Working with one piece of steak at a time, egg wash then dip it in the seasoned flour, turn and coat both sides well with the flour.
shake off excess flour, and add to pre heated skillet
Add enough oil or shortening to reach about 1/4 inch depth in the pan.
Test the oil to be sure it's hot enough to fry the meat.
place the steak sections in the hot oil, one at a time.
Fry until brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes.
Turn the steak over, let cook for about 3 minutes or until done.
Remove the steak from the oil, place on paper towels to drain.
Prepare the gravy:
Leave about 2 tablespoons of the oil from frying in the pan. Do not discard the brown leftover pan drippings.
Reduce the heat to about medium-low.
Slowly sprinkle the reserved flour into the pan, stirring it into the oil and pan drippings. Let it brown for about one minute, stirring constantly.
Slowly add the 1 cup of warm water,and 1 cup of milk stirring constantly.
Add the Chicken broth and stir well.
Add the milk, stir well and taste.
Add salt, black pepper or more chicken granules to reach desired taste.
Let simmer until mixture thickens. Test by dragging your finger across the bottom of your stirring spoon. If the gravy leaves a trail where your finger wiped gravy away, it's ready to serve. If it's runny, let simmer for another minute or so and test again.
