Thin-Sliced Breaded Top Round Cutlets (Milanesa)

Milanesa Steak is a budget-friendly meal of thin-sliced breaded top round cutlets. This quick and easy recipe is one you'll want to make often.
  • 1-1 1/2 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® top round steaks, thinly sliced to 1/8 – 1/4-inch
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed (or minced and smashed with side of knife)
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • Oil for frying
  1. Lightly pound top round steaks to tenderize and create uniform 1/8-inch thick cutlets. Lay steaks on a sheet pan and season on both sides with half the salt and pepper. Place breadcrumbs in casserole pan and mixed with the other half of salt and pepper. In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs with the garlic.
  2. Fill a high-sided skillet with about 1/2-inch of oil and heat over medium-high heat (360°F).
  3. Dust steaks with flour, dip in eggs and then into breadcrumbs. Make sure steaks are fully coated, pressing into breadcrumbs if necessary.
  4. Fry on each side for 2 - 3 minutes or until golden brown. Set on cooling rack or plate with paper towels to avoid excess oil.
