Ingredients:

  • 1 kg Greenlea beef schnitzel
  • 1 kg plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder

Crumb

  • 1½ cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 Tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 4 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 4 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 Tbsp poppy seeds

Slaw

  • 2 shallots (sliced into thin rings)
  • 2 Tbsp flat parsley (roughly chopped)
  • 3 Tbsp dill (roughly chopped)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 4 Tbsp pickles
  • 2 Tbsp capers
  • ¼ green cabbage
  • 1 avocado
  • 100gm green beans
  • 1 stick celery

Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • 2 Tbsp chopped dill
  • ½ cup Tatua sour cream

Method

Dressing

In a small bowl combine all ingredients and season to taste.

Slaw

Blanch the green beans for 1 minute in boiling salted water, refresh in iced water, drain and split each bean lengthways, shred the cabbage as thinly as possible (we used a mandoline), place in a large bowl with beans.

Slice and rinse the shallots with cold water, drain well and add to the cabbage mixture along with the thinly sliced spring onion, dill, parsley, capers, pickles and chunks of avocado, lightly toss the salad together. Pour over half of the dressing and mix it in, only giving it a couple of turns as to not drown the slaw

Crumb

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.

Schnitzel

Mix together salt, pepper, onion powder and flour, in a large bowl.

Whisk together eggs and line up three bowls on your bench: one with flour mix, one with egg and one with seeded crumb Coat each schnitzel with the flour mix, then the egg and finally the seeded crumb mixture, try to avoid getting egg mix into the crumb as it will go lumpy and not coat evenly

The Schnitzel is now ready to cook. It can be pan fried over a medium to high heat for around 1½ minutes on each side, oven baked at 200⁰C for around 15 minutes until golden brown, or deep fried for 1½ minutes.

Serve with slaw and extra dill sauce on the side.

Note - I used McClure’s sweet and spicy pickles.
