I have been wanting a different way to make cube steak other than the same old way I've always done, and I think this is it! I have changed the original recipe a bit because I like a longer cooking time for meat.

    minced fresh parsley (optional)

    freshly ground pepper, divided

How to Make CUBE STEAK MILANESE

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, and 1/4 tsp. salt.
  2. Whisk egg and egg white in a shallow dish. Combine breadcrumbs, grated cheese and parsley (if using) in another shallow dish. Season steak with the remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Dip each piece into the egg, allowing excess to drip off into the dish, then dip in the breadcrumb mixture and turn to coat well.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tsp. oil. Add the steaks and cook until golden brown on the first side, about 3 minutes. Turn, add 1 tsp. oil, and cook another 3 or 4 minutes.
  4. At this point, they would be done to some people's liking, but I prefer to cover and cook on low for at least another 20-25 minutes.
  5. When steaks are tender, transfer to a foil-tented plate to keep warm.
  6. Add 1/4 cup shaved cheese to the tomato mixture. Add the remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper, remaining 3 tsp. oil, arugula, basil and lemon juice; toss to combine. Serve the steaks on arugula-tomato salad. Garnish with lemon wedges and shaved cheese.
