I’m always making chicken schnitzel but last week took out tenderized steak so opted for Beef Schnitzel instead which I served with Zucchini and Potato Ratatouille (which was an amazing hit surprisingly) and Egg Fried Rice.
600 gr tenderized steak
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp BBQ spice
1 tsp Texan steak spice
Pinch of bicarbonate of soda
(mix the spices together in a bowl, add steaks and coat evenly)
Arrange 3 bowls with 2 beaten eggs, splash of milk, salt and pepper.
The second bowl with 2 cups flour salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
The third bowl with 2 cups panko breadcrumbs or fresh, likewise seasoned.
Oil for frying.
Coat the steaks in flour, shake off excess, then egg, then press into the breadcrumbs. Set aside for half an hour then shallow fry 3-5 minutes a side till golden.
Egg Fried Rice
½ cup frozen peas
¼ cup diced frozen carrots
2 ½ cups cooked rice (preferably day before)
