“I've been making this for so long that I can't remember where I got the original recipe from. The crushed saltine crackers help make the coating extra crispy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12-2 lbs cube steaks
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 12 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups finely crushed saltine crackers
  • cooking oil


  1. Season each steak on both sides with salt and pepper, rubbing it into the meat.
  2. In a shallow dish, beat the eggs.
  3. Place the flour and cracker crumbs in 2 separate pie plates.
  4. One at a time, dredge the steaks in the flour, then dip in the egg, then coat with the cracker crumbs.
  5. In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over low heat.
  6. Add the steaks and cook slowly, turning them carefully once or twice.
  7. It will take about 20-30 minutes until the meat is fully cooked through and the crumb coating is brown and crisp.
  8. Serve with milk gravy.
