Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cube steaks
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 dash paprika
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned garlic salt
  • 13 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 package fresh sliced mushroom
  • 2 -3 tablespoons flour

  4. Cook steaks for 5 minutes on one side (cooking time depends on thickness of steak).

  6. When brown, flip over and continue to cook for another 3 mintues (again cooking time varies).
  7. When finished cooking, remove steaks and keep warm.
  9. Once steaks are finished cooking add a small amount of oil (most of oil, if not all, will have been used in cooking the steaks) and cook the mushrooms.
  10. Add 1/4 water, salt&pepper, and continue cooking.
  11. Make sure to get all of the scraps from the sides of the pan that the steaks left into the liquid you are cooking the mushrooms in.
  12. When most of liquid is cooked off, sprinkle remaining flour over mushrooms and cook for 1 minute.
  13. Add milk and cook until thickened to your liking.
