Biggest ... Schnitzel ... ever !!!

Everyone knows, we love Schnitzel in Germany and Austria and there have been many restaurants claiming to have the biggest Schnitzels available.

The guy in the movie knows he's making the biggest Schnitzels and he's proving it. In his restaurant you can order a Schnitzel with 1 Meter (40 inches) diameter straight off the menu, but he's going for a real record.

The movie shows him selecting a pig with the right length to maximize the size of the meat, getting a frying-pan big enough and of course, preparing and cooking the 160-cm-world-record-Schnitzel (63 inches).

Sorry, the audio is german, but those pictures speak for themselves:

Wow... that lady running the show looked like she was working pretty hard... hahah...

So any Germans out there like to give a rough translation? I get the general idea, but need to know how big the Schnitzel was, how heavy, etc...

Rough Translation: Friedel and Hilde own a well-known Schnitzel restaurant "Drei Linden" near Nuremburg. From media they know that many restaurants claim they offer the world's biggest Schnitzel. They want to proof that the others are wrong so they decide to make really the world's biggest Schnitzel. Actually they offer one 1m diameter (40 inch) with 8 kg (17 pounds) on their menu. But that's not enough. After they've found a right-sized pig they need a very big pan. As a result they create a 1.6m (over 60 inch) and 20 kg (44 pund) monster Schnitzel.

I live about 6km from this restaurant, and its great! you get the normal schnitzel (about 1kg) or the cordon bleu for 10 euros, and multiple times over the year there are specials like shark, crocodile or python for example.
