Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 lb of good quality round steak or sirloin steak (calculate about 1/3 to 1/4 pound per person)
1 cup flour (or more)
1/2 cup soy sauce (Lite is good, I find regular soy sauce to be too salty)
fresh coarse ground black pepper, to taste
Cut up Round Steak or Sirloin Steak into finger-sized pieces (about 1" or so in diameter, but no thinner or the meat will cook too fast), about 1/3 to 1/4 pound per person.
(To make slicing easier, place the meat in the freezer for about 30 minutes before slicing.).
Dip the Steak Fingers into the Soy Sauce, then dredge in the flour. (You can use a plastic bag for the flour-dipping part.).
Repeat Step 3, then place all the meat on a plate or platter. (At this point, if I want the pieces to turn out especially rare, I put them back into the freezer for a bit before cooking.).
When you get a plateful of breaded Steak Fingers prepared, quickly place them into a frying pan of heated vegetable oil one at a time. They should really sizzle as soon as you drop them into the oil. As soon as the entire plateful of meat is in the oil, begin turning the pieces. As soon as you have finished turning all the pieces, begin taking them out to drain on a paper towel covered plate. Sprinkle with cracked pepper and serve over hot rice with a salad.
NOTE: The entire frying process should only take a few minutes. DO NOT LEAVE THE STOVE OR THEY WILL OVERCOOK. The meat may turn out tough if it is cooked well done.
P.S. These steak fingers heat well the next day for lunch, just so long as they are not cooked well done to begin with.
