    Serves: 10 

    • 2kg beef rump
    • 2 eggs
    • 3 tablespoons water
    • 500g dried breadcrumbs, or more as needed
    • 1 tablespoon garlic granules
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 40g grated Parmesan cheese
    • 120ml vegetable oil, or as needed

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Place the beef into the freezer for several hours, until very firm and almost frozen. Slice the beef about 3mm thick across the grain. You can also ask the butcher to slice it very thinly for you.
    2. Whisk the eggs and water together in a bowl. Spread the breadcrumbs out onto a large sheet of aluminium foil, and sprinkle with garlic granules, salt and Parmesan cheese. Mix all the crumb ingredients together until well combined. Dip each piece of beef into the egg mixture, then thoroughly coat with crumbs. Place the coated slices onto a sheet of foil on a baking tray, and separate them with greaseproof paper as you dip and coat the beef.
    3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy frying pan until shimmering, and pan-fry the beef slices until golden brown, about 2 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the second side. Fry 2 or 3 slices per batch.

    I make this ALL the time! We've always called it 'breaded steaks', but it's the exact same thing. The only thing I do differently is buy the roast already cut into thin 'steaks' because my grocery store sells it like that and it makes life easier for me, lol. These are very good and I like to serve them either with pasta, lasagna, or stuffed shells or just with rice, or mashed potaotes and a salad and veggie. Definately give these a try, you won't be disappointed!  -  09 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a favorite here in Florida; in the Latin community it is called Bistec Empanizado, and served with rice and beans. I love it!!!!!!!!  -  11 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
