 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5      tablespoons   all-purpose flour -- divided
      1/4  cup           cornmeal
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
    4                    beef cube steaks (about 1 pound)
    1                    egg white
    1      teaspoon      water
    2      tablespoons   cooking oil -- divided
                         GRAVY
    1      tablespoon    butter
    2      tablespoons   all-purpose flour
    1 1/2  cups          milk
    1      teaspoon      beef bouillon granules
      1/2  teaspoon      dried marjoram
      1/4  teaspoon      dried thyme
      1/8  teaspoon      pepper
 
 Combine 3 Tbsp flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper; set aside. Coat steaks with
 remaining flour. Beat egg white and water; dip steaks, then dredge in
 cornmeal mixture. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook two steaks in 1
 Tbsp oil for 5-7 minutes on each side or until crisp, lightly browned and
 cooked as desired. Remove steaks and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining
 oil and steaks. Meanwhile, for gravy, melt butter in a saucepan; stir in
 flour until well blended. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil over medium
 heat. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly; reduce heat to medium-low.
 Add bouillon, marjoram, thyme and pepper; simmer, uncovered, for 4-5
 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over steaks.
