Now Country Fried Steak is just not complete without adding homemade Milk Gravy to the top!! It’s actually a lot easier than you think!! So don’t pour out that grease that is left over just yet in the pan. Take a look at your pan…. you will need enough oil in the bottom that when you pour the flour in you make a paste.

Homemade Milk Gravy
- 2 Cups Milk
- 1/4 Cup Flour
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- It’s always best to make the milk gravy in the pan that you cooked the country fried steak in (I use an cast iron skillet). The oil has all the flavor from the meat in it and tastes great in the milk gravy. If your oil in your pan is pretty much gone you may have to add in a little more. You will need to pour the 1/4 cup of flour in the pan and mix it with the oil. If it does not make a really thick paste then add a little more oil until it does.
- Cook past on low heat for about 3 minutes. Then turn up heat to med. to med-high. Add in 2 cups milk and salt and pepper to taste. Cook stirring constantly with wire whip until gravy is to desired consistency. Enjoy!
