Country Fried Steak with White Gravy
Country Fried Steak With White Gravy has never been so simple! With less than ten ingredients, you can fry up this delicious southern dish with a side of potatoes for all that savory white gravy tonight and make your family smile.
1 cup vegetable oil
1 pound round steak, cut into four pieces
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Old Bay seasoning or Lawry's Seasoning to taste
1 egg, beaten
3 cups plus 3 tablespoons milk
cups plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- Heat the oil in a heavy 9-inch cast iron skillet, to 360 degrees F.
- Using the tenderizing side of a meat mallet, pound out the meat.
- Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste.
- Combine the beaten egg with 3 tablespoons of the milk.
- Put 1 1/2 cups of the flour in a shallow pan and season with salt and pepper. Dredge the steaks in the flour, coating each piece evenly and tapping off any excess.
- Drip the steak in the egg wash, coating it completely and letting the excess drip off.
- Dredge again in the flour, shaking off any excess.
- Fry the steaks in the hot oil, until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
- Carefully pour off the oil, leaving behind about 1/4 cup of the oil along with the brown bits.
- Over medium heat, add the remaining 3 tablespoons flour and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, whisking constantly.
- Add the remaining 3 cups milk, 1/2 cup at a time, whisking constantly. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low.
- Season with salt and plenty of pepper. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, whisking constantly. The gravy should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. If it is too thick, add a little water to thin it.
- Serve the fried steak and gravy with mashed potatoes and green beans.
