How to make it

  • Season both sides of all steaks with salt(or blend) and black pepper.
  • Beat eggs in large shallow pan or pie plate
  • in another pie plate, combine flour with cayenne and more salt and pepper
  • In large cast iron or other skillet, cover bottom with oil and bring to a medium-medium high heat
  • Dredge steaks in egg, then flour mixture, then egg, then flour, again
  • Let rest while oil comes to temperature.
  • Fry steaks, 2 at a time on each side 4-5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper bags or over wire rack and keep warm while finishing all steaks and while making gravy.
  • Once steaks are all browned and warming, add 3T of butter to pan and stir to combine. Add about 1/4 cup of left over flour from dredging to pan and whisk together.
  • Add chicken stock SLOWLY to pan whisking entire time.
  • Whisk over medium heat for about 5 minutes while flavors combine and gravy thickens.
  • Add milk, slowly, then fresh ground black pepper and parsley and continue to stir to combine.
  • Serve steaks topped with gravy.
  • *this amount of gravy is assuming mashed taters will be served with steaks...if you don't, for some reason, you may want to cut the gravy ingredients in half.....or, just make the taters ;)

    April 1/16 Family loved this recipe. I used sirloin tip steaks which I did tenderize with my mallet. The gravy made lot for us even with having mashed tatters. Yes I will be making again but may cut the gravy in 1/2. LOL will freeze the gravy as I know I will be able to use the rest sometime next week. RIP Keni you are missed.

    LOVED this!! The gravy was awesome!!! Served it over the MP as well! I did pound the heck out of the steak and still found it slightly tough but not a big deal at all! I'll just have to do it more next time. I did do more cayenne than called for and it turned out pretty spicy...but really good! Thanks so much!

    I made this last night for the recipe swap. The only thing I added was some chopped portabella mushrooms to the gravy, but otherwise it was a simple recipe to make, and it came out delicious. Now I just have to learn how to make your biscuits to dip in that gravy!

    My husband's favorite meal...only difference is I don't usually use and egg wash, just the flour and I use all milk in the gravy. Glad to see I'm doing it close to how it's done in the South. I'll have to try the egg wash on mine next time to see if it will increase the amount of breading on the steaks and the 'crispies' (as my hubby calls them) in the pan. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. - Natalie
