  1. Whisk vegan mayo with oat milk until it replicates egg and cream consistency.
  2. Heat a cast-iron pan and add oil, swirl to coat the surface.
  3. Mix flour in a bowl with smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano powder, nutritional yeast, black pepper and salt.
  4. Coat steaks with seasoned flour and set aside on a baking paper lined baking sheet.
  5. Add panko to flour and mix.
  6. Take steak and dip into the milk and mayo mixture, drip off excess liquid and dip into flour and panko mix and set aside on plate. Repeat with each steak.
  7. Place steaks in the hot pan and fry for a minute or two on each side until crispy and golden. Place to drip dry on folded paper towels on a baking sheet.
  8. Discard some of the oil from the pan (leave a good amount for frying) and add the shredded mushrooms to the pan. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, ground peppercorns and smoked paprika. Stir thoroughly with whisk to coat and add sliced garlic. Add a little flour and whisk again. Add oat milk to create a gravy/roux sauce, keep whisking. Add vegan butter and whisk again as it bubbles. Add pinch of salt and lower heat. Taste and season accordingly.
  9. Heat up another pan on a high heat and add a little oil and wilt baby spinach, turning occasionally in pan. When wilted, remove from pan and turn off heat.
  10. Serve breaded steak with mashed potato, wilted spinach and gravy. Garnish with red jalapeno and fresh thyme.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
