imagesMix 1/2 cup of the flour, the salt, and pepper together. Pound the mixture into both
sides of the meat with the edge of a heavy plate or mallet. Cut the meat into serving
pieces. Beat eggs together with the cream. Heat the oil in a heavy cast iron skillet
over moderately high heat. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the flour. Dredge the steaks in
the remainder of the flour, dip in the egg mixture, and then into the cracker crumbs.
Place the steaks in the hot oil and brown well. Turn and brown other side. Reduce

brown paper bags. Keep warm. Add the onion slices to the pan and sauté quickly.
Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of the fat in the skillet and stir in the 3 tablespoons
reserved flour. Stir to incorporate any particles on the bottom of the pan and cook
for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the cream, then the chicken broth. Season the gravy with
worcestershire and hot sauce. Slice the meat across the grain and top with the gravy.
