Seeds, schnitzel and the Friday List


We are celebrating spring this week with a plant-a-thon. And while I'll admit my thumbs are practically black,  have high hopes of good crops this summer so have enlisted my friend Alice to help make it happen. 

For dinner tonight we had venison schnitzel with coriander crust and sesame stir fried veggies. It was just beautiful and if anyone in the Orange area is inspired to try something similar, please come and see us at the Orange Region Farmers Market tomorrow. We'll have heaps of steaks plus our new pies, loads of other cuts and of course this recipe (also here below). See you there!

In the meantime, here, after a two-week break, is today's Friday List. Have a great weekend.

Venison Schnitzel with coriander crust

1/2 loaf of sourdough bread, torn into pieces
1/2 bunch coriander
2 eggs
1 x 500g packet Mandagery Creek Venison steaks (whootwhoo)
Vegetable oil

Blitz sourdough bread and coriander in a food processor until you have a fine crumb. Whisk the eggs together in a large bowl. Slice the steaks through their middles so you have a few nice thin escalopes, dip these into the eggs then press into the breadcrumbs and set aside.  Heat the vetetable oil over medium and cook schnitzel for a couple of minutes on each side. Serve with vegetables stir-fried with ginger, sesame and soy sauce.
