4 beef cube steaks
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed*
1/2 cup flour
3 eggs, beaten
salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder, desired amount**
1 packet of McCormick Original Country Gravy Mix, prepared according to package directions
Prepared mashed potatoes
In 3 separate large plastic storage or Zip-loc bags, place crushed saltine crackers, flour and beaten eggs. (Using plastic bags allows for easy clean-up, but if you prefer use 3 glass pans for your breading stations.) Season each with desired amounts of salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders. One at a time, place cube steaks first in seasoned flour, then in seasoned egg and finally in seasoned cracker crumbs. In a large frying pan over medium heat, saute steaks in about 1/4 inch of canola oil for about 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked thoroughly and golden brown. Serve with mashed potatoes and country gravy.
*Crush saltine crackers in a large, sealed plastic storage bag with a rolling pan.
**Make sure and season the crackers, flour and eggs well.
