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.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup finely crushed saltines (about 10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 6 beef cube steaks (about 4 ounces each)

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
  • 3 slices mozzarella cheese, halved
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • In three shallow bowls, combine flour, salt and pepper; beat egg and water; and combine Parmesan cheese, saltines and basil. Dip steaks in flour mixture and egg mixture, then roll in cheese mixture.
