Annette Funicello's Steak in a Bag
- 2 pounds top sirloin steak, cut 2 1/2 inches thick
- 2 tablespoons garlic spread
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned pepper
- 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Trim fat from steak. Make a paste from garlic spread, vegetable oil, salt and
seasoned pepper. Spread on both sides of steak.
- Combine cheese and bread crumbs; pat on steak. Place steak in brown paper bag
(large enough to fit steak comfortably). Seal loosely with paper clips.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees F and bake steak for 15 minutes longer.
- Unseal bag to serve.
Yield: 6 servings
Afterthoughts: For easy handling, place bag on cookie sheet during baking. Annette
advises, "You can bake steak early in the day, then bake at 425 degrees F just
before serving. The steak is out of this world."
