Cubed Steak Parmigiana

   We have been out of beef for a little while and have just been picking some up at the grocery store every now and then until we can get a [part] of beef butchered for the freezer. We bought cubed steak the other night with cubed steak and gravy on the menu, but then I found this recipe and pretty quickly changed my mind. While I love cubed steak and gravy this seemed like a more exciting option and besides trying new recipes is kinda my thing....Turned out it was a smart decision. So delicious!

Cubed Steak Parmigiana
4 beef cubed steaks
3 tbsp olive oil
6 tbsp flour 
1 tsp salt
 1/2 tsp pepper
2 eggs
3 tbsp water
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp basil
28 oz can tomato sauce
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp oregano, divided
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
 1/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
 In a shallow bowl {or pie pans work great} combine flour salt and pepper. In a second bowl combine eggs and water. In a third bowl combine cracker crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Coat steaks with flour mixture, dip in egg mixture and coat with cracker crumb mixture. Place into skillet and fry until golden brown on each side. Place into a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Bake uncovered @ 375* for 25 minutes.
Combine tomato sauce, sugar, 1/2 tsp oregano, basil and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Spoon over steaks. Return to oven and bake 10 minutes longer. Top each steak with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and remaining oregano. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted. 
Serve on a bed of browned butter fettuccine with extra sauce. 


Be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer.
~Romans 12:12
