Cube Steaks Parmigiana

Recipe by Juliesmom




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F; pan spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish.
  • In a large shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and pepper.
  • Crack the eggs into a small bowl, add the water, and beat well; pour into shallow dish.
  • In another bowl, combine the crushed crackers, 1/3 cup grated Parmesan, and 1/2 teaspoon basil; stir well, then pour into shallow dish.
  • Dredge each steak in the flour mixture, coating well, then in the eggs, then in the cracker mixture, gently patting the coating onto the meat.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, add the oil, and saute the coated steaks until browned, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Place the browned steaks in the sprayed baking dish and bake uncovered at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes (leave the oven on when done).
  • In a bowl combine the tomato sauce, brown sugar, onion, half of the oregano, remaining basil, and garlic.
  • Spoon tomato mixture over the steaks and return them to the oven to bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Top each steak with a generous slice of mozzarella, sprinkle with the freshly grated (shredded is good, too) Parmesan, and sprinkle with the remaining oregano.
  • Bake for about 3 minuntes until cheese are melted to your preference.
  • Serve with lightly buttered fettuccini or fettuccini Alfredo, a nice green salad, and garlic bread.
