Healthier Italian Cube Steak

Total Time

Cook 33 mins

this version is healthier because it doesn't have flour,bread crumbs,or cracker crumbs. Also, to cut back on fat the mozzerella cheese can be left out and use only the lower fat parmesan.This is my own creation.

Yummy and pretty easy. My only quibble is that the directions could have been a LOT clearer. I drained my mushrooms (doesn't say), used garlic powder (seemed more logical than fresh garlic) and salted and peppered the meat before browning (again, the recipe doesn't specify). I browned the meat on medium high heat (8) but it burned a bit so I might knock it down some next time. Cube steaks go on sale often and I am usually stumped about what to do with them, so I will be adding this to my rotation. I served this with Recipe #122143 which cooks at the same temperature.

This dish turned out beautifully! I made it even healthier by omitting the oil and using reduced-fat cheeses. We like a lot of sauce so I doubled it and the spices. I'm glad I did. There were a few of us who still would have liked more sauce since I served it over spaghetti. The flavors were excellent and even the kids loved it. Thanks!
