How to Make Country-Fried Steak
1In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs and 2/3 cup milk.
2Whisk in 3/4 cup flour and 1 teaspoon salt.
3Pour cracker crumbs into a soup plate or pie pan.
4Dip steaks first into the egg mixture and then into the cracker crumbs.
5Press crumbs into steaks.
6In a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil.
7Place prepared steaks in the heated skillet, and fry for 6 minutes on one side.
8Add the remaining two tablespoons oil, and fry 6 minutes on the other side.
10Prepare gravy: Stir 1/4 cup flour into drippings in the skillet.
11Add enough oil to wet the flour.
12Stir flour and oil until fully mixed; a bit at a time, whisk in milk, and deglaze the pan.
13Add onions, and after the milk comes to a boil, cook 1 minute longer.
14Stir in salt and pepper.
15Return steaks to pan, and cook another 20 minutes over very low heat.
16When 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.
17Spoon gravy over steaks, and serve.
