The American perspective: Things you didn’t know were German.
CHICKEN FRIED STEAK
This concoction stemming from Texas was first cooked up by German or Austrian immigrants, based on the original recipes of Wiener Schnitzel (which is usually veal rather than chicken but veal isn’t common in the US). Apparently, it started being referred to as Chicken Fried Steak instead of Wiener Schnitzel when the US entered the war with Germany. (P.S.: Hitler was Austrian.)
According to the US Census Bureau, at least 50 out of 300+ million Americans are of German descent. German immigration to the Americas began in the 17th century and peaked in the late 19th. Germans brought their foods, beverages, and cooking techniques to the many places where they settled, such as St. Louis, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, and central Texas. The German origin of many American dishes has been forgotten mostly due to anti-German sentiments following the World Wars. Other popular dishes with German origins include: hamburgers, frankfurters (hot dogs), egg noodles, liverwurst, knackwurst, bratwurst, bbq, sauerkraut, black forest cake, jelly donuts, and potato salad, among other things. Germans also introduced the beer-making technique called lagering and developed some of the most popular brands of American beer including Busch, Pabst, Schiltz, Budweiser, and Stroh.
