The Goan Beef Cutlet Recipe is a spiced version of a German Schnitzel and Chicken Fried Steak and the coating is cream of wheat/ semolina/rava. I love these cutlets. We used to make sandwiches with the leftovers as a quick snack. Beef, fish and pork is consumed a lot in a christian household in Goa. Every time I think of a new recipe for my blog it always has to do something with beef πŸ™‚ .

A pattie made with ground beef is called as AlmΓ΄ndegas for a Goan cutlet only sliced beef that is tenderized is used. I usedΒ  Chuck Steak to make this recipe but I wouldn’t recommend as it was way too chewy. Sharing my families recipe with you.
