My family loved this. I was lucky and found the Milanesas meat already thinly sliced at the supermarket. After cooking it I cut each piece in half and place both halves on a homemade Herb Roll then melted the cheese over the tomatoe under the broiler. I've have already been asked if I would make it again for them. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Wow! I've made Milanesa for Christmas Eve for several years. This was the best. I also put them in a pan and put a thin slice of ham and a thin slice of Montery Jack cheese on top. I put a toothpick in each milanesa. Then I pour our favorite spaghetti sauce on top and bake for 30 minutes. It is so yummy. It is called Milanesa Nepolitana.

I had last eaten Milanesas when I lived in Argentina eight years ago. They have always been made for me. I finally got inspired to make them myself when I found just the right cuts of steak at the Grocery store. This recipe was awesome. I made it the more traditional Argentinian way, without the tomatoes and mozzerella, because I wanted to remember it the way I had eaten it most often in Argentina. It turned out great and tasted just like I remembered. I'm going to make it again soon, because My husband (who just happens to be part Italian) loves Italian food and I know he will like it the Napolitana way, as shown in this recipe. Thanks!
