  1. In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs with the oregano, cumin, and salt and pepper. Beat eggs in another shallow dish. Dip each steak in beaten eggs, and then in the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure to cover each steak well with the breadcrumb mixture.
  2. In a large, deep skillet, heat 1inch oil over medium high heat.
  3. Place the steaks in the oil when it's hot (so that the breading will not stick to the pan). Cook steaks, turning once, until brown for well done and golden brown for medium. Serve with lemon slices.


  • Editor's Note
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

So delicious and easy. Tasted great the next day too! I fried my steak in olive oil with fresh garlic. I also added some garlic powder and Mrs. Dash to my bread crumbs. Yumskers!

2 cups of oil for frying is excessive not to mention unhealthy. I found that not even 1/2 that is plenty.

I liked this! It was easy and tasty. I didn't use cumin and oregano, I used garlic salt and lemon pepper b/c I didn't have an actual lemon and I wanted that flavor. Will definately make this aga...

This was simple and very tasty. Knowing my family's taste for spice I generously added lemon pepper, garlic powder and enough cayenne pepper to make a difference. The breading came out browned a...
