Remove and discard plastic wrap.
Combine egg and the 1 tablespoon milk in a shallow bowl.
Combine bread crumbs, salt, and pepper in another shallow bowl. Dip steak pieces into egg mixture, turning to coat all sides evenly. Then dip into bread crumb mixture, turning to coat all sides evenly. Gently shake off any excess bread crumbs.

Remove steaks from skillet and place on a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining steak pieces, adding more oil if necessary. Return all of the steaks to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 45 to 60 minutes or until steaks are tender.
Transfer steaks to a serving platter and cover to keep warm. Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet; discard remaining drippings, or add additional oil if needed.
Heat reserved drippings in skillet.
Whisk in flour. Gradually stir in the 1 cup milk, half-and-half, and thyme. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute more. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
