Day 3: Steak Fingers

I'm seriously late posting tonight so I'll just stick to the essentials. The recipe and my family's reaction to the meal.

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs
12 oz round steak, trimmed of visible fat and sliced 3/4 inch wide
1/2 cup oil (I use canola)

Combine flour, Parmesan, basil, salt and pepper in a small bowl; mix well. Lightly beat eggs in a medium bowl. Dip steak into eggs, allowing excess to drain back into bowl. Coat steak with flour mixture, patting gently so coating adheres. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry steak fingers in batches, turning pieces once, until coating is golden, about 5 minutes.

As you can see in the picture, I also made some homemade gravy to serve with it. My dad, brother and I loved it. My kids had one bite of the steak and ate all of their salad...

On a weird side note, I almost had a catastrophe. I opened up the canister of flour and there were weevils in it. Disgusting to the point of almost making me vomit. So dad made an emergency trip to the store to buy me some more then I was right back on track.

Oh, on another side note, my baby will be 2 on Friday!!! I cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. His party is going to be at JJ Jump in Vancouver, and anyone that has ever spent time with him can easily see why I chose that as the place to have it. He jumps everywhere, even on the hard floor. I don't know how his knees and feet can take all of it, but he doesn't stop.

Don't know what's on the menu for tomorrow yet, so you will have to be surprised!!!
