Cube Steak Parmigiana

I received this recipe from a friend when I was a newlywed. Now my family of six loves it so much I have to double the recipe! I like to serve it with pasta, a tossed salad and homemade bread.

    Very tasty. We liked extra sauce for the pasta we served to compliment.

    This recipe is awesome! I happened to have some cube steak and I looked for a recipe to try. My family loved it and I will make it again.

    We substituted sliced Provolone cheese, which was on hand, and used salt free crackers (as it was a bit salty the first time we made it).

    Turned out very good although it was very time consuming and tasted like glorified meatballs to me...

    It hard to make something that all my family members like but they all LOVED this meal. This is going to be a weekly meal. LOVE IT!

    This was easy to put together with ingredients on hand, very good. I also made it using boneless, skinless chicken breasts. That was also very good. Served with pasta with an alfredo sauce, salad and garlic bread.

    This a great recipe. I doubled the flour, salt and pepper. I baked the cubed steak with the sauce mixture and put tin foil over the dish. The last 5 minutes I took the tin foil off. Used shredded mozzarella chese instead of sliced(it is what I had on hand).
