"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

Ingredients:  
4 (1/2 pound) beef cube steaks
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon black pepper
teaspoon salt
1 cups buttermilk
1 egg
1 Tablespoon hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups vegetable shortening for deep frying
cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Pound the steaks to about inch thickness. Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. Stir together the baking powder, baking soda, pepper and salt in a separate shallow bowl; stir in the buttermilk, egg, Tabasco Sauce and garlic. Dredge each steak first in the flour, then in the batter, and then again in the flour. Pat the flour onto the surface of each steak so they are completely coated with dry flour.

Heat the shortening in a deep cast iron skillet to 325. Fry the steaks until evenly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place the fried steaks on a plate with paper towels to drain. Drain the fat from the skillet, reserving cup of the liquid and as much of the solid remnants as possible.

Return the skillet to medium-low heat with the reserved oil. Whisk the remaining flour into the oil. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release solids into the gravy. Stir in the milk, raise the heat to medium and bring the gravy to a simmer, cook until thick, 6 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the gravy over the steaks to serve.
