  • 4 Certified Angus Beef ® top round steaks, 4 ounces each, pounded to 1/2- inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups finely crushed club crackers
  • 1 bottle Spray oil
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese, 1/4 inch thick
  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions, sauté 5 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and 1/2-teaspoon salt; sauté 5 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Season steaks with 1-teaspoon salt and 1/2-teaspoon pepper.
  3. Arrange three bowls: 1) flour seasoned with remaining 1/2-teaspoon salt and remaining 1/2-teaspoon pepper, 2) milk and egg, 3) cracker crumbs. Dredge beef in seasoned flour, then egg wash, finally coat with cracker crumbs. Spray each cutlet evenly with spray oil.
  4. Set air fryer to 400°F. Working in two batches, place two breaded cutlets in air fryer; fry 6 minutes. Flip cutlets over; top each with 1/4 of the mushroom and onion mixture, top with two slices of Swiss cheese. Air fry 6 more minutes. Repeat with remaining 2 cutlets and ingredients.
