Method of cooking meat patties with bran and sweet pepper
Choosing meat for meatballs - non-greasy, preferably hip or shoulder of the carcass. Some fat should be left to prevent the patties from getting too dry. For a diet recipe, 20-30 g of fat is enough for the entire amount, for a typical recipe you can leave about 80 g.
Cut the tendons and tendons, cut the meat and bacon in small cubes.
We clean sweet pepper of any color from seeds and partitions, cut into strips. Add the leek to the pepper or, as in this recipe, the light portion of the green onion stalks.
Put the meat and vegetables in the processor, grind the stuffing until smooth. Then pour milk and pour oat bran, add sea salt to taste. By the way, in order for your plate to contain various trace elements, wheat, rye and buckwheat can be added to oat bran in equal proportions.
Knead the minced meat well for meatballs, it requires it, like dough! Ready stuffing close the food film, remove for 20 minutes in the fridge on the bottom shelf.
Heat the oven to a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius.
Grease a baking sheet with a thin layer of refined olive oil. We take out a bowl of minced meat from the fridge, next to it we put a bowl of cold water. We moisten palms in cold water, sculpt small flat oval patties.
We spread the cutlets on a baking sheet with a small distance between them.
Put the baking tray with chops on the top shelf. Cook in the gas oven for 8 minutes on one side, then remove the baking sheet, turn over and continue cooking for another 8 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 100 degrees, we cook for 10 minutes.
Serve cutlets with bran hot on the table, sprinkle with fresh greens. For this dish, prepare a salad of fresh vegetables without oil - you get a healthy low-calorie lunch.
By the way, if you follow the calorie content of servings, then roasting in the oven is always preferable to frying in a frying pan, even with a non-stick coating. The amount of cooking oil is reduced by several times. Of course, steaming or in the microwave oven is more useful, but sometimes you want it so that the burgers turn out with a golden crust!
