Step 1: You will need

  • 2 veal cutlets
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 ml vegetable oil
  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • Half a lemon, sliced
  • 150 g breadcrumbs
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 1 frying pan
  • 1 meat tenderiser or a heavy knife
  • 1 small mixing bowl
  • 2 plates
  • 1 fork

Step 2: Tenderise the veal

Pound the cutlets to a uniform thickness of about 3mm.

Step 3: Prepare the eggs

Beat the eggs well and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 4: Prepare the flour

Spread the flour out on a plate.

Step 5: Prepare the breadcrumbs

Spread the breadcrumbs on a different plate than the flour.

Step 6: Prepare the cutlets

Now it's time to get our cutlets dressed up. Firstly, we need to dip them in the flour and shake off any excess.

Step 7: Coat in egg

Dip the veal into to egg and give it a thorough coating.

Step 8: Coat in breadcrumbs

Finally, coat well in breadcrumbs, pressing the cutlet down to make sure it gets completely covered.

Step 9: Prepare frying pan for cutlets

Pour about 1/2 cm of oil in the pan and add a small knob of butter. Heat the oil to a moderate heat – if it starts smoking you've gone too far.

Step 10: Fry cutlets

Time to put the cutlets in the frying pan. You need to cook the cutlets for about one minute on each side until golden brown.

Step 11: Garnish

Place the slices of lemon on top of the veal.

Step 12: Serve

Serve with steamed new potatoes or other steamed vegetables and a lemony coleslaw. Serve and enjoy!
