One word english term for GESCHNETZELTES/ EMINCÉ?

Currently re-working/ re-translating a file for my english blog about GESCHNETZELTES, about what it is and the many variations of dishes of what one can do with this kind of meat.

It seems this is only described in english, but not properly named in one term.

What would you recommend for me to put into my file to make for easier reading instead of:

'meat cut in strips'*
'meat cut for stir frying'*
'schnitzel cut in stripes'*


The various online and my paper dictionaries couldn't help at all, the * is some of the translations they came up with .....

I think you would see it labelled in the UK as "diced". Although it's a long way off cubes, I know.



Edit: Here you go...

Maybe "XX cut into thin strips" or "XX thinly sliced" - US/Canadian

If you write diced - a US/Canadian would typically cube (dice) it

I'd put diced beef in a stew, but not in a stir fry.

I've never seen meat sliced like that in a UK supermarket, only diced.

When I look at recipes, they tend to say "steak" in the ingredients, then in the method to slice it thinly.

Or search for pictures of shredded mean, say shredded chicken, and see if that suits. Common term in North America. Generally not neatly cut.

Yep, I ran the "sliced" pork through google and looked at the images and it just shows slices of cuts like belly or fillet, for example.

"Diced" gives images of the cubed cuts.

I think that finely shredded (?) cut doesn't exist as a specific product in the UK, or maybe as a sort of "off-cut" you can request.

I notice that pulled pork has just started creeping into the food vocabulary in the UK but that's only after it has been cooked.

I don't think diced is the right word at all as most people would interpret that as cubed.

There isn't really a one word term for in in English and I think it would be better to use a longer more descriptive term rather than a single word innacurate one.

Thinly sliced strips seems to be the best description to me.

Shredded is meat that has been cooked a long time, and then shredded.

TOTALLY wrong!

Re: One word english term for GESCHNETZELTES/ EMINCÉ?

I think "thin sliced", or even just "sliced" and then a specification of the size, or just describe it in detail: 1/2"x3/8" sliced with the grain.

Re: One word english term for GESCHNETZELTES/ EMINCÉ?

Shredded makes think of animal fodder or small soy protein shredded stuff. I'd say Swiss Goulash. But then, I am biased. Zurich Stew.

I can't believe I am actually posting on food, being all norovirused and trying to survive at uni. Ugh.

Re: One word english term for GESCHNETZELTES/ EMINCÉ?

Just look in Chinese or curry recipes. (Isn't Zurich Geschnetzeltes in fact a Curry?)

- thinly sliced
- cut into thin strips

It is a curry/goulash hybrid.
