That delicious old-country taste right at home. Always a big hit. Whip up some mashed potatoes and even some peas and carrots and you've got a whole meal ready to go! Amount of left-over mixture depends on how evenly and how thoroughly you coat each steak. Tweaking and experimenting will be required to nail down a better proportion ratio so that there is less mix left over.

Ingredients

Steak:

  • cup milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ cups crushed saltine crackers

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 6 (5 ounce) beef cube steaks

Gravy:

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup minced onion

  • 2 ¾ cups milk

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Beat 2/3 cup milk and eggs together in a bowl. Whisk crackers, 3/4 cup flour, and 1 teaspoon salt together in a shallow bowl.

  2. Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  3. Dip each steak into the milk-egg mixture; transfer to cracker mixture and press to coat evenly.

  4. Fry coated steaks in the hot oil until browned, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Transfer cooked steaks to a serving platter, retaining drippings in the skillet.

  5. Stir 1/2 cup flour into steak drippings until dissolved and pasty, 3 to 4 minutes. Cook and stir onion into flour mixture until evenly coated, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour 2 3/4 cup milk into onion mixture; cook and stir until gravy is smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup oil to gravy; cook and stir until incorporated and gravy is boiling, about 1 minute. Season gravy with 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper; serve alongside steak.
