Metric

Recipe in here for German dishes called for 500g of pork schnitzel. Does anyone know how much and what this is? When I go to the store, if the person I asked doesn't know they ask around until they come up with reasonable response. Rather than making them more upset about their work, could I just ask someone here? I even wrote the editor of our local paper and she said go to Google but I had time trying to figure the amount. I must admit I did try to find out before asking you.

500g is about 1.1 lb - we don't work in cups in the UK or Europe.


I know that one of the mods kindly put conversion charts on a few of the fora on here, I think there's one on the dessert and/or meat sections.

schnitzel is a pounded steak as you would for veal or chicken piccata

A pork tenderloin is perfect for this dish. It's about the right weight and very tender. I slice the tenderloin into 1/2" to 3/4" slices then pound then into scallopine.

scallopine?

Not sure of what that is, but will check dictionary. About how long does it take you to make scallopine?

A scallopine is just the pounded out slices of pork. You flatten them out like you would a veal cutlet.
