Hands down, this dish defines the very essence of German comfort food! Serve this German Geschnetzeltes over hot homemade Spätzle, with Semmelknödel or Kartoffelklösse, and get ready to fall in love! What is Geschnetzeltes? Geschnetzeltes (prounounced geh-shnet-sel-tess) is German for “sliced meat” and refers to a sauce consisting of sliced meat cooked in a creamy mushroom sauce. The meat is cooked in a skillet with butter or oil until browned, onions and mushrooms are sauteed, and cream and seasonings are added to make a sauce. The sauce is usually served with Spätzle, Semmelknödel, Kartoffelklöße, egg noodles or potatoes. It’s a quick and easy dish to make and is thoroughly delicious comfort food. Geschnetzeltes is a traditional and popular dish throughout Germany and Switzerland though there are differences between the two versions (more on that below).
