Cutlets are one of the easiest and fastest meat dishes to prepare. It's worth noting that they can be made from a variety of meats and even vegetables and legumes. But very often, even such a simple dish can be made tasteless - by making them very overcooked or, on the contrary, raw inside. Very often, cutlets fall apart because of eggs, which make the minced meat liquid.
