Yield: 1 servings
|½ pounds||Round steak|
|1 teaspoon||Garlic powder|
|\N \N||Oil for cooking|
Heat ¼ inch oil in heavy frying pan to medium high.
Combine 1 cup milk with the egg, whisk to mix. Pour into 9" round shallow pan.
Season 1 cup flour with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sift together into 9" round shallow pan.
Tenderize the round steak well, trimming off excess fat and ligament.
Dip the meat into the egg and milk mixture, then dredge in the seasoned flour, pressing the flour into the meat. Repeat for a crispier coating.
When oil is hot, place the meat into oil, adjusting temp. to allow the meat to cook for 9-12 minutes. This allows additional tenderizing of the meat.
When fried steak is golden brown, remove to drain on paper towels.
Pour off all but 4 tablespoons of the cooking oil from the pan.
Over medium heat, slowly stir in the ¼ cup flour, stirring constantly.
Combine the 1 cup milk and 1 cup water, slowly add to oil/flour mix, stirring constantly. Stirring with a large spatula helps. Loosen brown bits from bottom of pan while stirring, there's great flavor there.
Add salt and pepper to taste, raising heat to bring to a boil. When bubbly, lower heat and continue to stir, simmering for 5 minutes.
It's traditional to serve the meat with mashed potatoes, covering the meat and potatoes with the gravy. Large yeast rolls go great with this meal too.
Well worth the effort!
Enjoy! Jeff Duke
