Looking for a flavorful and easy dinner option? This hearty and flavorful Italian Cubed Beef recipe makes a comforting meal and it won’t break the bank.

Cubed steaks are such an inexpensive way to have beef for dinner. I love them Chicken Fried, but I think that this is my favorite way to cook cubed steak.

Cubed steak is just an inexpensive, typically tough piece of meat that has been tenderized.

How To Make

To make Italian Cubed Beef, coat 4 pieces of cubed steak in a mixture of flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper and then dip in egg mixed with some milk, and finally coat in a Italian seasoned bread crumb and Parmesan cheese mixture.

Brown them in a skillet with a little oil for just about 2 minutes per side. Then transfer them to a baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes to fully cook them. Top them with some pasta sauce (use your favorite jarred sauce or homemade) , lots of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Pop the cubed steaks back in the oven just until the cheese is melted.

How To Serve

Serve with pasta for an unbelievably delicious Italian-style meal. For sides I like either a garden salad with Creamy Italian Dressing or steamed broccoli. A Creamy Italian Cucumber Salad is also delicious.
