    • 1 egg
    • 4 tablespoons milk
    • 125g plain flour
    • 115g Doriano Italian crackers, crushed
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder

    • 4 (115g) rump beef steaks, pounded thin
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Beat together the egg and milk in a shallow bowl; set aside.
    2. Whisk together the flour, crackers, seasoned salt, onion powder and steak seasoning.
    3. Dip the steaks in the egg mixture, then press each steak in the flour mixture. Pat the flour mixture into the steaks to coat them completely.
    4. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the steaks until they are golden brown, firm, hot in the centre and just turning from pink to brown, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 70 degrees C.

    This recipe had great flavor and was easy to make. I recommend cooking it on medium heat rather than medium high; the first one I cooked ended up a little burnt. Turning the heat down made them perfect.  -  21 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was terrific! Great taste, not bland in any way. I used McCormick hamburger seasoning instead of Montreal Steak seasoning and ground sirloin. I topped this with peppered gravy and we had such a great meal that hubby and I even split the last (second) piece. We usually don't eat seconds for diet conscious reasons but this was so delicious we both just couldn't resist a little more. Thanks, this is the best recipe!!!  -  19 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
