  1. 1. Heat the shortening in a deep skillet.

  2. 2. Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. Stir together the baking powder, baking soda, pepper, and salt in a separate shallow bowl; stir in the buttermilk, egg, and Tabasco Sauce.

  3. 3. Dredge each steak first in the FLOUR, then in the batter, and again in the flour. Pat the flour onto the surface of each steak so they are completely coated with dry flour.

  4. 4. Fry the steaks until evenly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place fried steaks on a plate with paper towels to drain.

  5. Gravy Directions

  6. (If using the packaged gravy, prepare as directed)

  7. In a small saucepan, whisk together the flour and milk over medium heat. Bring the gravy to a slow boil and cook until thick, about 6 to 7 minutes. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Spoon the gravy over the steaks to serve.
