The most famous steak in the world is undoubtedly the Viennese one. But no one knows where the idea to wrapped meat in breadcrumbs came. There is information that a similar recipe was used by the ancient Greeks but the first recorded mention, however, dates back many years later, in Italy. As such, schitzel is very popular in the Czech Republic. In many families it is a traditional Sunday lunch.
