About this Recipe
- 4 – 8 oz cube steaks
- Magic Salt (See Recipe)
- 1.5 cups whole milk
- ½ cup of heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons of salted butter
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Cup of milk
- 1 ½ cups of flour
- 2 tsp of paprika
- 1 tbsp of Magic salt
1.5 cup vegetable/Canola oil for frying
- Preheat the oven to 225˚F (110˚C).
- Set a steak in the center of a cutting board and cover with a piece of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, pound the steak evenly to ¼-inch (½ cm) thick. Season with Magic Salt on both sides. Repeat with the remaining meat.
- In a wide, shallow dish, whisk together the eggs and 1 cup of milk.
- In a separate shallow dish, mix together the 1 ½ cups of flour, magic salt and paprika.
- Dredge the steaks in the flour mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, letting any excess egg drip off. Coat again in the flour mixture. Set aside for 10-15 minutes, until the coating has dried out a bit.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat until it reaches 375˚F .
- Fry the steaks, 2 at a time, for 3 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Flip and cook on the other side for 3 minutes more, until golden brown and cooked through when the internal temperature reaches 155˚-165˚F.
- Transfer the steaks to a paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet.
- Once all of the steaks are done frying, transfer to the oven while you prepare the gravy.
- Pour the hot oil into a heatproof bowl or old glass jar and let cool before discarding Leave any browned bits in the pan.
- In the same pan, without wiping it out, melt the butter over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of flour, whisking to incorporate.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the roux is a light brown color. Add the heavy cream and remaining milk. Bring to a simmer and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- Ladle the gravy over the steaks and serve with your favorite side dishes.
