This Italian Breaded Steak is made with shell steaks, olive oil, garlic cloves, dried bread crumbs, parmesan, dried oregano and baked to perfection.


  • 2 shell steaks, cut about 1 inch thick
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Taste the excess fat from the sides of the steak. Combine the oil and garlic in a baking dish and place the steaks in the baking dish, and let them stand for 15 minutes, flip and another 15 minutes.
  2. Mix the bread crumbs, cheese, oregano, salt and pepper together in another shallow dish. Remove the steaks from the oil, letting the oil cling to the steaks. Dip each piece of steak into the bread crumb mixture, patting to coat both sides. Let stand 10 minutes to set the crumbs.
  3. Position a broiler rack 6 to 8 inches from the heat, and preheat the broiler. If the steaks are too close to the heat, the crust will burn. Lightly oil the rack. Place the steak on the rack and broil until the crust is lightly browned, about 3.5 minutes on each side. If the crust begins to scorch, move to the next furthest rack in the oven from the heat source. Turn the steaks and cook on the other side for 3.5 minutes.
    Transfer to a platter and let stand for 3 minutes. Cut across the grain into ½ inch thick slices and serve.
