German Schnitzel and Potatoes with Gorgonzola Cream
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 4 hours
I had to tweak this recipe because fresh pork was not available when I went shopping this week. I did find frozen breaded cutlets and used them. I made the sauce with gorgonzola and evaporated milk. I served all with wide noodles instead of potatoes which is the way I had schnitzel in Germany. The sauce made the dish, and the squeeze of lemon was the deciding "pop"!
I made the recipe as written with a few changes. I cut a 1/2 inch thick butterflied loin chop horizontally and pounded the meat. I had 4 thin slices that I tossed in the bread crumbs and browned in a skillet before adding to the crockpot. I used thin onion slices and used 2 thinly sliced Russets. I added garlic powder and fresh thyme leaves to the cream mixture. My husband loved the results but I think the dish still needed a flavor boost, perhaps dill or lemon or capers. The gorgonzola taste was nearly imperceptible. Mine took 4 hr in the crockpot. The ease of preparation and economical aspect of this recipe make it repeatable. I served a three bean salad in vinaigrette for the side. My husband asked for sauerkraut the next time.
Absolutely delicious! Highly recommended. I stuck pretty much with the original recipe. I added a little more spice, a teaspoon of garlic/pepper seasoning and a tad more heavy whipping cream since my tenderloin was about 1 1/4 pounds. I also followed a posters suggestion to add layers of a thinly sliced onion as well. Gotta tell ya ... this is a great dish.
Oh my God! What an amazing recipe. I made it exactly as written and couldn't be happier. This is honestly one of the best dishes I have ever eaten and I have had plenty at the age of 76. Don't change a thing!
WOW!! I had to use Italian bread crumbs and I used full cup of gorgonzola. I only had dried parsley too. Dang COVID! But my husband and I were amazed at the flavors. I was worried it may be too bland. I was happily wrong. Don't skimp on the lemon wedges...Just an extra pow to this dish. This recipe goes in my favorites file for sure. Easy Pleasy.
Very disappointed. No correlation at all to schnitzel, way too much potato, and no real flavor beyond the Gorgonzola. Will definitely NOT make this again.
Honestly wasn’t my favorite. It did have a lot of flavor but i wasn’t a fan of how the breadcrumbs come out in a slow cooker.
I love the premise of this recipe. But I made so many changes that i cant review the original recipe. But the premise deserves 5 or more stars. If you would like to know, thanks to,Covid 19 I wasn't able to get plain breadcrumbs so I had to use Italian breadcrumbs. Additionally I wasn't able to get heavy cream so I had to use half and half. And there were no Yukon Gold potatoes so i used red potatoes unpeeled. Additionally I used blue cheese instead of gorgonzola. I will make this recipe like this from now on even if I can get all the original ingredients after Covid 19 moves on. Because it was fabulous this way.
I added a couple layers of sliced onion and thyme to the cream. After reading other reviews I also used garlic powder after it was assembled.
