Baking your cutlets is a healthier alternative to frying, and it’s just as tasty. Whether you’re a seasoned cook or a beginner, this recipe is simple and straightforward.
With just a few ingredients and some basic kitchen tools, you’ll have a mouthwatering meal in no time. So, let’s get started and learn how to make beef cutlets in the oven!
How To Make Beef Cutlet In Oven?
To start, preheat your oven to 180°C. While the oven is heating up, prepare your beef cutlets.
Take some ground beef and mix it with chopped onions, green chillies, ginger-garlic paste, fennel powder, pepper powder, and garam masala. Cook the mixture until the beef is done and the mixture is dry.
Once the beef mixture has cooled down, peel and mash some potatoes and add them to the mixture. Mix everything well and add salt and pepper powder if needed.
Next, make round balls out of the mixture and roll them into oval or desired shapes. Beat an egg in a bowl and dip each cutlet in the egg, then roll it in breadcrumbs.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the cutlets on it. Drizzle some oil over the cutlets and bake them in the preheated oven for 10 minutes on each side.
After 20 minutes of baking, rotate the baking tray halfway through to ensure even cooking. Bake until the edges are crisp and the tops are golden brown.

Preparing The Beef Cutlets
To prepare the beef cutlets, start by grating some onions into a large bowl. You can also use a food processor to make this step easier. Add ground beef, an egg, and season with salt, pepper, and any desired spices.
Soak some bread in a bowl of water and squeeze out any excess water if necessary. Add the bread to the bowl with the beef mixture and mix everything together using your hands until a uniform mixture forms.
Use a measuring scoop to portion the mixture into cutlet-sized portions. Place some panko breadcrumbs into a small bowl and press each cutlet into a flat oval shape before dropping it into the breadcrumbs. Coat the cutlets well all over with the breadcrumbs.
Preheat a large frying pan with some olive oil over medium heat. Add the cutlets to the pan, spacing them out evenly to avoid overcrowding. Cook the cutlets in batches if necessary. Fry them for 4 to 6 minutes on each side until they are golden brown.
Make sure that the cutlets cook all the way through by checking their internal temperature with a meat thermometer. It needs to reach 160°F for safe consumption. Remove the cutlets onto a tray lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil and keep them warm until ready to serve.
Coating The Cutlets
Coating the cutlets is an important step in making beef cutlets in the oven. To start, dredge each cutlet in flour and shake off the excess. This will help the egg wash and breadcrumbs stick to the meat.
In a separate bowl, beat one or two eggs depending on how many cutlets you are making. Dip each cutlet into the egg wash, making sure both sides are coated.
Next, place some breadcrumbs on a plate and coat each cutlet on both sides with the breadcrumbs. Be sure to press the breadcrumbs into the meat to ensure they stick well.
For a lighter and crispier crust, try using panko breadcrumbs instead of regular breadcrumbs.
Once all the cutlets are coated, place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Drizzle some oil over the cutlets to help them brown evenly in the oven.
Bake the cutlets in a preheated 180°C oven for 10 minutes on each side. Halfway through cooking, rotate the baking tray to ensure even browning on all sides.
When done, remove the beef cutlets from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy your delicious homemade beef cutlets!
Baking The Cutlets In The Oven
Now that you have prepared your beef cutlets, it’s time to bake them in the oven. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Place the cutlets on the tray, making sure to leave some space between each one so they cook evenly. Drizzle some oil over the cutlets to help them crisp up in the oven.
Bake the cutlets for 10 minutes on one side, then flip them over and bake for another 10 minutes on the other side. After 20 minutes of baking, rotate the tray halfway through to ensure even cooking.
Keep an eye on the cutlets as they bake, and remove them from the oven once the edges are crisp and the tops are golden brown. You can test if they are done by inserting a meat thermometer into the center of a cutlet – it should read at least 71°C.
Once the beef cutlets are done baking, take them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. They pair well with a side of mashed potatoes or a fresh salad. Enjoy!
Serving And Enjoying Your Beef Cutlets
Now that your beef cutlets are ready, it’s time to serve and enjoy them. You can serve them hot as a main dish or as a snack with your favorite dipping sauce.
To make a complete meal, you can serve the beef cutlets with some mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables on the side. You can also add some greens like a salad or steamed broccoli to balance out the flavors.
If you’re serving the beef cutlets as a snack, you can pair them with some ketchup or a spicy dipping sauce. You can also serve them with some green chutney sandwiches for a unique and delicious flavor combination.
When serving, make sure to let the beef cutlets rest for a few minutes before cutting into them. This will help the juices settle and keep them moist and tender.
Enjoy your homemade beef cutlets with family and friends, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different spices and flavors to make them your own.
