In a separate bowl mix 2tbsp flour and either 2tbsp cream or water.
Add flour mix to sauce, stirring completely to avoid lumps. Finish with psalter, pepper and herbs.
To begin cutlets, heat the butter or oil in a pan (2 tbsp, or 1cm thick).
Cover cutlets with wax paper, Saran Wrap, etc, and gently pound with meat tenderizer hammer or cup until you acheive an even 1/4 inch thickness throughout them all.
Make 3 bowls: one with flour, salt, pepper, and any other dry ingredients (such as garlic powder, etc), one with 2eggs and 2 tbsp water mixed, and one with breadcrumbs or corn flake crumbs.
Coat each cutlet in flour, shake off excess. Then dip in egg wash, followed by pressing onto bread crumbs to create the crust.
Fry 2 at a time, for approximately 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and meat cooked inside. Dry each with paper towel after. Serve topped with sauce.
Make extra to keep in the fridge. Excellent for quick sandwiches, breakfast and eggs, etc.
