Oven-Baked Steak Fingers


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.

  • 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


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.
