Cutlets in cheese sauce

Cutlets is an absolutely classic dish of homemade Russian cuisine. From time to time I want them very much. To avoid repetitions, I created such recipe. The cutlets will be juicy and tender. Try.  
Cooking time — 45 min
Complication — simply
Main ingridient: beef
Category: meat dishes
Kitchen: home, russian
Cause: for children, for every day
Preparation: fry, bake



  • Mince beef – 800 g;
  • Loaf – big top-crust (70 g);
  • Onion – 2 small or 1 big;
  • Milk – ½ glass;
  • Egg – 1 pc;
  • Paprika – 1 tea spoon;
  • Chili – ½ tea spoon;
  • Fresh ground black pepper – 1 tea spoon;
  • Dry garlic – 1 tea spoon;
  • Dry Provencal herbs – 1 tea spoon; 
  • Salt – a pinch; 
  • Processed cheese spread with mushrooms – ½ glass;
  • Hot water – 400 g;
  • Dill – a bunch;
  • Oil for frying.    

Step 1

Chop the onion into fine cubes.

Step 2

Heat over a couple of table spoons of oil on a frying pan and put the onion there. Parboil on average heat for 2-3 minutes until light brown colour. Add chili and paprika close to the end. If children are expected to eat, do not add chili.

Step 3

Put pieces of loaf into the blender bowl and pour with milk.

Step 4

Put fried onion there. It gets a very nice colour from paprika. Blend all with a blender if you have prepared the mince beef in advance like me. If you prepare it using a mincing machine, mince the loaf soaked with milk and onion there also.

Step 5

Put the egg and onion & loaf mass into the mince beef. Stir up well.

Step 6

Then add dry herbs, garlic and salt with black pepper. Stir up thoroughly.

Step 7

Heat over the oil on a frying pan. Shape the cutlets with wet hands and put to fry. I never coat my cutlets. They are perfectly fried like this without extra flour and/or dry bread. The heat should be quite strong as we need to seal cutlets with crust, while they will be finely stewed with sauce in the oven.

Step 8

Turn them over after 3 minutes and fry the same time from the other side.

Step 9

When the cutlets are ready, put them into a baking pan. I had 14 cutlets.

Step 10

Chop the dill without stalks.

Step 11

Pour hot water from the kettle to a bowl, put cheese there and put on heat. Stir up until cheese gets melted, add dill. Once it starts boiling, switch off.

Step 12

Pour cutlets with a sauce and put into the oven pre-heated until 180 degrees for 20 minutes.

Step 13

Serve with your favourite side dish. I like with noodles or buckwheat.

Bon appetite!
