Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Pound the steaks if needed. In a large bowl combine the flout, baking powder, baking soda, paprika, cumin, cayenne, salt, and black pepper.
  2. In a smaller bowl mix together the buttermilk, egg, and hot sauce.
  3. Dredge the steak in the flour mixture, then the buttermilk mixture, then the flour mixture again. Set on a baking sheet and let sit 10 minutes.
  4. Heat about 1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet and fry the steaks until golden brown on both sides, about 10 minutes total. Remove from pan and let drain on a wire rack.
  5. Drain the oil from the pan, reserving about 1/4 cup of oil. Return to the pan and whisk in flour, cooking for 2 minutes. Stir in the milk slowly and bring to a simmer, cooking until thick, about 8-10 minutes. Season to taste and spoon over steaks to serve.
Recipe Notes

You might have to work in batches to fit all of the steaks in the pan. Cover with foil to keep warm.

If you do not have buttermilk you can always substitute it by using 1 1/4 cup of milk with 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice. Let sit for 10 minutes before using.
