Breaded Steak Fingers

Well, this will be my last blog post before we move into our new home.  I have been preparing SUPER EASY meals the last few weeks because I am just too tired after packing to mess with a meal that requires too much thought and preparation.  Of course, that is me most of the time, but the packing gives me a real excuse....right?  With that being said, I tried out something new and these were amazing!  They don't require hardly any fuss and cook up in minutes.  I am very fortunate to have an AWESOME meat company (Stone's Meats) close to me where I can call in and order special cuts and it's all ready for me to pick up for dinner.    I ordered some steak that was cubed and pre-cut into strips which saved me from having to do it.  Then, I breaded it and fried it up and served it with some french fries (I will admit that I used frozen fries, but, hey, they're so good!).  Great dinner and so easy!  Here's the recipe!  Enjoy!

Breaded Steak Fingers
1 lb of cubed steak cut into strips
1 cup of flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper (optional - if you don't like pepper, then just omit this)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 bowl of water to dip strips in


  1. Heat cooking oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit in a skillet or use a deep fryer (I use a deep fryer).
  2. Mix all dry ingredients well in a dish.
  3. Dip steak in water to moisten and then dip into flour mixture making sure it's coated really well.
  4. Fry until golden brown, which is about 4-5 minutes.  Remove and place on plate lined with paper towel to drain any extra grease.  Serve immediately.  Horseradish dipping sauce is wonderful with this and of course the old standby, Ranch dressing is good too!
  5. Add some fries, mashed potatoes or rice and you have a great dinner!
