  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 6 pieces cubed steak


  • Melt vegetable shortening in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Mix together flour, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spread the flour mixture onto both sides of the steak.
  • Place steak in skillet and cook on one side for about 3-5 minutes, or until you notice the meat is browned about half-way through the middle when looking at the side of the meat. Flip the steak carefully so as not to splash any hot grease on yourself. Cook steak on the other side. Remove and allow to stand a few minutes before serving.
