Geschnetzeltes is a dish that is extremely popular in Zurich, the place where it originated, but is also popular throughout southern Germany. Traditionally, it is just veal, mushrooms, white wine, cream, and lemon. This is a variation on the traditional recipe.

1 lb boneless pork chops
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup white wine
1 cup beef broth
2 cups sliced mushrooms
3 tablespoons ground paprika
1 large onion (chopped)
3 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Slice the pork chops into thin strips and sauté in a pan with olive oil. Once the pork is done, remove it and set it aside in a bowl. Add the chopped onions, garlic, and mushrooms and sauté them until soft. 

Add the broth and the wine. Simmer the sauce until it has reduced halfway. (10-15 minutes)

Add the pork back to the pan. Add the heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of paprika. Heat for 5 minutes until warm. Serve over pasta of your choice.

Guten Appetit!
