Steak and Gravy:
1 1/2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
8 (4-ounce) beef round steak (have butcher run them through cubing machine)
1 tsp. House Seasoning, recipe follows
1 tsp. seasoning salt
2 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 quart whole milk
1 bunch green onions, or 1 medium yellow onion, sliced

Paula's House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder
Mix all ingredients well. Store in an air tight container.

Basic Biscuits:
1 package yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. sugar
3/4 cup solid shortening (recommended: Crisco)
2 cups buttermilk

Steak and Gravy: Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/4 tsp. of pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1 side of the meat with the House Seasoning and the other side with the seasoning salt, and then dredge the meat in buttermilk and then flour. Heat 1/2 cup oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2-4 of the steaks to the hot oil and fry until browned, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Remove each steak to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with the remaining steaks, adding up to 1/4 cup more oil, as needed.

Make the gravy by adding the 2 tbsp. remaining flour to the pan drippings, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon. Stir in the remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper, and the salt. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the flour is medium brown and the mixture is bubbly. Slowly add the whole milk and stir constantly until thickened.

Biscuits: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside. Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening. Add yeast and buttermilk and mix well. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter and place on greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Split biscuits in half and top with country fried steak and smother with gravy.
