Cotoletta milanese (Milan-style schnitzel)

Serves Icon
Time 20 Minutes
  • 4 slices of veal (approximately 120g each)
  • 250g clarified butter - see note in step 2
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g dried breadcrumbs
  • Lemon wedges, to serve
  • Sea salt

How to Make It
Step 1

Season the veal steaks with sea salt to taste. Place the breadcrumbs in a bowl. Use a fork to lightly whisk the eggs in a separate shallow bowl. Dip one of the veal steaks in the egg mixture, then coat in breadcrumbs. Place the cotoletta (crumbed veal) onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining cotolette.

Step 2

Heat half of the clarified butter in a non-stick frying pan over low-medium heat. Cook the crumbed veal, 2 at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Heat the remaining clarified butter and cook the remaining veal.

Note: You can make your own clarified butter or buy it in supermarkets.

Step 3

Serve the Cotoletta milanese (Milan-style schnitzel) with lemon wedges – buon appetito!
