Chicken Fried Steak
Round Steak or Cube Steak (tenderized)
2 cups of milk
2 cups of flour
Mix milk and egg together, add black pepper, seasoning salt, and any other seasonings you prefer. Dip the steak in your egg and milk mixture, make sure to coat both sides then place in seasoned flour mixture and place on plate until all pieces have been dredged. Heat oil to 350. Fry in small batches, do not crowd your skillet. Cook and brown both sides and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Keep warm.
Sweet milk or evaporated milk
1/2 cup of flour
salt & pepper
Pour off most of your grease, leaving 1/2 cup in your skillet along with all the brown bits from cooking the steaks. Stir your flour into the grease and cook until brown. If the roux looks too greasy add a little more flour, then pour in 2 cups of milk and whisk until combined, add salt and pepper to taste. If gravy gets too thick add more milk until you get the consistency you want.
Serve with a side of mashed potatoes or white rice, then pour gravy all over everything. It doesn't get any better than this! Try these recipes with your crowd and check the results. Until next time....
