This dish is similar to Stroganoff only made with pork. The word Geschnetzeltes Ge-Schnet-zel- tess means sliced meat in German. I had so much trouble pronouncing this word I had to try and find an image to help me. So I think Schnitzel or say Schnetzel ....I put the Ge before it and the Tess after it and now I can remember it easy.
It certainly is a nice dish to have in your back pocket because you can prepare it quickly and simply and it is good comfort food most everyone enjoys.

Ingredients: 1 lb Lean Pork, such as pork loin
1 medium onion
1 lb mushrooms
2-3 tablespoons oil for saute
1 tablespoon sweet paprika (not spicy)
3 cups water or stock for sauce
Chicken or beef boullion to season water.
1 cup Sour cream or yogurt
Cut the Pork into Strips by slicing small 1/2 inch steaks then slice it into strips.
The strips Should be very thin. Especially if you use a tougher cut of meat, this will increase the tenderness.
1/4 inch dice the onions and slice the mushrooms and stage on a plate.
Saute the onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons oil till tender, then add the mushrooms and saute till lightly brown. Reserve back to plate
Add more oil then saute the pork strips with the paprika till lightly brown.
Add the onions and mushrooms.
Next add water or stock and bring to a simmer. Cook for 30 minutes.
Add some of the slurry and cook 5 minutes to thicken. Add a bit more if too thin.It will continue to thicken a little as it cooks. Next mix some of the sauce in a bowl with the sour cream or yogurt and then blend into the sauce. This tempers the sour cream and won't separate which often happens if you blend in too cold.
I order from the German Deli more frequently than ever.
I try to get in bulk to make the shipping dollars count.
Also there are sales all the time I like to take advantage of.
They are nice folks. If you don't believe me call them.
