Red Pepper Pesto

  • ½ cup Walnuts
  • 1 cup Roasted red peppers
    (we used jarred red peppers to save time but you can also roast your own red peppers directly on the stove until charred on all sides and then cover, peel, and remove seeds)
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • Salt and pepper
    to taste
  • cup Basil
    fresh or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 2 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon Water
    as needed to make your pesto a nice smooth consistency for your red pepper pesto.
  • 2 cups pork rinds
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • red pepper flakes
    dash to your desired heat level- optional
  • 16 oz boneless trimmed beef sirloin cutlets
    4 (approximately 3-4-oz) 1⁄4" thick and pounded flat with a meat pounder or like we did in a sealed baggie with a rolling pin.
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
    to taste
  • ¼ cup Olive oil


  • Make the red pepper pesto- In a food processor, walnuts and pulse until fine. Then add roasted red peppers, garlic, salt and pepper to taste, basil, olive oil, parmesan cheese and water as needed until a smooth consistency. Set aside
  • Make a breading station- Set up bowl with beaten egg. On a large plate mix ground pork rinds, parmesan cheese, almond flour, Italian seasoning and a dash of red chili pepper flakes. Mix well.
  • Season trimmed beef sirloins with salt and pepper on both sides. Dip the beef cutlets in the egg wash and then coat with season pork rind mixture on both sides. Pat and remove excess breading.
  • Heat up olive oil in a large frying pan and fry beef for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Add more oil if needed.
  • Serve parmesan herb crusted beef cutlets with red pepper pesto and enjoy!


If you have an air fryer, Parmesan Herb Crusted Beef Cutlets would be delicious cooked in there as well.
