Serves: 4Hands-on: 30 minutesTotal: 30 minutesDifficulty: Medium
- 1 1⁄2 lbs. round steak
- 1 cup plus 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, divided
- 3⁄4 tsp. salt
- 1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1⁄2 cup beef broth
- Cut steak into 4 portions. Place between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, flatten to about 1⁄2-inch thickness.
- In a large, shallow bowl, combine 1 cup flour with salt and pepper. Dredge steaks in seasoned flour. Dip in beaten egg, then dredge again in flour mixture.
- Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet. Using tongs, put steaks in oil. Cook steaks, turning once to brown both sides. Lower heat to medium-low, cover, and continue to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until steaks are cooked through. Move steaks to paper towels on a warm platter; cover with foil.
- Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of the oil and add butter. Add remaining 3 tablespoons flour, stirring and scraping the bottom of the skillet to loosen any browned bits. Cook flour, stirring for 1 minute. Stir in milk and broth; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Serve steaks with gravy.
