Italian Fried Steak Recipe


Let me just say you can use any kind of meat here. Steak, chicken, cube steaks, turkey. Doesn't matter this is a basic coating that is fantastic on every meat you want to fry. No matter what you use for the meat it always is delicious and the smell frying is mouth watering.






Marinade:

1 cup any good tasting white wine if it not a good tasting wine don't use it!
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, cayenne
dash of dried Italian herbs 
add some fresh basil and rosemary if you like it
3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Meat I prefer:

Steak boneless: (New York Strip, Boneless Ribeyes or whatever you prefer these are the most tender) sliced in long pieces or substitute chicken, cube steaks, veal, or even fish.

Coating mixture:

1 egg
1 cup flour
water
Italian flavored bread crumbs
Parmesan cheese added to bread crumbs two or three tablespoons

herbs: dried oregano, basil, parsley, salt, pepper, granulated garlic

Marinate the meat  for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Slice the drained meat around 1/2 thick pieces.

Shake into all purpose seasoned flour in a ziplock bag around 1 cup flour and around 1 teaspoon each of herbs and seasonings.

Place bread crumbs in a pie plate with seasonings.

Beat an egg and 1/4 cup water in a pie plate set aside.

Dip each floured cutlet into the beaten egg water mixture and then 
into Italian flavored breadcrumbs.

In a large fry pan add 2 tablespoons butter and canola or vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan and heat to medium heat. Saute steaks on one side till golden brown then turn and cook till golden brown on the other side.  Place on paper towel to drain off oil.

Serve immediately.
