Cooking the perfect Low Carb Beef Schnitzel requires thinly sliced meat. If you can’t get your meat thinly sliced, grab a meat mallet (rolling pins are also effective). Place your steak between two pieces of parchment paper and beat it until it is 5-8mm thin.

Homemade schnitzels are great for lunch or dinner, they are best straight from the fryer or even cold – throw them through a salad or in a LCHF carb wrap.

Deep frying is an excellent cooking method, and we use it often. If you’re unsure what kind of deep fryer to buy, check out our article on the Best Oil For Deep Frying first.

We’ve added nutritional information for your benefit on the recipe card below. This recipe makes 4 servings, the recipe card reflects 1 serving which is 1/4 of the total recipe.

Keto Beef Schnitzels Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds of Beef Topside, cut into four thin steaks
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons of Heavy Cream
  • 3 ounces of Parmesan, finely grated or powdered
  • 2 ounces of Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 teaspoon of Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder

How To Make Low-Carb Beef Schnitzels

  1. Turn your deep fryer to 350F/180C and allow it to heat before frying.
  2. Crack the egg into a mixing bowl and add the heavy cream. Whisk together.
  3. Mix the parmesan cheese, flaxseed meal, garlic powder, and pepper in a separate mixing bowl. Pour this mixture onto a tray and spread it out.
  4. Dip each steak into the egg mix, press into the parmesan mix, and press the “breading” onto each side.
  5. Begin frying your schnitzels. Each schnitzel will take around 5-7 minutes to cook. Ensure that the entire schnitzel is immersed in the oil for even cooking. If you have a small fryer, it is a good idea to fry the schnitzels in small batches, one or two at a time.
  6. Serve your schnitzels with a squeeze of lemon juice.
