Veal cutlets are a simple way to make veal steaks just that extra bit special. Lightly cooked in butter and oil and topped with lemon completes this tasty dish. This dish goes well with lots of different vegetables, pictured here with steamed balsamic green beans. We also love placing slices of bread into the pan after the veal has been cooked and the heat is off. Leave it in for 5 minutes and the bread becomes toasty and buttery.


  • 4 veal steaks – approx. 150g / 5oz, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg – beated
  • 8 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon – cut into wedges


  1. On a cutting board pound gently each veal steak with a meat mallet. Set aside on a plate.
  2. In a bowl place breadcrumbs and another bowl add cracked egg and beat with a fork.
  3. Coat a steak with egg by immersing.
  4. Next coat steak with breadcrumbs pushing the breadcrumbs firmly on to steak to cover.  Place on a plate.
  5. Repeat egg and breadcrumb steps for all steaks.
  6. Place plate with steaks into fridge for 5 minutes.
  7. In a large frying pan heat oil and butter on low to medium heat. 
  8. Allow butter to melt and sizzle before placing meat to cook.  Cook each side 1-2 minutes or to taste.
  9. Serve with lemon wedges and vegetables of choice.
