What's For Dinner Monday 02/23/09

Steak Fingers, Country Gravy, Smothered Potatoes, Green Beans And Steamed Carrots.

Steak Fingers

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 pound round steak. I use Cutlets
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour for coating

Tenderize steak by pounding with a mallet. (no need if you use cutlets) Cut into 3 inch long strips.
Combine egg, milk, salt and pepper in a shallow dish, whisk until well blended.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1/3 cup oil (or just enough to cover the bottom of the pan).
Coat steak pieces in flour. Shake off excess. Then dip in the egg mixture and again in flour.
Fry the strips in the hot oil until golden brown; about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb oil.

Smothered Potaotes

5 red potatoes, peeled and cubed
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup all-purpose flour for coating
1/2 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water

Season potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. Place flour in a shallow dish or bowl; coat potatoes with flour. Add onion to potato/flour mixture and set aside.
Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot add potato/onion mixture and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
When mixture has browned, reduce heat to low, add water and cover skillet. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until tender. Sometimes I fry a little bacon in the pan first for flavor...and add extra onion.
