    Chicken fried steak is a great Southern recipe. Chicken fried steak is one of my favorite dishes served with mashed potatoes and gravy.  Someone asked me for the recipe recently and I was totally surprised that I did not have it on my blog.  I guess I thought everyone knew how to make this great dish.  There is not a lot to it and you can use cube steak, beef chuck steak, boneless sirloin, or round steak.  The picture above is of cubed steak chicken fried. Chicken fried steak and gravy is easy and delicious. 4 to 6 cubed steaks 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder Pinch cayenne (Optional) 2 eggs 1/4 to 1/2 cup cooking oil (I use Canola) 1 1/2 cups milk Chicken Fried Steak Instructions In a flat dish or pan (I use a pie pan) combine flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne.  Whisk together.  Break the 2 eggs into a separate bowl and beat till smooth.  Dip steaks in egg and then flour mixture. (I only do this once but some people dip in the egg, then flour, then egg again and flour again).  Make sure they are well coated with flour.  In a skillet on top of the stove heat oil to sizzling.(When you put a drop of water in oil it sizzles). Add steaks to hot oil being very careful since oil is so hot.  Cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side until golden brown.  Remove steaks to a plate and cover to keep warm.  Pour hot oil from skillet until you have only about 4 tablespoons remaining along with the browned crumbs and such in the pan. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of the leftover flour  to the drippings and stir to mix well.  Add 1 1/2 cups milk and cook to boiling.  Remove when gravy gets to desired thickness.  Pour gravy over cooked steaks and serve.  Makes 4 to 6 servings.  Enjoy! Note:  Steaks should be about 1/4 inch thick. You can tenderize by pounding with a meat tenderizer tool. Print Recipe 5 from 1 vote Chicken Fried Steak and Gravy This recipe is a classic!
