Cube Steak Parmesan

Stuck in a chicken rut? Try this Italian classic with inexpensive cube steak instead of chicken.

3-4 cube steaks 
½ cup flour
Salt and pepper
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup Panko bread crumbs
½ cup shredded parmesan
4 T olive oil
1 (32-oz) can tomato sauce
2 tsp sugar
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp basil
½ tsp garlic powder
½ cup shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

Pour flour onto a plate and season with salt and pepper. Beat egg in a separate dish. Combine bread crumbs and parmesan on a third plate. Preheat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil heats, dredge steaks in flour, egg, and the bread crumb mixture, coating each side completely. Add steaks to hot oil and fry until just browned on each side.

In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, sugar, oregano, basil, and garlic. Pour enough of the sauce into the baking dish to coat the bottom. Place steaks atop the sauce in a single layer and top with the remaining sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with mozzarella, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite pasta.
