|Boneless beef round steak/1 pound cubed beef steaks||1 Pound, trimmed, cut into 4 pieces, and pounded 1/4 inch thick|
|Black pepper||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Egg white||1 Large|
|Vegetable oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Unsalted butter/Margarine||1 Tablespoon|
|Green onion and tops||2 , sliced to make 1/4 cup|

1. Season the steaks with the pepper and salt. In a small shallow bowl, beat the whole egg, egg white, and milk. Dip the steaks into this mixture, then into the flour, shaking off any excess.
2. In a heavy 12-inch skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the steaks and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a warm platter and cover with foil.
3. To prepare the gravy: In the same skillet, melt the butter over moderately high heat. Add the green onions and saute for 3 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk the milk and flour until smooth, add the mixture to the skillet with the remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes or until the gravy has thickened slightly, then spoon over the steaks. Serve with Cajun Corn.
