“This is my husbands recipe. Please give it a try the cheese crackers give the meat a great taste.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 beef steaks or 4 pork cube steaks
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cups cheese crackers, crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • flour
  • oil
  • 1 can of your favorite beef gravy, I use franco american beef gravy,actually low in fat.
  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained


  1. First let explain that I usually do not measure ingredients, thus the lack of exact measurements.
  2. Make the cheese cracker crumbs out of your favorite cheese crackers.
  3. Do not use regular cracker because there is a huge taste difference.
  4. Season the cutlets with garlic salt and pepper.
  5. I use a Parmesan cheese container (like they have at your favorite italian restaurant) to sprinkle flour onto my meat.
  6. Sprinkle meat with flour.
  7. Dip the cutlets into the egg and then into the cracker crumbs.
  8. Place the breaded cutlets on a platter and let rest in the refridgerator for 15 minutes or longer.
  9. This helps the breading stay on the cutlets.
  10. If your in a hurry you can skip this step just make sure the meat is cooked on one side before turning or you will loose the breading.
  11. Fry cutlet in oil until golden brown.
  12. Place on a paper lined platter, and keep warm until ready to serve.
  13. Heat gravy with mushrooms.
  14. Serve cutlet and pass the gravy to put on top of the meat.
