Milanesa, a typical dish in uruguay

milanesa uruguay When I travel I tend to miss uruguayan food, I think this happens more or less to everyone (your birthplace food, not uruguay's ;) Among the stuff I miss, there's...well, of course dulce de leche, but there's also Milanesa.

Milanesa is a typical dish in uruguayan's diet, it consists of a breaded filet, with beef or chicken meat, usually fried, but it can also be oven cooked. If you add on top of the milanesa, ham, cheese, and tomato sauce then it's a "Milanesa a la Napolitana".

milanesa napolitana uruguay It's usually served along with smashed potatoes, or french fries. You can have it on a dish, or between sliced bread, in which case is Milanesa al pan. It comes with tomato, lettuce, and sliced egg.

milanesa uruguay A typical, low budget, lunch, fast/junk food is Milanesa en dos panes, sold in lunch delivery places. This is a milanesa so big that needs two pieces of bread to eat it properly.

milanesa uruguay Every bar in uruguay, has milanesa, you can find it typically in the "minutas" section of the menu (minutas, used for stuff that can be served within few minutes, thus the name).

It's the type of food that's frequently homemade, and uruguayans tend to live under the impression that their mother's milanesas are unbeatable, well, mine are :p

It's actually Mr Bush's favorite uruguayan dish, or so they say, since he discovered it, in his visit to La Corte.

Is there something similar where you live?

Milanesas is originally an Italian dish arrived in Uruguay with the italian immigrants who also brought pizza and faina (farinata in Italian).
Now these dishes belong deeply to our uruguayan culture.
The milanesa has a high "emotional value" for me it's one of my favorite dishes...

Maybe here in England the closest multipurpose dish would be the sausage. It's not flat, of course - a short (say about 12cm or 4 inches) cylinder, can be served whole (often with mashed potatoes or chips) or sliced in sandwiches. Or the long frankfurter German style sausage served as a hotdog in some snack places. Proper hot English mustard (not the bland American stuff) is obligatory

Here in Chicago if you go down to Taylor Street (the area known as "Little Italy,") you can find many spots selling "Steak Milenese."
I've never seen it done with chicken, although chicken parmagiana, where the bread crumbs are mixed with parmesan cheese before cooking is pretty similar to the Napolitano version mentioned, but without the ham.

hey "Steak Milenese" sounds good to me, even more with crumbs mixed with cheese!

(I didn't have dinner, and I'm starving. I'm drooling at my own post pictures, but I'm just too lazy to cook at midnight.)

F*ck milanese. Chivito all the way! How can you beat an egg and steak sandwich for $1.50?
