I have recently become acquainted with the wonderful ingredient of panko. Panko is Japanese bread crumbs. This is a recipe that The Queen Mother found (somewhere) that has become one of my go-to staples for a quick dinner.
- Cube steaks
- Panko (I use Kikkoman brand)
- Dijon mustard
- Vegetable oil
I serve two cube steaks per person since the steaks are very thin. Coat each side of the cube steak liberally with Dijon mustard. Make sure you get the mustard all the way to the edge of the steak.
Roll in the panko bread crumbs until fully coated on both sides.
In a skillet, heat the vegetable oil. I don’t measure, just pour in enough to cover the bottom of the skillet. When it’s hot, reduce heat to medium-high and put in the steaks. (I cook two at a time!)
Fry 2 minutes per side on medium-high heat. And trust me on the two minutes!
