Because who doesn't love schnitzel?!
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
4 sizzle or minute steaks
1/3 cup fine polenta meal
2 eggs, lightly whisked

1 tbsp finely chopped parsley leaves
2 tbsp olive oil
2 oxheart tomatoes, sliced
2 cups watercress sprigs, soaked in cold water
1 cup sauerkraut
2 tbsp whole egg mayonnaise
4 square ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
Chilli jam, to serve
Pour polenta onto a large plate. Place whisked eggs in a medium bowl and breadcrumbs on a large plate with parsley and seasoning. Dip steaks into polenta, then beaten egg, then crumb mixture.
Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, add oil then cook schnitzels for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Rest then slice in half.
Assemble rolls with mayo, chilli jam, tomato, watercress, kraut and schnitzel to serve.
You can freeze extra crumbed schnitzels. Just place in a ziplock bag as flat as possible and separate with pieces of baking paper
Kraut and Kimchi are fermented/pickled vegetables. They are delicious, tangy and great for you. Keep some in the fridge and add a little bit to your rice, sandwiches and salads.
Child-Proof Hacks to Uncomplicate School Lunches
February – that time of year where reality sets back in. When the kids are back to school, the family is settling into a routine for the new year, and the nighttime lunch box packing ritual begins. While it's great to have specific meals for the kids, it can often be time consuming (and expensive) to create exciting lunches for them and a whole different 'adult' lunch too.
To help everyone have tastier (and healthier) lunches, Australian Beef has shared a list of hacks to help parents easily create meals that adults and kids will enjoy. Whether the kids prefer a sandwich or like to mix things up, these hacks will help save time.
5 Hacks To Win The Lunch Box Game
Make leftovers work harder - Leftovers always work great for lunch the next day. If you cook up a tasty steak, stir-fried beef strips or bolognese, you can easily turn it into a sandwich or wrap, or can be added into a salad the next day.
Get wrapping - Wraps are great for the whole family and can be made in advance and even frozen! Just place your favourite fillings inside, wrap in plastic and pop in the freezer.
Prepare to freeze - Batch cooking will save time in the evening. If you're making a tasty quiche or frittata for lunches, make double and pop in the freezer for a lunch later in the week.
Keep the kids happy without cooking bland - If the kids aren't a fan of spice, then take their portions out of the pan before adding the extra herbs and spices - then everybody's happy!
Get the kids to lend a hand - Kids love to eat a meal they feel involved in. Get them to pick out their favourite fillings or toppings, and then you can always swap some out for more adultfriendly options afterwards. Making Sunday lunch prep a fun activity is also a great way to get kids excited about their lunch for the week.
