Steak:

⅓ c. Flour

Directions:
Season cube steaks with season salt & pepper. Season 3 cups of flour with season salt & pepper.

Beat 2 eggs, pour onto plate. Place the seasoned flour on separate plate. Heat oil over medium-high heat, drop a few sprinkles of flour in the oil, when it sizzles it is ready to cook the steak.

Dip the steak into flour, egg, flour and lay gently into oil. It should not brown right away, if it does the fire is too hot. Cook the meat approximately 3-4 minutes on each side.

If you need to keep the steaks warm while making the gravy, put them on a wire rack on cookie sheet and put in oven @ 250

GRAVY:
There should be at least 1/4 cup of oil/dripping in pan, sprinkle 1/3 cup flour into oil, using a wire whisk, mix the flour creating a golden-brown paste (rue). Add more flour if it looks overly greasy; add more oil it it becomes to pasty/clumpy. Keep cooking the rue until it reaches a golden-brown color. Pour in 3-4 cups of milk, whisking constantly. Add pepper & salt to taste, cook until gravy is smooth and thick, usually 5 minutes.
Serve with mashed potatoes
