Smothered Steak

This is a recipe that I got from my mother-in-law:

Smothered Steak

1 pkg of tenderized, cube steak
salt and pepper

Flour,salt and pepper, fry in a little oil. Remove, drain off grease. Return meat to skillet. Cover with water. Cover and cook for 1 hour. Remove steak again. whisk about 3 Tbl. flour with cold water. Add to skillet and whisk until smooth. Add a little water or more grease as needed. Add steak back and simmer for a few min. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
Warning: this is not a really healthy fat free meal, but it is so good. Especially since I haven't made it since before Landyn was even born.
