Cube Steak Milanese

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (38 votes)

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.

Not your mother's cube steak

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.

Family Favorite!

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.

Easy toss-together salad, Light meal
Too much cheese and bread crumbs.

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.

Pretty easy to make and it looked nice aesthetically
Decent dish

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.

Cube steak was delicious

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!
