Praise Chicken Fried Steak

1 pound boneless beef top loin
2 cups shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 quart milk
salt and pepper to taste

1 Cut top loin crosswise into 4 (4 ounce)cutlets.
Using a glancing motion, pound each cutlet thinly with a moistened mallet or the side of a cleaver.
2 In a large, heavy skillet, heat 1/2 inch shortening to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
3 While the shortening is heating, prepare cutlets.
In a shallow bowl, beat together egg, buttermilk, salt and pepper.
In another shallow dish, mix together garlic powder and 1 cup flour.
Dip cutlets in flour, turning to evenly coat both sides.
Dip in egg mixture, coating both sides, then in flour mixture once again.
4 Place cutlets in heated shortening.
Cook until golden brown, turning once.
Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
Repeat with remaining cutlets.
5 Using the drippings in the pan, prepare gravy over medium heat.
To 1/2 cup drippings, blend in 1/4 cup flour to form a paste.
Gradually add milk to desired consistency, stirring constantly.
For a thicker gravy add less milk; for a thinner gravy stir in more.
Heat through, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over chicken fried steak.
