pan fried round steak

it was such a beautiful weekend so we spent all of our time outside. Yay for weirdly awesome texas winter weather!

One of my favorite dishes growing up was chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and cream gravy. Totally Texan right?! This recipe is not quite chicken fried steak only because I don’t double flour the steak or dip in milk before flouring. I’ll share that recipe another time.

pan fried round steak

1 package round steak
1/2 cup flour
Salt
Pepper
Oil, for frying
________________________

Fill skillet with with frying oil, about 1/8-1/4 full and begin to heat on medium heat.

Salt and pepper each side of round steak. Put flour on a small plate. Flour each side of steak in flour, coating nicely.

Once oil is heated (i test by putting a few drops of cool water in it), place steak in skillet. Fry each side for 2-3 minutes and flip. Continue evenly cooking each side until steaks or golden brown and juices run out clear.

Place cooked steaks on a paper or pan lined with a paper towel to absorb excess grease.

For mouth watering perfection, serve with cream gravy.

In a small bowl mix together flour, salt and pepper.

Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add flour mixture to melt butter and stir until smooth with lumps.

Slowly pour in milk, continuing to stir over heat. Sauce with heat and begin to thicken.

Serve over steak and potatoes! Enjoy!
