      Chicken Fried Steak with Milk Gravy
      1 pound steak (top round, about 1/2 inch thick, cut into 4 equal portions)
      1/4 cup vegetable oil (or shortening for frying, more or less as needed)
      1 cup buttermilk
      1 tsp Tabasco Sauce
      1 cup all-purpose flour
      1 tsp salt (plus more to taste)
      1/2 tsp black pepper (plus more to taste)
      1 1/2 to 2 cups milk
      Optional: 1 dash cayenne pepper (or to taste)
      Heat the oven to 200° or the “keep warm” setting.
      Using the pointed side of a meat mallet, pound the steaks to tenderize them, then use the flat side of the mallet to pound them to about 1/4-inch thick.
      Pour the shortening or vegetable oil into a deep, heavy skillet to depth of about 1/2-inch to 1-inch.

      Heat the oil to 370°.
      In a shallow bowl, mix the buttermilk and hot pepper sauce.
      In another shallow bowl or pie plate, combine the flour, 1 tsp salt, and the pepper and mix well.
      Dip each steak in the buttermilk, then the flour mixture.
      Reserve 1 1/2 tbs of the flour mixture and set aside.
      Two at a time, deep fry the steaks, turning once, until nicely browned on both sides, about 3 to 4 min. Transfer the steaks paper towels to drain and then place on a rack in a baking pan. Put them in the preheated 200° oven while you prepare the gravy.
      Discard all but 1 1/2 tbs of the fat from the skillet.
      With skillet over low heat, whisk in reserved 1 1/2 tbs flour mixture.

      Stir until smooth and bubbly, scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook, stirring, for 2 min to cook the flour. Whisk in the milk and ground cayenne, if using.

      Bring the mixture to a simmer and continue cooking for about 2 min. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
      Serve the steak with the gravy. Serves 4
