"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 to 1 1/2 pounds thin round steak, cut into serving-size portions
1/4 to 1/2 cup shortening, for frying
1 cup flour, divided
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
2 large eggs
1 large sweet onion (Vidalia, Texas Sweet, Walla Walla, etc.), chopped
4 tbsp. butter, divided
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 to 2 cups milk
1 tsp. Beef & French Onion Seasoning or beef bouillon granules
salt and pepper to taste

In a medium skillet over medium-low heat, cook onion in 2 tablespoons of butter until very soft and golden in color, about 30 minutes. Set aside.
Put 1/2 cup flour in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, put 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup cornmeal and seasoned salt. In a third bowl, beat eggs.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt shortening. You should have about 1/4-inch of melted shortening.

Pound steaks to tenderize, then dredge each in flour, dip in egg mixture, then dredge in seasoned flour-cornmeal mixture. Place in hot oil and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until done. Remove steaks; keep warm. Pour off the shortening; add 2 tablespoons of butter and cooked onions. Stir until butter has melted; add flour. Stir flour and onion mixture until smooth; continue cooking for about 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups of milk gradually, stirring constantly. Continue cooking until mixture has thickened. If gravy is too thick, add more milk. Sprinkle with about 1/4 to 1/2-teaspoon Shakers or bouillon, then taste before seasoning with salt and pepper.
Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
