Jäegerschnitzel is a traditional German dish. It is a breaded and fried pork tenderloin served with a rich jager sauce made from a demi-glace, herbs, mushrooms, and cream. The schnitzel is pounded thin, breaded with flour, egg, and panko bread crumbs, and cooked in a mixture of butter and oil. It is typically served with side dishes such as spaetzle (German noodles) and red cabbage.
