Equipment

  • 2 shallow dish
  • Mallet
  • 12 Inch Skillet
  • Baking Sheet
  • Whisk

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds beef bottom round (with excess fat trimmed off)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

Gravy:

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Trim excess fat from from beef. Cut the meat with the grain into 1/2-inch thick slices.  Season each piece on both sides with the salt and pepper.  Place the flour into a pie pan.  Place the eggs into a separate pie pan.  Dredge the meat on both sides in the flour.  Pound meat to tenderize, until each slice is 1/4-inch thick.  Once tenderized, dredge the meat again in the flour, followed by the egg and finally in the flour again.  Repeat with all the pieces of meat.  Place the meat onto a plate and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before cooking.
  • Place enough of the vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch skillet and set over medium-high heat.  Once the oil begins to simmer, add the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook each piece on both sides until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes per side.  Remove the steaks to a baking sheet or pan and place into the oven.  Repeat until all of the meat is browned.
  • Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to the pan used to cook steaks.  Whisk in the flour.  Add the chicken broth to the pan.  Whisk until the gravy comes to a boil and begins to thicken.  Add the milk and whisk until the gravy reaches desired consistency, approximately 5 to 10 minutes.  Season to taste, with more salt and pepper, if needed.  Serve the gravy over the steaks.
