Back in the good ol' days this used to be the go to meal in my family to celebrate a special occasion. It's not a very known recipe because it's very similar to chicken fried steak but more Italian and delicious. Now, I'm going to pass it on to your family because nothing says "Italian" comfort food like meat, potatoes, and warm garlic bread.
Ingredients for breaded Italian steak:
- 1 pound beef chuck tender steak
- 2 cups of panko Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 2 large eggs
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- peanut oil for frying
Pound each slice of steak with a Meat Tenderizer until it is about 1/4" thick.
In a shallow bowl or pie dish scramble the eggs with the milk.
Put the bread crumbs into a different dish.
Dip each slice of steak into the egg wash bread crumbs, then dip the meat into the bread crumbs, followed by another dip in egg wash, followed by the bread crumbs. Make sure that the meat gets completely coated with both the egg and breadcrumbs.
Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
Place the slices of breaded steak into the pan with the heated oil.
Cook for 6-7 minutes then flip.
Cook for an additional 6-7 minutes.
Turn the steaks out into a dish lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
Serve with warm garlic bread, and mashed potatoes or angel hair pasta.
