DIRECTIONS

  • In small bowl mix 4 seasonings.
  • Place flour in a flat surfaced dish (save unused flour for smothering).
  • Sprinkle front and back side of each steak piece and rub deep into groves of steak.
  • Heat oil to medium high in skillet (cast iron is best).
  • Dredge each piece in flour, press in with finger tips. Re-dredge in flour again and place carefully in hot oil for 1 minute and then turn back heat to medium.
  • Fry steak 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove, drain on a separate plate.
  • Remove all but 2-3 Tbs of oil, over medium high heat, sprinkle with 3 Tbs flour, whisking until well mixed and roux browns.
  • Add water, bouillon cube and remaining seasoning. Mix until gravy begins to thicken slightly. Test taste for spice as this is the time to adjust (salt or water).
  • Replace steak back in gravy and spread onion rings over the tops.
  • Cover and simmer 30-40 minutes.
