbs. The sauces added went really well together too making it a nice spicy bite each time. The veal didn't add much to the sandwich, it could easily have been pork instead. The veal wasn't tender (despite being malleted beforehand) and was difficult to bite into when eating the sandwich. The first bite of mine led to the veal being dragged out of the breadcrumbs so I had to poke it back in. Still, it was a nice simple sandwich to make and we enjoyed it.
