  • 800 grams rump steak cut into strips and beaten out
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • Olive oil spray


  • In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Mix well to evenly distribute the seasonings.
  • Place the flour in a separate shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
  • Take each strip of rump steak and dredge it in the flour, making sure to coat it evenly. Shake off any excess flour. Dip the floured steak strip into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s fully coated. Roll the egg-coated strip in the seasoned bread crumbs, pressing gently to help the crumbs adhere. For a double crumb, repeat the egg and bread crumb steps.
  • Place the breaded steak strips in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they are not overlapping. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  • Lightly spray the breaded steak strips with olive oil on both sides. Set the air fryer to 200°C. Cook for 8 minutes, turning the strips halfway through the cooking time and spraying them lightly with olive oil again after turning.
  • After 8 minutes, the schnitzel bites should be golden brown and crispy. If needed, cook for an additional 1-2 minutes for extra crispiness.
  • Serve the mini schnitzel bites hot with your favorite dipping sauces or sides.



These mini schnitzel bites are best served with a tangy mustard dip, creamy ranch, or a zesty marinara sauce. Pair them with a fresh salad or some crispy fries for a complete meal. They also make an excellent slider when paired with mini buns and your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
