  3. Repeat this for all the pieces of tenderloin.
  4. Put the breadcrumbs onto a plate, beat the egg and put it into a shallow dish, put the flour onto a plate. Lay each side of one of the bashed out pieces of tenderloin on to the flour, pressing it down gently, then dip it in the egg, coating it completely before laying each side onto the breadcrumbs, making sure it is totally covered. Repeat this for each of the bashed out pieces of tenderloin.
  5. Preheat the oven to 170°c.
  6. Heat 2 of the tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and then put in as many of the breadcrumbed, bashed out pieces of tenderloin as will comfortably fit (try not to overcrowd the pan).
  7. Fry them on one side for 2 minutes before turning them over and frying for a further 2 minutes. Test that the escalopes are cooked by sticking a sharp knife into the meat; if the juices that come out of the knife cut are red, the meat is undercooked, they should be clear and colourless. frying the escalopes
