Minute steaks are ideal for quick easy meals. Because they are thinly cut, usually less than 1/4 inch thick, and pounded tender, these beef round or sirloin steaks cook very quickly.
Lightly season the steaks and dust in flour if desired. Pan fry in a little olive or vegetable oil for one minute, or until brown, turn and brown the other side. Top with your favorite sauce or make a pan gravy.
To make the gravy, add a teaspoon of flour to the pan and stir fry for a minute til light brown. add a little water to the pan and scrape up any bits of fond stuck to the bottom of the pan. Check for seasoning and pour over the steaks. Fried onions or mushrooms are nice additions to the gravy.
