Let's Make It
Cut the meat with the grain into 1 inch thick slices. Pound with meat mallet to tenderize until about 1/2 inch thick. Trim to serving size. Mix seasonings into flour. Place the seasoned flour into a pie pan. Place the eggs into a separate pie pan & whisk. Dredge the meat on both sides in the flour. Once tenderized, dredge the meat again in the flour, followed by the egg and finally in the flour again. Repeat with all the pieces of meat. Place the meat onto a plate and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before cooking.
Place enough of the vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch slope-sided skillet and set over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook each piece on both sides until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes per side. Remove the steaks to a wire rack set in a 9 x 13 cake pan and place into the oven at 300°F. Repeat until all of the meat is browned.
Add the remaining vegetable oil, or at least 1 tablespoon, to the pan. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the flour left over from the dredging. Add the milk and deglaze the pan. Whisk until the gravy comes to a boil and begins to thicken and whisk until the gravy coats the back of a spoon, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste, with more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve the gravy over the steaks.
