RECIPE: Wiener Schnitzel or Schnitzel from Vienna, Austria
By Chef Robert Graf owner Schnitzels & Giggles

  • 2 pieces of 5 or 6 oz each Boneless Porkloin Cutlets
  • Flour for dredging
  • 2 eggs & 2 Tablespoons of water beaten
  • Plain breadcrumbs, home made are best but store bought will be fine
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  • Canola Oil & Butter for frying
  • Lemon for Garnish
  1. With a mallet flatten the cutlet to just under ¼ inch thickness, cover cutlets with a piece of plastic wrap or a baggie while pounding. Season with salt and pepper
  2. Dredge the Veal in flour on both sides then dip floured veal through the egg mixture.
  3. Finally the veal goes into the breadcrumbs, bread on both sides.
  4. Gently shake off the excess breading, DO NOT PUSH IT DOWN!
  5. Fry in oil/butter mixture until golden on both sides, approximately 2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel. Keep warm on plate in the oven at about 200 degrees if you are making a bunch of them for a larger dinner party.
  6. Plate and garnish with a slice of lemon. Serve with Spätzle and red cabbage or Warm Potato Salad and home made whole Cranberry sauce.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
