This is quick and easy. You can use on any steak including venison or elk. The crispy crust keeps the juices and flavors in the meat,
- 1 cup milk (or 1/2 cup evaporated milk and 1/2 cup cold water)
- 4 large steaks
- 3⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1 cup white flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground red chili pepper
- In large flat pan, pour milk, add steaks.
- Preheat oil in large frying pan.
- Turn over the steaks so both sides are coated with milk. Then drain.
- In large flat pan or plate, add flour, salt, cumin and chili pepper. Stir to mix.
- Coat each steak with flour mixture both sides.
- Fry medium high heat until coating is medium to yellow brown. Turn once until both sides are nice and brown.
- You may have to add more oil depending on the size of the steaks.
- Note: You can use the soaking milk and the balance of the flour mixture to make a gravy if you wish, just add more milk, flour, other seasonings as you wish; and wisk until bubbling.
Flavour was good, and the steak was cooked to an excellent medium rare. The crust did seem to be asking for a little extra kick. I'd be tempted to add some extra chili, or even some cayenne. A little salt and freshly ground black pepper accented it beautifully, though. I never tried the gravy, so I might give that a shot next time. Thanks for posting!
