Country Fried Steak n Gravy

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 (4 ounce) cube steaks

38 saltine crackers, crushed

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons salt, divided

1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper, divided

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

4 3/4 cups milk

2 eggs

3 1/2 cups peanut oil

Directions

1. SPRINKLE salt and pepper evenly over steaks. Set aside.

2. COMBINE cracker crumbs, 1 cup flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and red pepper.

3. WHISK together 3/4 cup milk and eggs. Dredge steaks in cracker crumb mixture; dip in milk mixture, and dredge in cracker mixture again.

4. POUR oil into a 12-inch skillet; heat to 360 degrees. (Do not use a nonstick skillet.) Fry steaks 10 minutes. Turn and fry 4 to 5 more minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack on a jellyroll pan. Keep steaks warm in a 225 degree oven. Carefully drain hot oil, reserving cooked bits and 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet.

5. WHISK together remaining 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and 4 cups milk. Pour mixture into reserved drippings in skillet; cook over medium-high heat, whisking constantly, 10 to 12 minutes, or until thickened. Serve gravy with steaks and mashed potatoes.
