Dutch Schnitzel in the Czech & Slovak Cooking Series? Of course! The reason this dish is referred to as “Dutch” for that the gouda cheese originated in Holland, but rest assured that this is a totally Czech and Slovak meal. Dutch Schnitzel, or “Holandský řízek” in Czech, is a combination of delicious pork meat with shredded cheese, herbs, and other ingredients, all of which are breaded and fried for a flavorful meal you will not be able to get enough of. We will be frying it in Ghee (clarified butter) or “přepuštěné máslo” in Czech to give the meal a nice, buttery flavor (the preparation of Ghee will be part of this lesson). As a side, we are going to prepare perfect and creamy mashed potatoes.
Not suitable for vegetarians.
