    Source of Recipe

    southern living
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
    2 teaspoons pepper, divided
    1 to 1 1/2 pounds cubed round steaks
    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
    1/8 teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup water
    Vegetable oil
    1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth

    Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper evenly over steaks. Set aside.

    Stir together remaining 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 1 1/2 cups flour in a shallow dish. Stir baking soda into 1 cup water in a bowl.

    Dip each steak in water mixture, and dredge in flour mixture.
