Chicken-fried steak goes west for the full ranch experience! Baked Ranch Steak marinates the beef in a tangy, creamy, and spicy combination of ranch dressing and Cajun seasoning, so each bite of savory meat is infused with aromatic herbs and mouth-watering creaminess. Then, the steak is coated in a crunchy cornmeal breading and baked until golden brown for extra crispiness. Baked Ranch Steak takes a little time and patience to make, but the results are stunning in their meatiness and heartiness. This is destined to become a favorite in your home!
