BIFE A' MILANESA (Breaded beefsteak)

This is pronounced "Beefy." I know that sounds ridiculous, but that's really what the Brazilians call it! LOL And I know this is the same pic as the Feijao, but I serve them together. They just sort of go together. It's one of our favorite Brazilian meals! This is so easy - it's just breaded cube steak, but it's really tasty with the Feijao (Fay-jown).

4 cube steaks
olive oil
Thyme leaves
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Season the steaks with the salt, pepper, garlic and thyme. In a separate bowl, to the flour, add 1 Tblsp of thyme leaves. Roll the steaks, coating both sides well, in the seasoned flour.
Fry in hot oil over med - high, for about 10 to 15 minutes or until done. Remove steaks from skillet, drain on paper towel and serve with Feijao.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. No I've never made Brazilian rice. I had it, when we visited my sister-in-law in Brazil a few years ago. I know it is delicious. If you have a recipe, that would be an awesome addition to this meal! Thank you!

THANKS cupcake! I'm going to try that the next time I make rice. I don't need to wait until we make Brazilian. That sounds really good.

I made this last night for dinner, along with the Brazilian rice and feijeo! It was such a huge hit with my family! It's such an easy dish to "whip up" and it tastes so good! It's so nice to have new things to try! THANKS STARR!!!! :) My husband is loving you too! :) You've "re-lit" my spark for cooking!
