Jaeger Schniztel by Momma Cupcake

- 16 oz mushrooms
- thyme, bay leaf, parsley
- 2 cups red wine

Season the meat with salt and pepper, dip the pieces in the flour mixture (flour, chives, dill, pepper), and shake off excess.
In a heavy saute pan, heat 2 ounces of olive oil over high heat. Sear both sides of the meat until golden. Remove meat and set aside.
