Schnitzel. It’s one of those things I had always heard about and giggled at the name, but wasn’t quite sure what it was until now. Deutsche Küche Pork Schnitzel is one of the German foods that are out at ALDI now. You can find it in the frozen section, and each 24 oz package contains 6 cutlets and costs $6.99.
I cooked these up for dinner one night, from frozen, in my electric skillet with some oil, and they turned out great. Each pork loin is covered in a saltine cracker coating which gives it a nice, salty crunch. I ended up needing more oil than recommended on the package, because once I went to flip them, the other side had pretty much soaked up all the oil I had put in the skillet. Each cutlet was the perfect portion too. This would be great with some spaetzle and a veggie.
While this doesn’t have a ton of fat as is, (only 3.5 grams per serving), I’m guessing that this soaked up a bunch from the oil I cooked it in. It was also too many carbs for my hubby. Not the most health conscious of proteins, but something I will definitely buy again as a treat when it is back in stores next time around.
My ALDI had a few boxes left, so yours may still have some too! Be sure to give this one a try, along with all the other Deutsche Küche products before they are gone.
