Beat and pound the veal with a steak hammer into fillets as thin as possible.
Season with salt and pepper.
Dredge the meat in flour first, then dip it into the beaten egg and then dredge it again in bread crumbs, coating the meat well.
In a shallow pan, heat the oil till it is smoking and fry the pounded veal till golden, about 2-3 minutes on both sides.
Remove with a slotted spoon, drain the excess oil with a paper kitchen towel.
Keep it warm.

In case you don't have a meat mallet just wrap the piece of meat in a cling film, and beat it with a rolling pin.
