In Argentina in the early 1900s a pizzeria owner created a special kind of Milanesa and it quickly became adopted as a specialty dish. Milanesa is basically breaded meat, and in this dish it is a high protein pizza crust. this is a really easy dish that sounds pretty fancy but just tastes like comfort food.
Go to your meat department and look for thin cut meat. I chose beef, but you can use chicken or pork as well. I got over a pound and it served ten. Considering the only other item i didn’t already have on hand was Marinara sauce, this served ten for about ten dollars. A DOLLAR a plate?! Fantastic.
*One slice of thin cut beef per person. (You can use chicken or pork as well.)
*Start with 3 eggs whisked with about 1 T. Oregano in a large, flat dish
*In a separate large, flat dish, combine 2 C. Bread Crumbs, 1/2 T of crushed Garlic,
and 1/4 C Parmesan Cheese.
*heat skillet with 1-2 T of Olive Oil per steak
*Dip meat in egg to thoroughly coat.
*Then, toss in the bread crumb mixture, making sure there is a healthy layer over the egg.
*Place carefully on the hot skillet and cook on medium heat for a few minutes on each side until both sides are a golden brown and crisp.
*Turn on your broiler.
*When each steak is done, place it on a cookie sheet and top with deli sliced ham or
*spoon a layer of sauce over the meat. (the recipe I started with called for straight tomato sauce. I chose my favorite bottled Marinara instead.)
*Add a layer of Mozzerella cheese and broil until bubbly.
Pull out and serve!
I think I’ll try just cheese next time.
