Trim steak and pound, if needed, to ½ inch thick; cut into 6 to 8 pieces.
Combine milk, Tabasco sauce and salt in a bowl.
Measure 1 cup of flour into a bowl.
Combine remaining flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in another bowl.
Dip steak into flour, into milk mixture, and then into seasoned flour.

Fry meat until both sides are golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
Drain on paper towels. Serve with cream gravy, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Pour off all but 6 tablespoon of fat from fry pan; add 6 tablespoons flour into pan (use any leftover seasoned flour) and blend well.
