Ingredients

Lean veal leg steak

500 g, (buy 4x125g), not crumbed

Breadcrumbs

cup(s), (80g)

Eggplant

400 g, thinly sliced

Tomato pasta sauce

cup(s), (80ml)

Reduced-fat 15% cheddar cheese

4 slice(s)

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Use a meat mallet to pound veal to 5mm thickness. Spread dried breadcrumbs over a large plate and, working with one piece at a time, press veal into breadcrumbs to coat. Transfer to a large plate. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Add a quarter of the eggplant slices and cook for 3 minutes each side or until lightly browned. Transfer to a heatproof plate. Repeat with remaining eggplant slices.
  3. Lightly spray same pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add half the veal and cook for 2 minutes each side, then transfer to a baking tray. Repeat with remaining veal.
  4. Preheat grill on medium-high heat. Arrange eggplant on top of each piece of veal. Season with salt, then spread pasta sauce evenly over eggplant. Top with a slice of cheese, then grill for 1–2 minutes or until cheese melts. Season with freshly ground pepper and serve.
