  5. Dredge them in the flour mixture until evenly coated.
  6. Dip them in the egg mixture, and then coat them again with the flour, shaking off excess.
  7. Gently slide one steak into the hot oil after it’s reached 350F degrees.
  8. Cook for about 5 minutes, then carefully turn so as not to break the coating, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  9. The batter should be nicely browned.
  10. Drain on paper towels, and keep warm in a 200F oven while you cook the remaining 3 steaks.
