Mock Chicken fried steak with Jenna’s Sawmill Gravy

We made this for dinner last night. I got this recipe from my mom when I was first married--22 years ago. Jenna made up the gravy to go with it. It tastes like what you would get at a restaurant. Don really likes it.
Mock Chicken fried steak with Jenna’s Sawmill Gravy

1 lb ground beef
2 tsp onion salt
2 tsp parsley flakes
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 T. chili powder
2 c. cracker crumbs—saltines or ritz

Mix ground beef, parsley, onion salt, egg, salt, chili powder and 1 c cracker crumbs. Divide mixture into balls—about ¼ c each. Sprinkle the rest of cracker crumbs on a plate and flatten meat balls out into ‘steaks’. Be sure to coat both sides with crumbs.

Place on waxed paper and chill 30 minutes or more. Heat 2 T. shortening in skillet until hot. Add steaks and brown on both sides until cooked through.
