We bake cutlets in the oven - tasty and healthy!

Cutlet is one of the most common dishes that are prepared at home, in cafes and restaurants. Initially, the cutlet was not a Russian dish, but in Russia it was borrowed from France.

In Europe, a cutlet is called a piece of meat with a rib bone. The word comes from the French "cotelette", which appeared from "cote", which means a rib. In Russia, a chop is called minced meat, formed into small oval cakes. Products are prepared in a pan, steamed, in the oven, in the microwave, on the grill.

There are a lot of minced meat options. The basis is taken from the meat of mammals, poultry, fish, vegetables, cereals and more - everything that can be chopped.

Baking preparation

Minced meat is best cooked at home. It is recommended to mix the prepared base thoroughly. It is advisable to keep the meat for 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator before forming the cutlets.

Bread must be taken stale, which absorbs and holds all the juices. When using fresh rolls, the quality of the products deteriorates. Bread (loaf) is soaked in cold milk, water, broth. The amount is taken in a ratio of 20-25% of the volume of meat.

Pay attention to the choice of meat. Pork is suitable with streaks of fat. From beef it is better to choose sirloin, shoulder blade, neck, thick edge. The principle works here: pork should be with fat, and beef or veal - more lean.

Onions are suitable in raw and fried form. When grinding it in a meat grinder, a lot of juice is formed. In all recipes, preheat the oven to 200 ° C, and bake at 180 ° C.
