"Tired of the same old chicken nuggets? Give these a try! Feel free to 'play' with the seasonings, but this is how my family likes them. Serve hot with barbeque sauce or salsa for dipping."

  1. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, beat together the egg and milk. In a resealable plastic bag, mix the flour, mesquite seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Dip the steak pieces in the egg mixture, then place in the plastic bag, seal, and shake to coat.
  3. In the hot oil, fry the coated steak pieces in small batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

These were pretty good. They were a different version of chicken nuggets, but with cube steak. I will try this again.
