One of my husband’s favorite foods these Schnitzels or Milanesas as they are called in Argentina or Escalopas in Chile, my mother in law is from Argentina and her mother was famous for this recipe. My husband cooked them. Actually they are better than the ones I have done.
When we came to live in the U.S. my mother in law taught me some of her most classic dishes and among them were these Milanesas.
