I feel like when I was in college, I’d have this at Denny’s at least once a month after bar time, and sometimes I really miss it.
You start with cubed steaks, then pan fry, then use the drippings to make a pan gravy.
Beef base and stock cubes add flavor and texture to the gravy. I like to use Maggi beef base.
Mix of milk, buttermilk powder, an egg and spices.
Flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
Dip the cubed steak in flour mix, then in the milk/egg mixture, then flour again. Really pat it into the steak.
Heat oil to 325. Fry until browned on each side, about 3-5 minutes per side.
Until beautifully browned.
Drain oil save but 1/4 cup of it, plus the tasty browned bits.
Add 1/4 cup flour and cook for a minute, scraping the browned bits up.
Add milk, stock cubes and beef base and cook until thickened.
And serve with mashed potatoes (of course. I think they’d arrest you if you tried to use rice or something).
I normally don’t add multiple pictures of the same thing (I’m not sure really why people do that on blogs?) but this one was so pretty I had to get the backside in there.
