  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup refrigerated prepared blue cheese dressing
  • 1/4 cup dairy sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon green hot pepper sauce


Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper is shallow dish. Whisk egg and water together in shallow bowl until blended. Combine bread crumbs, 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder and red pepper in separate shallow dish.

Cut beef steaks into a total of 4 serving-size pieces. Place between sheets of waxed paper; pound to 1/4 inch thickness. Dip each steak in flour mixture to coat both sides lightly; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in bread crumb mixture to coat.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place 2 steaks in skillet; cook 5 minutes or until coating is crisp and golden and beef is medium rare (145°F), turning once. (Do not overcook.) Remove steaks; keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil, if needed, and steaks.

Meanwhile combine sauce ingredients in small bowl. Serve with steaks.
