DIRECTIONS

  • FOR THE STEAKS:
  • Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper evenly over steaks. Combine cracker crumbs, 1 cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, garlic powder, red pepper, and baking powder.
  • Whisk together 3/4 cup milk and eggs.
  • Dredge steaks in cracker mixture; dip in milk mixture, and dredge again in cracker mixture.
  • Pour oil into a 12-inch skillet; heat to 360° (use a candy thermometer to measure the heat of the oil).
  • Fry steaks 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove steaks to a wire rack in a jelly-roll pan. Keep steaks warm in a 225° oven. Carefully drain hot oil, reserving cooked bits and 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet.
  • FOR THE GRAVY:
  • Whisk together remaining 4 cups milk, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1 teaspoon black pepper.
  • Add 1/4 cup flour to drippings in the skillet and cook over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add milk mixture to roux in skillet; cook, whisking constantly, over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.
  • Serve gravy with steaks. Garnish, if desired.
