Chicken Fried Steak and Creamy Gravy

This is definitely not going to fit into a New Year's diet.
But, hey, at least it's homemade and not a processed food?

I enjoy chicken fried steak every now and then 
because it's a homey comfort food. 
Plus the gravy is one of the first things my mom 
taught me how to make and that's pretty special. 

You Will Need:
(serves 4)
4 cube steaks 
1 cup flour
2 eggs
canola oil
garlic powder
1 1/2 cups milk 
1 cup flour

What To Do:
Heat a small layer of canola oil on medium heat. Season your cube steaks as desired- we sprinkled with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Whisk together eggs in a shallow bowl. Combine flour with seasonings in a separate shallow bowl. 

Dredge each steak in the egg wash, then the flour mixture and repeat. Place steaks in oil and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side. Place cooked steaks on paper towels to drain. 

Return remaining oil to medium heat. Add flour 2 tbsp at a time until you have formed a roux and absorbed all of the oil.  Add milk, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring to combine between each addition, until you have reached your desired consistency. Season well with salt and pepper. Serve hot over steaks and mashed potatoes.

Serve with a salad so you don't feel like such a heifer!
