  • DifficultyEasy
210g plus 2 tbsps plain flour
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
8 (110g) tenderised beef round steak*
1 tsp house seasoning, recipe follows
1 tsp seasoning salt
480ml buttermilk
10 2/3 tbsps vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsps salt
480ml buttermilk
1L whole milk
1 bunch green onions or 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
*Cook's Note: have butcher run them through cubing machine.

1) Combine 210g plain flour and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle one side of the meat with the house seasoning and the other side with the seasoning salt, and then dredge the meat in buttermilk and then flour.

2) Heat 8 tablespoons oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add two or four of the steaks to the hot oil and fry until browned, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove each steak to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with the remaining steaks, adding up to 4 tablespoons more oil, as needed.

3) Make the gravy by adding the 2 tablespoons of remaining flour to the pan drippings, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and the salt. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the flour is medium brown and the mixture is bubbly. Slowly add the whole milk, stirring constantly. Return the steaks to the skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and place the onions on top of the steaks. Cover the pan and let simmer for 30 minutes.

4) For the house seasoning, combine all ingredients. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
