  • Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of flour and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe, most particularly the gravy. It was thick, and the bacon adds a wonderful flavor. I made this recipe as indicated, along with some "fried" potatoes. My husband and I loved it! Thanks!

    This is very good. I only used one pan though. I fried the bacon, removed and fried the steak in the bacon grease. Then did the rest the same as your recipe. (That's the "Southern" in me I guess, Love that bacon grease!!!)
