  1. Bash the steak depending on tenderness and quality. Beat egg and dip each steak into egg, then roll in breadcrumbs so it covers them.
  2. Fry the steaks in olive oil in a nonstick pan to your preference of cooking. Once cooked, take out of pan and set aside to rest.
  3. Heat sugar, salt, pepper and stock cube into the dry pan. Once sugar has caramelised, add some boiling water (about 300ml or 1/2 pint) then return the steak to the pan and cook for 1 minute longer.


You can use veal steaks, too.
