While stationed with the U.S.A.F. in Germany, my wife, Mina and I walked a couple of miles once or twice each week to eat their delicious Jaegerschnitzel with Mushroom Sauce and French fries. The amazing thing about the chef(s) was that the food always tasted EXACTLY the same. We could tell that they did not allow the cooking oil to get old, the seasoning was perfect and the meal was prepared in a wonderful atmosphere. I am looking forward to attempting to duplicate their work while using this recipe. Thanks Heidi234 for this opportunity to do so. JCRichmond
