Are you tired of chicken fried steak? This recipe dresses up cubed steaks Italian-style with cheese, tomato sauce, basil and oregano. My husband and I like this main dish with a side of fettuccine Alfredo.—Sarah Befort Hays, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup finely crushed saltines
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 4 beef cube steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/4 cups tomato sauce
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat eggs and water. Place cracker crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and basil in a third bowl.
  2. Coat steaks with flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture and coat with crumb mixture. In a large skillet, brown steaks in oil for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  3. Arrange steaks in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°. Combine the tomato sauce, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon oregano and garlic powder; spoon over steaks. Bake 10 minutes longer.
  4. Top each steak with mozzarella cheese; sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese and remaining oregano. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
