Steak Fingers

We like to buy grass-fed beef, and with a side of beef comes some weird cuts I never know what to do with.

Like ROUND STEAK.

There are just no good recipes that use round steak, trust me, I’ve Googled it many a time.

That all just changed, and from now on, I will be making THIS recipe from Pioneer Woman:

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Tenderized Round Steak Or Cube Steak, Cut Into 1-inch Strips
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • Canola Oil And Butter For Frying
  • 2 cups Milk (additional)
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Combine flour, seasoned salt, pepper, and cayenne in a dish.

Whisk together milk and eggs in a separate dish.

To bread the meat, first dredge in flour, then dip quickly in egg mixture, then put back into the flour to coat on both sides. Continue until all the meat is breaded.

Heat canola oil with 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Fry steak strips 4 or 5 at a time, turning midway through. When golden brown, remove from the pan to a paper towel-lined plate. Continue until all the meat is done. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

To make the gravy, pour off all the grease from the pan. Add 1/4 cup of the grease back in, then sprinkle on 2 to 4 tablespoons of the flour mixture (or you can use fresh flour.) Whisk mixture till it becomes a paste (add more flour if you need to) and cook the paste over medium-low heat until it’s deep golden brown. Pour in milk, whisking constantly. Allow the gravy to cook and thicken, whisking regularly and adding more milk if it seems too thick right off the bat.  Season gravy with salt and pepper.

Serve with mashed potatoes, green beans and whole wheat rolls.

Yummo!  I doubled this, so we used the whole wheat rolls the next day, and had the leftovers as Steak Finger Sandwiches. Delish!
