How to Make It

Step 1

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through crackers) in a shallow bowl. Combine buttermilk and egg whites in another shallow bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

Heat canola oil in a cast-iron or other nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until oil shimmers.

Step 3

Coat cube steaks with cracker mixture; dip in buttermilk mixture, then coat again in cracker mixture, pressing into steaks. Use all the cracker mixture.

Step 4

Cook steaks until brown and crispy, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove steaks from pan, and place on a rack over a baking sheet.

Step 5

To prepare gravy, place milk in a medium bowl. Whisk 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper into milk. Pour mixture into pan, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly and scraping pan to loosen browned bits, about 5 minutes or until gravy is thick. Serve gravy over steaks.
