Southern Steak and Milk Gravy


  • 4 Pieces Cubed Steak
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour plus about 1/4 cup more to thicken gravy
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk approximately


  • Place enough oil in a pan to just coat the bottom, put that over medium heat while you prepare your steak.
  • In a bowl, place 1 cup flour, add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/ 4 teaspoon 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 heated pan and cook until good and browned on both sides. Remove steak to a plate while you make your gravy.
  • Place about 1/4 cup 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 the lowest heat setting 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.
