Gluten free Milanesas with Brussels Sprouts

Milanesas is one of the most traditional argentinian recipes. Today we're showing you the gluten-free version, using gluten-free bread crumbs and a delicious side of brussels sprouts. Check the step by step recipe in our video:

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 4 pieces of thinly sliced beef (it needs to be a good tender cut)
  • 2 eggs (you can add some milk to the mix if the eggs are smallish)
  • oregano
  • parsley
  • garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • gluten free bread crumbs
For the side:
  • brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 cup of water
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper

A few tips:

  • you can either fry or bake your milanesas. We choose to bake them, for a lighter version.
  • experiment adding different spices to your egg mix!
  • bake them for about 20 minutes
  • when cooking the brussels sprouts, make sure you give them a nice brown before adding the water, for better taste
  • you can replace the lime with lemon or with a little bit of vinegar
We hope you try it!


  1. Question....what is the type of cheese that is traditionally used on a Milanesa a la Napolitana in Argentina? That was my favorite there and I would like to recreate!

  2. Hi Erin! the cheese we typically use is mozzarella. Try adding oregano on top to get the argentinian flavor :)

  3. Brussel sprouts provide a healthy side dish to the bread crumbs.
