Crumb Coated Cube Steaks (Country Fried Steak)

I discovered this recipe a couple months ago & have already made it several times. I promise you will love it. It is especially good when you get fresh, tender cube steaks.

1 egg
1/2 c milk
23 saltines, crushed (I just crush one sleeve of crackers. I have also used Ritz crackers & they were fine)
2/3 c all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp pepper
4 beef cube steaks
3 tbsp canola oil

Gravy (you can also just buy country gravy mix & use that to save sure it is not the sausage flavored one)
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 1/3 c milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and milk. In another shallow bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, flour, salt, baking powder, cayenne and pepper. Dip steaks in egg mixture, then cracker crumb mixture. In a large skillet, cook steaks in oil over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, stir in flour until blended, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with mashed potatoes.
