Southern Steak & Gravy

I've not posted anything here in more than a week. It just seems that for some reason or another I've had little to no computer time. So, here I am with a borrowed recipe!
I like to visit
The Southern Plate when I can. I enjoy trying her recipes. I've tried a few (& they've all turned out great!), & have pictures of them, I just haven't gotten around to posting them yet. Here is a link to her recipe for Southern Steak & Milk Gravy.
I like to make this in my big cast iron pan & serve it right in the pan on the table. Here you can see all the cube steaks before I turn them to coat them with that super good gravy.
This picture isn't so great, you can't really see the meat, but this is how I put it on the table. Trust me, it's more appealing in real life. LOL
I was sure I had a picture of the dinner plate, but I can't find it. I usually serve this with just a big batch of mashed potatoes. I've also served it with fried potatoes. YUM.

Southern Steak and milk Gravy
4 Pieces Cubed Steak (I use 6 steaks)
Place enough oil (Jane whispers that you can use ***bacon grease***) in a pan to just coat the bottom, put that on medium heat while you prepare your steak. In a bowl, place 1 C flour and add 1/4 tsp salt and 1/ 4 tsp pepper (more if you prefer). Stir that up. Dip each piece of steak into flour on both sides to get it coated well. Place each piece of steak in pan and cook until good and browned on both sides. Remove steak to a plate while you make your gravy.
Place about 1/4 C flour into skillet with meat drippings. Add a little more salt and pepper and stir this over medium heat until the flour is slightly browned (just a few minutes). Slowly pour in 1 1/2 Cups of milk, stirring constantly. Continue stirring, with a wire whisk to help with lumps, over low heat until thickened and there are no lumps. This will happen rather quickly. Add a little more milk if you prefer thinner gravy. Return steak to the pan and turn to coat with gravy on both sides.
Serve steak and gravy together in a bowl or serve gravy on the side to go with Mashed potatoes.
