    How to make it

  1. 1. STEP

    Place 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup milk, and eggs in 3 separate shallow bowls in the working area.

    Brown the cube steaks on each side, about 8-10 minutes total cooking time; remove from heat and set the steaks aside.

  8. 8. STEP

    Drain all but 1 tbsp oil (if any- I dont usually have any, but the steaks are less greasy with less oil) from the pans.

    Add enough butter to the pan to equal 3 tbsp along with the oil.

  10. 10. STEP

    Melt the butter and add 3 tbsp flour and stir with a whisk to make a roux, deglazing the bottom of the pan, and cook for a few minutes on LOW heat; do not burn.
