Instructions Of Veal Milanese

  • Prepare your dishes for breading – beat your eggs in a shallow bowl, add flour and bread crumbs to two separate plates.
  • Season your veal cutlets with salt and pepper.
  • Bread all your cutlets – start with flour (shake off the excess), then the egg, and then the breadcrumbs, then set aside.
  • Preheat your oven to a very low temperature of 200F to keep your cooked veal cutlets warm until you finish up all frying.
  • Preheat your cast-iron skillet until hot, add the clarified butter or oil and let it heat up until hot (about 375 F).
  • Fry your veal cutlets in batches for about 3-4 minutes per side (don’t overcrowd the pan as the oil will lose its temperature and the cutlets can get soggy).
  • Remove cooked cutlets onto a rack with baking sheet and place in the oven to keep them warm.
  • Once all your veal cutlets are fried, place them on a serving plate with lemon wedges and serve.
