Schnitzel on the Grill

I made schnitzel for the first time yesterday and threw it on the grill. I think I might like it more than steak. It goes good with beer.

From Food & Drink

I did a Google search for schnitzel recipes, discovered I didn’t have all the necessary ingredients, so I improvised, which is all I ever do anyway. I sliced some pork loins about an inch thick; cut them around the edges so they wouldn’t shrivel up on the grill; I took all these ingredients — olive oil, 4 gloves of garlic, various amounts of paprika, curry power, fennel seeds, rosemary, parsley, pepper, kosher salt and probably a few more spices I can’t remember now — and mixed them all together in a big bowl; then I pounded the pork into all it, mushing it up real good, and I let it sit covered in the fridge for a couple hours. Then I just cooked it on the BBQ (or outdoor grill for the purists) with corn on the cob and zucchini fresh from my garden. Done. It may be the best thing I’ve had on the BBQ this summer.

  1. I’m not a big fan of pork, but this does sound very good. I hadn’t heard about the trick of scoring the edges of the meat to prevent shriveling – gonna hafta try that!

  2. I read somewhere, that I trust implicitly, that this was his dog. Look at that hind haunch – that’s clearly canine!

    Eating dogs is not ok!

    As a side note – naming your dog after delicious food is not ok either!
