1) Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper evenly over steaks.

2) In a large bowl, combine saltine cracker crumbs, 1 cup flour, baking powder, red pepper, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Mix well.

3) In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, 3/4 cup milk and a pinch of salt.

4) Dredge steaks in cracker mixture, dip in milk mixture and dredge again in cracker mixture. Make sure steaks are thoroughly coated.

5) Pour oil into a 12-inch skillet and heat to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Fry steaks for 3 to 4 minutes, turn and continue frying for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel lined plate or wire rack.

6) Carefully drain hot oil from skillet, reserving cooked bits and 1 tablespoon of drippings in skillet. Whisk together remaining 4 cups milk, 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Add milk mixture to skillet, whisking constantly, over medium-high heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until it becomes a thick gravy.
