Add enough oil to wet the flour.
Stir flour and oil until fully mixed; a bit at a time, whisk in milk, and deglaze the pan.

Stir in salt and pepper.
Return steaks to pan, and cook another 20 minutes over very low heat.
When turning steaks or moving them to the platter, slide a large spatula under the steak so as not to tear off the now moist batter.
