Classic Country Fried Steak
Country-fried steak is one of those recipes that never gets old. When served with mashed potatoes and green beans, this is the ultimate home-cooked meal.
1 1/2 lb. sirloin steaks, use a mallet to tenderize
Trim visible fat from meat and cut into 4 equal serving pieces. Mix flour, salt and pepper in a shallow, wide bowl and dredge each piece of meat in it, coating well on both sides. Heat grease or oil until hot but not smoking in a heavy, wide skillet with a lid. Brown the meat pieces on both sides, turn heat down a bit, cover and let steak fry like chicken for 15 to 20 minutes, until done. Remove cover and let steak crisp for about 5 minutes. Take steak from the pan and drain. Leave about 2 tbsp. of drippings and all the browned flecks of crust in the pan. Turn the heat a bit lower, sprinkle Wondra flour into the drippings and stir to keep from lumping while it browns. Slowly add half and half, stirring. Let it cook until thick, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add seasoning and return the steaks to the gravy and cook an additional 5 minutes.
