READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 6-8 steaks




  • Trim steak and pound, if needed, to 1/2 inch thick; cut into 6-8 pieces.
  • Combine evaporated milk, Tabasco jalapeno sauce and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl.
  • Measure 1 cup of flour into a second bowl.
  • Combine remaining flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in another bowl.
  • Dip steak into flour, into milk mixture, and then into seasoned flour (repeat this process for an extra thick coating).
  • Set aside until all meat is coated.
  • Heat 1 or 2 inches of oil in a heavy fry pan.
  • Fry meat until both sides are golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve with cream gravy.
  • Cream Gravy:
  • Pour off all but about 6 tablespoons of fat from fry pan; add 6 tablespoons flour into pan (use leftover seasoned flour) and blend well.
  • Allow the flour 'paste' to brown slightly over medium heat for 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Gradually stir in 2-1/2 cups milk.
  • Simmer and stir over medium heat until thickened.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover steaks with gravy when served.
