Parmesan Cube Steaks & NO Snow!
Big disappointment this morning when we awoke. The news channels were forecasting 4-8 inches of snow overnight but when we got up this morning all that was out there was a light dusting.
Bummer....we were all hoping for a big snow.
Schools were cancelled though because the surrounding hilltops did get a 4-5 inch blanket of snow. So, even though the roads in town were perfectly clear, the kids had to stay home because the ridge roads were treacherous.
Frustrating to me!
I don't see why our Dept. of Highways can't seem to keep up with the roads now a days. They always have in the past.
Is it due to a lack of state funds??
I'll stop there before I go on a rant about our whole government system.
While staying indoors on this unsnowy (is that even a word)
day I made these Parmesan cube steaks. Cube steaks are not a favorite of mine but these were really tasty. Coated with flour, browned and then baked, and topped with a spoonful of tomato sauce and mozzarella.
Parmesan Cube Steaks
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3 tbsp. water
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. dried basil
8 cube steaks
16 oz. tomato sauce
1 tbsp. Worchestershire sauce
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Mix flour, salt and pepper and set aside.
Whisk together the eggs and water and set aside.
Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese & basil.
Heat oil in skillet.
Dredge cube steaks in bowl #1, dip in bowl #2 and then into bowl #3.
Place steaks in skillet and brown on both sides.
Once browned, place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake 400 degrees for about an hour.
Mix tomato sauce, sugar, oregano and garlic powder together.
Spoon a little sauce onto each steak and sprinkle with mozzarella.
Place back in oven to heat the sauce and melt the cheese.
