I recommend soaking red onions in ice water for 10 minutes, a tip I learned in another Eating Well tomato and onion salad recipe. That way, it takes "the edge off" the overpowering bite of the raw red onions. Also, next time I will use only 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.
Cube Steak Milanese
The economical cube steak is elevated to new heights in this recipe. The salad, with chopped arugula, basil, tomatoes, onion and sharp Italian cheese, is the picture of summer simplicity; all it needs is olive oil and lemon to dress it.

My kids absolutely LOVE this dish! It's got a great flavor, and light meal. I have made this dish several times, even serving the salad with other meals. Thinking of trying to bake the steak rather than pan frying it.
It wasn't a terrible dish. I measured out everything correctly (Including the 1lbs of beef) There was way too much egg muck left over as well as too much cheese put into it. I ended up ditching most of it since I couldn't bring myself to douse the meat in any more bread crumbs. Would recommend only using 1 egg white and half of breadcrumbs/cheese. That's just a waste of money throwing out all of the extra mix. Also as someone else said: Way too much basil and oil.
The cube steaks were excellent. I used grated parmesan and fresh romano.
The salad had far too much basil and onion though, recommend cutting down on the amounts it calls for. fresh basil has a fairly overpowering taste.
I have never eaten cube steak as delicious as this! Much less a low calorie dish! I strongly recommend this recipe. I couldn't find arugula so served the steak on top of some spring mix salad...YUM! The kids loved it too!
