You don't have to be from the South to enjoy this down-home favorite. We like topping off this easy chicken dinner with some homemade gravy and a side of mashed potatoes and beans for a homestyle dinner worth making again and again. A country dinner is the best kind of dinner!
What You'll Need:
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
- 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1 1/4 teaspoons black pepper, divided
- 1 1/4 pounds beef cubed steak
- 1 egg
- 2 1/4 cups milk, divided
- 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
In a shallow dish, combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Coat steak in flour mixture and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine egg and 1/4 cup milk; mix well. Place bread crumbs in another shallow dish. Dip coated steak into egg mixture, coating completely, then into bread crumbs; set aside. Discard any remaining coating mixture.
In a large deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Add steak and cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until juices run clear and coating is golden brown, turning occasionally. Place on a paper towel-lined platter and keep warm.
Drain off all but 2 tablespoons oil. Stir in remaining flour and brown over low heat. Add remaining salt, pepper, and milk, stirring constantly 3 to 4 minutes, or until gravy thickens.
Place meat on a serving platter and top with gravy. Serve immediately.
If you want to give it some zip, add 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce to the gravy.
