  • 1 pound boneless beef, cut into four pieces
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped (or two teaspoons dried)
  • salt to taste

  1. Pound steaks to about 1/4" thickness.
  2. Rub both sides with the salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 teaspoon paprika and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.
