Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Yes, I agree with the others that regular eggs would work just as well as egg substitutes unless it is a matter of preference. It would be a little less expensive also as regular eggs are much cheaper. Unless the diner is on a low cholesterol diet also, I would stick with just regular eggs.

Can you just use egg white instead of the egg substitute? I would think that would keep it healthy and possibly work, right? This sounds like one of those recipes you keep in the front of your mind so that you can make it on a busy night because you have it memorized. Makes me think of my grandma's cube steak that she made in the oven that made its' own gravy, but in the oven.

is there a substitute for the egg substitute? Thanks

Hi there! You can substitute buttermilk or regular milk for the egg substitute in this recipe, however it may no longer be diabetic-friendly as it would change the provided Nutritional Information.

I found this dish very satisfying. I used wafer thin pork chops instead of beef. Excellent recipe!
