Jägerschnitzel (“hunter's schnitzel”) is a fairly common German dish, pork schnitzel with a mushroom sauce. It's so German that I was surprised to discover that the sauce is French in origin (« sauce chasseur », or “hunter's sauce”). Not a bad idea for a change. Here's my recipe, based on a number of recipes from the web: this recipe, this overview and this recipe, none of which was overly convincing.
