Ingredients:  
1 pound round steak, cut into 4 pieces
1 cup vegetable oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 egg, beaten
3 cups, plus 3 Tablespoons, milk
1 1/2 cups, plus 3 tablespoons, flour

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oil in heavy iron skillet, to 360 degrees. With a meat mallet, pound out the meat to 1/4 inch thickness. Season steaks pieces with salt and pepper. Combine the egg with 3 tablespoons of the milk. Put 1 1/2 cups of the flour in a shallow pan and season with salt and pepper. Dredge the steaks in the flour, coating it evenly and tapping of any excess. Drip the steaks in the egg was, coating it completely and letting the excess drip off. Dredge again in the flour, shaking off any excess. Fry the steaks in the hot oil, until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. PAN GRAVY: Carefully pour off the oil except 1/4 cup along with the brown bits. Over medium heat, add the remaining 3 tablespoons flour and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the remaining 3 cups milk, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly. The gravy should be thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. If it is too thick, add a little water. Serve the fried steak and gravy with mashed potatoes and green beans.
