“I always buy steaks like this that are already cubed and tenderized at the meat counter. Fresh tomato slices, mashed potatoes and black-eyed peas complete this menu.”—Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup crushed saltines (about 25 crackers)
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 beef cube steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • GRAVY:
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/3 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and milk. In another shallow bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, flour, salt, baking powder, cayenne and pepper. Dip steaks in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture.
  2. In a large skillet, cook steaks in oil over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  3. For gravy, stir flour into the pan until blended. Gradually add milk, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with steaks.
