How to flatten meat for escalopes and schnitzels

For schnitzels or escalopes – place the cutlet between two sheets of cling film and hammer down with a mallet. The flat or the ribbed end can be used, depending on the purpose. I’d say the flat for saltimbocca and the ribbed for schnitzels or escalopes that will be coated in breadcrumbs.
