Makes: 4 servings
Start to Finish 30 mins
Italian Fried Steak with Roasted Pepper Pesto
  • 1/2  cup  seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2  cup  grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • 1  egg
  • 2  tablespoons  water
  • 1 1/2  pounds  beef cubed steak
  •  Salt
  •  Ground black pepper
  •  Olive oil
  • 1 12  ounce jar  roasted red sweet peppers, drained
  • 2/3  cup  fresh basil leaves

1. In a shallow dish combine bread crumbs and half of the cheese. In another shallow dish beat together egg and the water. Cut meat into eight equal-size portions; lightly sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Dip meat pieces into egg mixture, then crumb mixture; press lightly to coat.

2. In a 12-inch skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in two batches, cook steak about 5 minutes per side, adding more oil as needed. Remove to a serving platter; cover to keep warm. Carefully wipe skillet clean.

3. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a blender or processor combine sweet peppers and the remaining cheese. Process until nearly smooth. Finely chop 1/2 cup of the basil; set aside. Transfer pepper mixture to hot skillet and heat through. Remove from heat. Stir in finely chopped basil. Pour sauce over steaks. Sprinkle with remaining basil.
