An easy and quick recipe for juicy, flavorful beef cutlets served with a creamy and aromatic mushroom gravy! You’ll fall in love with this recipe from the very first bite! I love to serve these cutlets with wide egg noodles or creamy mashed potatoes. Either way, get ready to receive plenty of compliments!
I always use this recipe and only this recipe for beef cutlets because these are unbelievably juicy! I use 80% lean beef and that additional fat adds both flavor and moisture. The secret to these juicy cutlets is onion puree! It adds so much flavor and also tons of juice. My other secret ingredient is soaked baguette or bread! I use a chunk of day-old baguette soaked in water. The bread does a few things – makes the cutlets lighter and fluffier and adds more moisture!
This recipe has been in my family for generations, literally! It just one of those classic recipes that sticks around forever because it’s delicious and quick to make. My mom would make a variety cutlets for our family all the time, using beef such as in this recipe or pork, chicken and even fish. She would serve the cutlets plain or make with this incredible mushroom gravy. It’s made with loads of mushrooms, onion, carrots, garlic and of course, dill! You can’t have an Eastern European dish without dill!
