Chicken Fried Steak
Ingredients
  • 1  pound  boneless beef top round steak, cut 1/2 inch thick
  • 3/4  cup  fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  snipped fresh basil or oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil or oregano, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1  egg, beaten
  • 1  tablespoon  milk
  • 2  tablespoons  cooking oil
  • 1  small  onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 2  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3  cups  milk
  •  Salt and black pepper (optional)
Directions

1. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into four serving-size pieces. Place each piece of beef between two pieces of plastic wrap. Working from center to edges, pound meat lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap.

2. In a shallow dish or on waxed paper combine bread crumbs, basil, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In another shallow dish combine egg and the 1 tablespoon milk. Dip meat pieces into egg mixture, then coat with the bread crumb mixture.

3. In a 12-inch skillet cook meat, half at time, in hot oil over medium heat about 6 minutes or until brown, turning once. (Add more oil, if necessary.) Return all meat to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 45 to 60 minutes more or until meat is tender. Transfer meat to a serving platter, reserving drippings in skillet. Keep warm.

4. For gravy, cook onion in reserved drippings until tender but not brown. (Add more oil, if necessary.) Stir in flour. Gradually stir in the 1-1/3 cups milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. If desired, season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve gravy with meat.

5. Makes 4 servings
