Country Fried Steak

These were so flavorful! I put these together and whipped up some country-style gravy from the packet and some instant potatoes. It was a great little meal that I was able to put together fast. I need more of these. Next time I will really watch and try not to overcook them at all.


1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 (4 ounce) packet saltine crackers, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Montreal steak seasoning
4 (4 ounce) cube steaks
2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Whisk together the egg and milk in a shallow bowl; set aside.
Whisk together the flour, crushed saltines, seasoned salt, onion powder, and steak seasoning. 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.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and fry the steaks until they are golden brown, firm, hot in the center, and just turning from pink to grey, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
