Method

Prepare the cutlets by trimming to a neat uniform shape. Beat them with a cutlet bat or rolling-pin. Then season with salt and pepper and cook either by grilling, or by frying in smoking hot oil or fat, or by braising. Grilling or frying are more simple methods, but braising is recommended because of the fine flavour imparted by this method of cooking. Press between 2 dishes with a weight on to
