Keto Schnitzel with Green Beans

We recently prepared this recipe in our own kitchen and it tastes amazing! If you don’t know what schnitzel is, it is a thinly slice of meat that is breaded and fried. Schnitzel originated in Europe, more specifically Germany. You achieve this very thin slice of meat by pounding it with a meat tenderizer. It is then served with a mayonnaise base, and lemon slices. has paired all of this with some fresh green beans and capers.
