Healthy Beef Schnitzel

Healthy Beef Schnitzel

INGREDIENTS

1 egg beaten with 2 tbsp water 

2-3 cups breadcrumbs

For the breadcrumbs, use bread that is 2-3 days old. Use a food processor to make into crumbs or use a packet of fine breadcrumbs 

1 tbsp parsley

Add 1 teaspoon of chopped thyme to the crumb mixture for extra flavour.

A dash of olive oil

 

TO SERVE

Cherry tomato

Just before serving, dress tomatoes, beans and sugar snap peas with a vinaigrette to which you have added 1 finely chopped shallot.

200g sliced green bean

150g snap peas

New potatoes

Boil small new potatoes in plenty of lightly salted water. Drain well. Cut potatoes in half, or into thick slices and place on a hot chargrill to colour. Only use a little oil if they are sticking. This is a good way of using up leftover potatoes.

TO CRUMB 

  1. Place the flour, the egg mixture and the breadcrumbs in separate shallow bowls.
  2. Stir chopped parsley through the bowl of breadcrumbs.
  3. Coat a piece of schnitzel in the flour, shaking off the excess.
  4. Dip in the egg mixture until it is well coated then place into the breadcrumbs.
  5. Gently pat down on each side, ensuring that it is well coated.
  6. Place on a tray and repeat with the remaining schnitzel.
  7. Heat a frying pan over medium heat then add enough oil just to cover the base of the pan.
  8. As soon as the oil is hot, add beef schnitzel (in batches if necessary) and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  9. Drain on kitchen paper and season.
