Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium egg
  • 30 g parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 30 g almond flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp ground oregano
  • ½ tsp chilli powder (optional)
  • 30 g butter, or ghee (for frying)
  • 350 g beef steaks, thin-minute

Instructions
 

  • Whisk the egg in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Combine in another large bowl the parmesan, almond flour, salt, pepper, cumin, onion and garlic powder, sweet paprika, oregano, and chili powder (if you dare!) and mix well.
  • Dip the beef steaks into the egg, coating all sides, and allow the excess to drip off.
  • Dip the egg-washed steak in the dry spice mixture, making sure you cover all sides, and repeat until all the steaks are coated.
  • Heat half the butter or ghee in a shallow frypan on medium heat. Add half of the coated schnitzels to the pan and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes until golden. Remove and set aside on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. 
  • Add the rest of the butter to the pan and fry the remaining schnitzels, then remove and place on a paper towel for 2 minutes.
  • Serve with a green salad or simply some rocket with a squeeze of lemon juice.
