My kids love steak and anything with tomato sauce. This Italian-inspired dish that I make in my Connecticut home is easy to fix and great for reheating later, such as when you're helping out a friend with a home-cooked dinner or contributing to a potluck meal, a New England tradition that began with the colonists.


½ cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
6 4-ounce cube steaks
pepper to taste
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups hot prepared marinara sauce


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs and the cheese; set aside. In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon water.
  2. Lightly season the steaks with pepper (may not be necessary depending on your tastes and how seasoned your bread crumbs are). Heat the oil in a large nonstick pan.
  3. Dip the steaks into the eggs and then into the bread crumb mixture, dredging through the crumbs well.
  4. Fry in hot oil over medium heat about four minutes on each side or until cooked through. Serve hot with ⅓ cup marinara sauce poured over each steak.

Cooking Tip

There are many kinds of sauce you can use—marinara, spaghetti or pasta sauce. Just choose your favorite kind and flavor—or make your own!
