Thanks to Phyllis Armentrout of Hampton, Va. for this different country fried steak recipe:
Italian Country-Fried Steak
1 1/2 pounds cubed steak
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups spaghetti sauce
Cut cubed steak into individual-sized portions and place in a large bowl. Pour Italian dressing over steak pieces and toss well. Place flour in a plastic bag or dish; add steak pieces and coat well. In a heavy skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; add steak pieces and fry, turning to brown both sides. Then fry steak for approximately 2 minutes more per side or until a golden-brown crust has formed. Serve with warm spaghetti sauce. Serves 4.
