Milk Gravy see recipe below)
In a pie plate or shallow dish, combine flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper.
In another pie plate or shallow dish, beat eggs and milk. Coat steaks in flour mixture and then dip into egg mixture. Dredge in flour mixture again, and let stand 2 minutes.
In a large heavy frying pan (I use my
cast iron frying pan) over medium-high heat, cook two prepared cube steaks in 2 tablespoons oil for
approximately 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and cooked as desired. Remove cooked steaks and keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and cube steaks.
Milk Gravy Recipe:
2 tablespoons pan drippings
1 tablespoon all-purpose
2 cups milk, heavy
cream, or evaporated milk, room temperature
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
In the same frying pan (that you cooked the steak in) with 2 tablespoons pan drippings, over medium heat, sprinkle flour over
the oil and blend with a wooden spoon or whisk until smooth.
Whisking or stirring constantly, slowly pour in milk, cream, or evaporated milk; continue stirring, scraping loose browned bits from the bottom and sides of skillet,
until the gravy begins to boil and thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 to 8 minutes or until gravy is thickened to the desired consistency and the flour has lost its raw, pasty taste.
Remove from pan and serve hot with the prepared Chicken-Fried Steak.
