The Meat Club Rib Eye Schnitzel
Schnitzel made with Rib Eye from The meat Club or cotoletta as we call it in our family, is a favourite with both the kids and Papa. Like all parent’s, we are constantly ensuring our families have a balanced diet, and getting meat into little ones can be challenging. Meat can often be tough for children to digest, so I’ve figured out an easy way to make any cut of meat tender. You may think I’m crazy, but I marinate Rib Eye and other cuts in milk first, the difference in incredible. It’s so tender, making it easy for children to eat.
As opposed to the more traditional chicken schnitzel, I’ve made delicious schnitzel with Rib Eye from The Meat Club. You may think it’s criminal to use an expensive cut of meat for schnitzel, but my theory is, if you give your family the best quality that you can afford there will be no waste and they will love it.
Schnitzel’s are a great meal to prepare in advance, and if you have made it with fresh Rib Eye, then you can easily freeze them for an emergency meal. Here is a simple recipe that will feed the entire family.
Servings: 4 people
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 packet of The Meat Club Scott Fillet
150ml fresh milk
Plain flour for dusting
2 cups breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper
flour for dusting
olive oil and 1 knob of butter for frying
1 lemon, cut into wedges to serve
Slice The Meat Club Rib Eye into thin slices, then flatten with a meat tenderiser. Pour the milk into a bowl and add the meat, ensuring it’s all covered. Cover and leave to tenderise in the fridge for up to 1 hour.
Mix together the parmesan, breadcrumbs, parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Remove the meat from the milk and shake off any excess, dip in flour, then into the beaten egg. Press the Rib Eye into the crumb mix, ensuring an even coating.
In a wide based non-stick frying pan, heat enough olive oil to cover the base and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the Rib Eye, ensuring you do not over crowd the pan. Cook over medium heat until golden brown on both sides (about two minutes each side).
To serve, simply add a fresh green salad and fresh lemon wedges.
