DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 400°F.

  • Cut the beef into bite-size squares (about 1-1/4-inch squares).
  • Season the beef squares with the steak seasoning.
  • Shake the steak pieces in a plastic bag containing the flour (seasoned with salt and pepper), until each piece is individually coated.
  • Refrigerate steak while continuing preparation.
  • In a bowl, thoroughly blend the corn flake crumbs with the chopped pecans, Parmesan cheese, paprika and nutmeg (if using); set aside.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter.
  • Add in the 2 Tbsp flour, and stir until flour is completely dissolved.
  • Whisk in the 1 cup of half and half cream, stir until the mixture come to a light boil, and thickens; lower the heat to a simmer.
  • Add in the grated cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce, and continue stirring and cooking until the cheese is completely melts; turn off the heat, and keep the mixture warm.
  • Dip each piece of the floured steak square in the cheese sauce, then roll in the bowl of dry crumb mixture (make sure that all sides are coated).
  • Place on a well-greased cookie sheet, leaving spaces between each square.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the steak squares are a deep, golden brown.
  • Cool slightly before removing with a spatula.
