Directions

  1. Place the beef roast into the freezer for several hours, until very firm and almost frozen. Slice the beef about 1/8 inch thick across the grain. You can also ask the butcher to slice it very thinly for you.
  2. Whisk the eggs and water together in a bowl. Spread the bread crumbs out onto a large sheet of aluminum foil, and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and Parmesan cheese. Mix all the crumb ingredients together until well combined. Dip each piece of beef into the egg mixture, then thoroughly coat with crumbs. Place the coated slices onto a sheet of foil on a baking sheet, and separate them with waxed paper as you dip and coat the beef.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy skillet until shimmering, and pan-fry the beef slices until golden brown, about 2 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the second side. Fry 2 or 3 slices per batch.

I make this ALL the time! We've always called it 'breaded steaks', but it's the exact same thing. The only thing I do differently is buy the roast already cut into thin 'steaks' because my grocery store sells it like that and it makes life easier for me, lol. These are very good and I like to serve them either with pasta, lasagna, or stuffed shells or just with rice, or mashed potaotes and a salad and veggie. Definately give these a try, you won't be disappointed! :)

I'm sorry, but I wasted my ingredients and most importantly my time AND my good meat on this recipe. I followed every step to the "T". Except for freezing to cut. My meat was already thin. It just sat there in the oil. It was a mess. The flavor was bland. My fiance's mother made this before, and this recipe tastes NOTHING like hers... I think I'll stick with her recipe. I don't want to sund rude, but I am very dissatisfied... I will try to make again, maybe with a different type of meat. I just don't think breaded crumbs is for beef at all. Thanks tho. If it turns up better next time, I will rate high and try to edit this.

This is a favorite here in Florida; in the Latin community it is called Bistec Empanizado, and served with rice and beans. I love it!!!!!!!!

try marinating the beef slices in red wine vinegar for 1/2 hour or so before you bread them...that's how my husbands italian nana did it...yumyum

This is one of my favorite meals. I use the thin cut steak used for braccole. I also use flour as the first coating. I generously season the flour with adobo and sazon. Then I coat the meat with flour, then egg, then bread crumbs...then back in egg and bread crumbs. Gives it a nice thick coating. I serve with tomatoes slices in italian or balsamic dressing...yum!

It taste great, but I couldn't get the bread crumbs to stay on worth a . I tried pan frying, deep frying. Finally I did an oven bake and that worked better.
