DIRECTIONS

  • Trim visible fat from meat and cut into 4 equal serving pieces.
  • Mix flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow, wide bowl and dredge each piece of meat in it, coating well on both sides.
  • Heat grease or oil until hot but not smoking in a heavy, wide skillet with a lid.
  • Brown the meat pieces on both sides, turn heat down a bit, cover and let steak fry like chicken for 15 to 20 minutes, until done. Remove cover and let steak crisp for about 5 minutes.
  • Take steak from the pan and drain.
  • Leave about 2 Tbsp of drippings and all the browned flecks of crust in the pan.
  • Turn the heat a bit lower, sprinkle Wondra flour int o the drippings and stir to keep from lumping while it browns.
  • Slowly add half and half, stirring.
  • Let it cook until thick, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Taste and add seasoning, if needed.
  • Return the steaks to the gravy and cook an additional 5 mins or so.
  • Serve on plate, Mashed potatoes, maybe some green beans with country ham.
