The Virtues of a Good Meat Mallet

Keeping in mind my "Schnitzel Week," I thought I would share this video showing various uses of a meat mallet, particularly, this "antique" one. 

ANTIQUE??? I bought this one, "Made in Italy," brand new! I'm not that I? He's older than I am! Well, ego aside, a good meat mallet is very handy. It is essential to turning tough cuts of meat into something special, like schnitzel!


  1. I bought a used one of the same mallet at an estate sale this past Friday (8/15).

    Do you know what the side with the single ridge would be for? I'm guessing to break bones. Did your new one come with info on that?

    1. Congratulations on your score! I really never knew what the single ridge was for, but breaking bones sounds right! It's also good for shellfish! When I purchased mine, it did not come with any information. Now you can try some of my excellent recipes for schnitzel! Bon appetit!

    it's important to start with a well-trimmed, lean cut of meat, as fat does not dry out and accelerates spoilage. An eye of round roast is ideal; it's affordable, accessible, lean, and easy to trim. Before slicing, pop it in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours; it will be much easier to cut.

  4. La Jolla sits atop one of San Diego’s most scenic coastlines—a beacon of beauty, cuisine, and culture. Given its proximity to the ocean alone, you know you’ll find stellar seafood here. But dig a bit deeper and you’ll find some of the area’s best tacos, not to mention world-class Italian food and gorgeous spots to dine al fresco. Take a break from the boutique shopping scene and trendy art galleries, come up for air from your snorkeling excursion in the sea caves, and sit down to the best La Jolla Restaurants.
