Polish Schnitzel ‘Kotlet Mielony’ Recipe

Polish Schnitzel [sznycel, kotlet mielony] is a traditional Polish main course. Polish Schnitzel is not what most of you think it is 🙂 Polish schnitzel is a mix of 3 ground meats (pork+veal+beef) with some other ingredients and spices which is breaded and fried.

In the below video recipe, I will show how to make the perfect one:

-1lb Ground Meat (mix of veal+pork+beef is best)
-Onion (1 slice of a big Spanish one)
-Green Onions
-1 Egg
-2 tbsp Ketchup or Tomato Paste
-1/3 cup Bread Crumbs
-Salt, Pepper

-Bread Crumbs for breading
-Oil for frying

Schnitzel is usually served with hot and cold side dish. I always eat it with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut salad.

  1. Make your mashed potato with whatever ingredients you normally use.
    Add Celery Root in amount of 1/3 of the potatoes.

    Peel off root ball clean and dice in 3/4 inch chunks, boil this mixed in with the potato chunks.

    Finish the boiled mix as you normally do.

    For those who love onions, chop 1 Vidalia with food processor and saute in little butter until near light brown and add to the mashed potato / cellery root mix.
