6 pieces cube steak, about 2 pounds
salt and pepper
1 C flour, divided
25 Saltine crackers, crushed
1 tsp seasoned salt
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
⅓ C milk
Season cubed steak lightly with salt and pepper.
Place 1/2 cup flour on a plate.
Mix remaining 1/2 cup flour, Saltine crumbs, seasoned salt, and cayenne pepper in a shallow bowl.
Whisk together eggs and 1/3 cup milk in another shallow bowl.
Dredge cubed steak in flour, dip in egg mixture, and then coat with Saltine mixture.
Heat about 1/2-inch oil in a large pan (preferably cast iron) over medium heat.
Cook steak in 2 batches for about 3 minutes per side. Remove steak to a paper towel-lined plate.
Pour oil that is left in pan through a fine-meshed sieve into a heat-proof bowl. Measure out 1/4 cup and return it to pan.
Add flour to pan and cook over medium heat for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk and cook until thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
