Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Sprinkle 2 pounds cubed steak with salt or meat tenderizer, to taste. With your hands, work the salt or meat tenderizer into steak cubes, and set aside. Pour ? cup peanut (or other) oil into a large skillet and start heating the oil. While the oil is heating, place 1 cup of flour in a plastic zip-lock bag. Then, place a couple of handfuls of salted steak cubes into the plastic bag of flour. Hold the open end of the bag tightly, and shake the bag to coat the steak cubes thoroughly. When the oil in the skillet is sizzling hot (not smoking), take 2 or 3 steak cubes, shake off the excess flour into the plastic bag, and place them carefully into the hot oil. Continue to place coated steak cubes in the skillet, until the bottom of the skillet is covered. Turn the heat down, if the oil is getting overly hot. Shake some ground black pepper over the top of all of the steak cubes. By this time you have one layer of steak cubes in the skillet, the first steak cubes are probably getting brown on the bottom, so watch the carefully. When they are brown on the bottom, turn them, and let them brown on the top. When they are brown on both sides, they will be done in the middle. Remove them from the skillet, and place them on a tray that is covered with paper toweling to drain any excess oil. Repeat this process, until all steak cubes are fried. Remove the steak nuggets from the paper toweling and place them on a nice serving dish. Serve immediately! These are terrific and they really appeal to children, not just adults!!!

I added some garlic salt to the flour. They were good but I wouldn't go out of my way to make them.
