How to make it
- Whisk eggs and 2 cups mild in a bowl, reserve.
- Mix 2 teaspoons of the seasoning and 2 cups flour in a bowl, reserve.
- Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet to 350
- Dredge each beef cutlet in flour
- dip in egg wash, let extra drip off
- Dredge in flour again, shake off extra flour
- Use LONG tongs to lower into oil
- Cook until golden brown avout 3-4 minutes, flip cook another 3 minutes remove with a spider, place on paper towel to drain
- Cook all, keep warm
- Drain all but 3 tablespoons oil from skillet.
- Heat the oil over medium stir in the 1/4 cup flour, keep stirring... make a WHITE roux.
- Gradually add the remaining 2 cups milk, slowly . Stir until it is as thick as you like.
- Remove from heat season with Worcestershire, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
- Place a cutlet on each plate, drench with gravy. Serve with potatoes and veggie ..
- Now when they make it there.... they deep fry it.. I do the same at home. They also make the gravy 16, gallons at time and add roasted bone marrow to that... I have used the packaged white gravy that I get from a restaurant supply company or Sam’s as it speeds things up, Just season it up like listed above. But, this is how they listed it and I wanted to share...
- YOU CAN MAKE THESE, FREEZE ON A WAXED PAPER LINED COOKIE SHEET. WHEN FROZEN PUT IN ZIP BAG. DO NOT THAW TO FRY. ADD 2-4 MINUTES IN A DEEP FRYER.
- So take off your boots, grab a Lone Star beer and ENJOY LIFE! And if your down Texas way.... stop in and try the REAL thing!
