PORK SCHNITZELS WITH CREAM OF MUSHROOM SAUCE
Ingredients for 4 persons
4 pork schnitzels from the loin (à ca. 180 g)
10 dried mushrooms (e.g. dried porcini, shiitake or mixed dried mushrooms)
90 ml Vegami
500 g mushrooms
40 g butter
150 ml white wine
200 ml whipping cream
1 bunch of sage
A few cranberries
1. Salt the schnitzels and put to one side. Boil the dried mushrooms in 300 ml water
for 5 minutes in a pan; season with Vegami. Clean the mushrooms and cut into (thicker) slices. Fry in 2 tablespoons of hot oil until brown. Allow any escaping water to evaporate and continue to fry. Keep warm on a plate.
2. Peel the shallots, dice and fry in the butter in the mushroom pan until glassy. Deglaze with white wine and boil until the liquid has almost evaporated.
Pour the Vegami mushroom stock through a sieve and add to the mushrooms. (The dried mushrooms can be discarded.) Thicken for 6-8 minutes.
Add the whipping cream and continue to thicken for 4-6 minutes and add salt.
Add the mushrooms to the pan.
3. Fry the pork schnitzels in a fresh pan on each side in 4 tablespoons of oil for 2-3 minutes. Deep fry the sage leaves in small portions for a few seconds in hot oil in a saucepan.
Drain on kitchen paper and add salt. Serve the schnitzels on preheated plates with the sauce. Sprinkle with sage leaves, and decorate with cranberries.
Serve with French fries or pasta.
