Oven-Baked Steak Fingers

Here's something that's a little bit on the heartier side. Economical, lean round steak is dredged in a simple batter of egg, flour, and cornmeal that gives it a nice crunchy bite and then baked. It'll keep the kids' tummies from rumbling for a good while.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound round steak
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup white or whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 Cup cornmeal
  • Cooking spray

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Pound the steak with a meat tenderizer. Cut into evenly sized strips or nuggets. Lightly season the meat with salt and pepper. Whisk the egg and milk together in a medium-sized bowl. Add the meat to the bowl and mix well. Mix the flour and cornmeal together in another medium-sized bowl.

Dredge the beef through the flour mixture one piece at a time. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and arrange the steak on the cookie sheet. Coat with cooking spray. Bake until the steak fingers are cooked thoroughly, about 30-45 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Baked Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Baked Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
