Beef and chicken cutlets

Beef and chicken cutlets

Each housewife has his favorite recipe for making meatballs.

They are made from beef, pork, chicken, turkey.

It only seems that the burgers are always the same. Their taste, texture, juiciness depend not only on the type of meat, but also on the age of the carcass, additional ingredients, spices, the amount of fat and liquid in minced meat.

Beef patties have a rich meaty taste, but they are sometimes dense and harsh.

Chicken cutlets are softer, but dry. Especially if the stuffing is cooked from the breast. Chicken meat is considered dietary, but it does not have the flavor that is inherent in beef dishes.

Therefore, housewives try to mix several types of minced meat in order to get cutlets that would suit them in all respects.

Cutlets are very tasty, if you mix the minced chicken with beef.
