Method

  1. Stretch a piece of cling film over a chopping board, lay the steaks on top of it, then put another piece of cling film on top. Use a rolling pin to bash the steaks until they are really flat and thin.

  2. Mix the flour and paprika with some salt and pepper on a plate. Put the egg and breadcrumbs on two more plates, then dip the steaks into the flour first, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs.

  3. Heat 1 tsp of butter and 1 tsp of oil in a large frying pan, then cook one of the schnitzels for about 1 min on each side until the breadcrumbs are golden and crispy. Repeat Step 3 for the other schnitzels. Serve with lemon wedges, salad and coleslaw, if you like.

My OH was so excited for this meal and it didn't disappoint. Mine actually even looked better than the photo this time which doesn't usually happen! Its so easy to make but still turns out great. Next time I would add less butter/ oil though.
