Steak Fingers

My family isn't really a beef eating family. Truthfully, we prefer chicken most of the time. Occasionally, we do enjoy some sort of beef dish - and this is one of our favorites.

I'm not sure why, but it reminds me of diner food. Maybe as a child I had this at a diner?! I really don't know and I don't know why I associate the two. My family enjoys these Steak Fingers with Mashed Potatoes with a pat of butter and some sort of (usually green) veggie. Again, I'm not sure why that combo - maybe it's just a habit like the Salmon Patties with Fried Potatoes and Creamed Corn thing? No matter, these are good! Serve them with whatever you like! :)

Steak Fingers
Yield: 4 servings

1 lb. boneless beef top round steak
1 tsp. lemon pepper
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup vegetable oil

Place the steak between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound to ¼-in. thickness. Cut the steak into strips. Season with lemon pepper and salt. Drip the strips into the buttermilk and dredge in the flour. Heat 2 tbsp. of the oil on a skillet over medium heat. Add half of the strips and brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining strips. Serve hot.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Oh my goodness! What memories you brought up with these! My dad made us finger steaks at least twice month growing up! I haven't had them in decades! Going on the menu for sure :-) Thanks Jamie!

  2. The lemon pepper seems a nice addition! Pinned, this is something the family will love {especially Dimitri} Thanks for sharing, Jamie !

  3. This is better than my plain old salt and peppered steak. Thank you for sharing.

    We may have met by chance...but we become friends by choice.

  4. I had never heard of Steak Fingers in my life, only Chicken Fingers. I make Schnitzel from pounded steak, which we love at our house, and we do love us that Lemon Pepper, but have only used on chicken or fish.

  5. Steak fingers always make me think of Dairy Queen. When I make them mashed potatoes are also a must, which is strange since DQ doesn't have mashed potatoes, lol.

  6. Hi, Jamie! I was chatting with Evelyn after being out of blogging commission for two weeks time and she told me about you guys' new Sunday hop! Stopping by to follow you via GFC and ended up drooling over the Steak Fingers! I saw them and immediately thought "country cooking." LOL

    Can't wait to link up with y'all Sunday! Would love to have you swing by my blog if you get a chance!

  9. Sounds easy to make and a comfort food. Thank you for sharing your recipe on Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party. Make sure to come back on Sunday to vote for your favorite recipes!

  10. These look really good! They remind me of diner food also! Haven't had Steak Fingers in years! Thanks

  11. Hi Jamie,
    We just love Steak Fingers, they are wonderful. Hope you are having a great weekend and thanks for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday.

  12. We are not big beef eaters but this looks like it would be enjoyed by all. Can't wait to try it.

  13. I haven't had steak fingers in years. Like since I was a child! You made me smile serving the same thing with them every time. We're like that with certain dishes too...and I don't know why! Thank you for coming by this week. I was kind of afraid people would forget since I took some time off.

  14. My hubby would love these! He's a chicken-fried steak fan, and these look pretty similar. Yum! Thanks for sharing at
