  2. If you have a large skillet you can fry more than one at a time.
  3. Use enough oil/shortening so it covers the bottom of the skillet by 1/2 inch.
  4. Dip each steak first in flour, then in egg&milk, then in flour, back in egg&milk, final dip in flour and then set carefully in the hot oil.
  5. fry for about 10 min.

  7. The steaks are heavy and you don't want to splatter hot oil everywhere!
  8. If you have some metal tongs, they come in handy for this job, paired with a fork to lift the steak enough to get a firm grip on it.
  9. Fry the other side for about 5 min. until golden, then use tongs/fork to lift onto a paper-toweled plate to drain.
  10. Transfer 2-4 tbsp. grease from frying pan to sauce pot, heat at medium setting.
  11. Make a roux by mixing 1/4 c. flour into the hot grease with a fork, cooking until golden brown.
  12. Add milk and stir mixture often until it bubbles and thickens to your liking.
  13. Salt and pepper the gravy.
  14. Serve gravy over steaks.
