Very few meats are as satisfying as a good steak, and everyone should have a recipe or two of preparing some for their loved ones! This is one of my favourite ways of having steak, a deliciously crisp outer coating giving way to a moist, tender and very flavourful burst of goodness with every bite. This goes well with fries of course, or with baked potatoes/wedges, some garlic bread on the side and a good dollop of mayo or sour cream.
1 kg fillet steak (best cut) cut into thin slices of about half inch thickness or slightly less
1 heaped tsp. ginger/garlic paste
juice of 1 lemon
salt/pepper to taste
Cut the slices into average sized pieces. Marinate the steak pieces in the above ingredients for a few hours. Then take each piece of fillet and using a meat mallet, pound it until it is very thin.
Whip 1-2 eggs with a touch of salt and 1 tsp. milk, set aside.
Mix half cup of plain flour, seasoned with salt and pepper powder, set aside.
Heat about 2-3 inches of oil in a pan.
Now take one piece of pounded steak fillet at a time, dip it in the egg on both sides followed by the flour. Make sure the flour coats the pieces completely. Then fry on medium to low heat on both sides for about 7-10 minutes approximately, or until the steaks are done on the inside and brown and crisp on the outside. Drain on kitchen tissues and serve with fries or whatever you like. Enjoy!
