Healthier Italian Cube Steak

"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."

  1. Bake is covered or uncovered? When you say fry till brown do you mean sear?


  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. I definitely will make this again.the flavors were amazing. I used okive oil when cooking up the meat. It's healthier and adds more flavor. For heartiness to the sauce adding 1/2 cups of diced stewed tomatoes will be a good additon. But Next time I'll make it with chicken.
  4. What is recipe #12243?
  5. Very good, thanks.
