Skills needed: Basic

You will need:

Winter Creek Farm beef schnitzel bread crumbed

50g butter

2 tablespoons flour

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 cup milk

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

¼ cup chopped chives

Lemon wedges


How to cook Beef Schnitzel

Heat 1 cm of oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. When the oil is hot, add the schnitzels a couple at a time and cook until golden brown. Turn and cook the other side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and keep warm in the oven until serving.

Creamy Cheese Sauce

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat. Add the flour and garlic and cook, stirring for a few minutes until pale and frothy (not brown). Remove from the heat and slowly pour in the milk, whisking all the time to avoid lumps. Replace over a medium heat and simmer, stirring, for 5 minutes or until thickened. Add the cheese and mustard and simmer for a few minutes until melted and smooth. Season to taste and keep warm.

Drizzle the schnitzels with the sauce, sprinkle with chives and add a squeeze of lemon, and serve with your choice of steamed seasonal vegetables or salad.
