Coat the beef with the flour mixture. Pound the beef with a meat mallet.  Reserve 3 tablespoons flour mixture. Coat the beef again with the remaining flour mixture.  Dip the beef into the egg mixture and coat with the cracker crumbs. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the beef is cooked through. Remove the beef from the skillet. Drain the beef on brown paper bags. Cover and keep warm.
Add the onion to the skillet and cook until tender. Remove the onion from the skillet.
Pour off all but 3 tablespoons drippings from the skillet. Stir in the reserved flour mixture. Cook and stir for 1 minute, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in the remaining cream and the broth. Season with the Worcestershire and hot pepper sauce. Serve the gravy with the beef and onion.

    This is an old southern recipe that I have tried in Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, and New Mexico, and always the same. Good!
