The steak recipe allows for using lard, butter, or margarine for the cooking fat, so lower calorie options are available. Also, several breading options are available, with a simple egg, milk and flour batter, or you can use bread crumbs, or in my case, corn flake crumbs.
- (flattening the steacks can be quite the tension-releaser!)
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 eggs lightly beaten w/ 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup fine dry bread crumbs or cracker meal
- 4-5 tablespoons lard, meat drippings, butter, or margarine
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Cut steaks into squares about the size of your palm; dust with flour, dip in egg, then crumbs to coat evenly. Heat the lard in a large heavy fry-pan over medium-high heat. Brown steaks 2-3 minutes per side. Sprinkle the browned meat with salt and pepper. Cover the pan, then over low heat, continue cooking 45 minutes until tender.
