  1. Season meat with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper; set aside. In a shallow dish, mix flour with 1 teaspoon of the pepper. Dredge each steak in flour. Dip in beaten egg, then dredge in flour again.
  2. Heat lard in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry steaks 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the dredging flour into oil. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of skillet. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until thickened and bubbly. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons pepper; gravy should be quite peppery.

Can't say we really liked this recipe. For some reason seemed real greasy and left us all with heartburn the rest of the evening =/

Very good comfort-style food. Fried steak in butter, seasoned (simple salt and pepper with a touch of paprika) coating was nice and crusty and I had no problem with it adhering. Doubled the s...

This is a family favorite. Lots of pepper is a MUST! I do sometimes add 1/8 to 1/4 tsp of garlic powder or sometimes a little minced garlic (my Mom's secret ;)) and ALWAYS double the gravy as we...

Very easy and delicious. Instead of making the gravy, I used McCormick Country Gravy mix and added a little pepper. It was great.
