Pronunciation /ˈʃnɪtz(ə)l/
A thin slice of veal or other light meat, coated in breadcrumbs and fried.

From German Schnitzel, literally ‘slice’.


Waal, shucks, I don’t want no schnitzel. Just fry me up a breaded veal cutlet.

Oh, and, by the way, Wiener Schnitzel has nothing to do with hot dogs. It is schnitzel in the style of chefs from Vienna (Wien, Austria).
