Preparation time 20 mins
Cooking time 25 mins
4 x 150g beef round steaks, cut in half horizontally
½ cup (75g) plain flour, seasoned with sea salt and pepper
2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (70g) panko breadcrumbs
2 tsp fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
4 cobs corn, husks removed
¼ cup (20g) finely grated parmesan cheese
Rice bran oil, to shallow fry
1 granny smith apple, cored, quartered, cut into matchsticks
¼ green cabbage, finely shredded
2 green onions, thinly sliced
4 radish, thinly sliced into matchsticks
1 carrot, coarsely grated
1 tbsp finely shredded mint leaves + extra mint sprigs, to serve
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp whole egg mayonnaise
Lemon wedges, to serve
Using a meat mallet or rolling pin gently pound the steaks until approximately 5mm thick. Place the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs in 3 separate large shallow bowls. Add the rosemary to the breadcrumbs and season with sea salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Dip each schnitzel in the flour to coat, followed by the egg wash, then the breadcrumbs, pressing to coat. Set aside on a plate.
Heat a char-grill pan over medium-high heat and cook corn for 10 minutes, turning often, until charred. Sprinkle with parmesan and season.
Meanwhile, add enough oil to a large non-stick frying pan to come 1cm up the side and heat over medium heat. Cook the schnitzels, in batches, for 2 minutes each side or until lightly golden. Transfer to a board lined with kitchen paper. Repeat with remaining schnitzels.
In a medium bowl combine apple, cabbage, onions, radish, carrot, mint, lemon juice and mayonnaise. Season.
Serve the schnitzels with corn, coleslaw, extra mint sprigs and lemon wedges.
You could serve the schnitzels with cauliflower, sweet potato or pumpkin mash.
For a spicy twist, add 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning to the flour before coating the schnitzels.
You can use any combination of herbs that you like in the breadcrumb mixture – thyme or sage is delicious.
