SERVES: 8-10




  • Sprinkle meat tenderizer on both sides of steaks Prepare coating by mixing salt, pepper, and paprika into flour with a fork Beat eggs in a mixing bowl and stir in the milk Heat the oil/shortening at medium heat while you assemble the steaks.
  • If you have a large skillet you can fry more than one at a time.
  • Use enough oil/shortening so it covers the bottom of the skillet by 1/2 inch.
  • Dip each steak first in flour, then in egg&milk, then in flour, back in egg&milk, final dip in flour and then set carefully in the hot oil.
  • fry for about 10 min.
  • then turn steak over-be careful!
  • The steaks are heavy and you don't want to splatter hot oil everywhere!
  • If you have some metal tongs, they come in handy for this job, paired with a fork to lift the steak enough to get a firm grip on it.
  • Fry the other side for about 5 min. until golden, then use tongs/fork to lift onto a paper-toweled plate to drain.
  • Transfer 2-4 tbsp. grease from frying pan to sauce pot, heat at medium setting.
  • Make a roux by mixing 1/4 c. flour into the hot grease with a fork, cooking until golden brown.
  • Add milk and stir mixture often until it bubbles and thickens to your liking.
  • Salt and pepper the gravy.
  • Serve gravy over steaks.
