Marinade

Step

In a large bowl, using a whisk, combine ½ a cup of Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 a teaspoon pepper, 3 tablespoon whole wheat flour, 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, and 1 tablespoon water.

Steak

Step

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step

Add the 4 buffalo Swiss steaks to the bowl of marinade. Make sure each steak is well covered in the marinade.

Step

Marinade the steak for 20 minutes.

Step

In a shallow bowl, combine 1 cup of cracker meal, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 2 tablespoons ground flax seed. Mix well.

Step

Add four tablespoons olive oil to a baking pan.

Step

Take the steak from the marinade, removing any excess marinade, and dredge the steaks in the cracker meal mixture. Place the dredged steaks on the baking pan.

Step

Bake the steaks for 15 minutes, or until cooked through. Once the steak is done, remove from the oven and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Gravy

Step

While the steaks are cooking, make the gravy. In a medium-sized pot, on medium high heat, add 3/4 cup chicken stock, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 2 chopped portabello mushrooms, 1 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt.

Step

Bring the mixture to a boil. Then reduce the heat to a simmer.

Step

In the meantime in a separate small bowl combine 3/4 cup of milk with 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch; mix well to dissolve the cornstarch. Make sure there are no lumps.

Step

Add the milk mixture to the simmering chicken stock; stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Simmer the gravy until thick and delicious.

Step

Serve one steak per person topped with the thickened mushroom gravy. Serve alongside your favorite healthy side dishes, like steamed green beans, or a fresh salad.
