Chicken Fried Steak Recipe

Chicken fried steak is thinly sliced cubed steak that is battered and fried in oil and is then served with a simple milk-based gravy.  The history of this recipe is a little bit murky, but to tie things together you are essentially taking a fried chicken batter and applying it to steak.

– 2 eggs – ½ cup whole milk – 2 dashes hot sauce – 1 cup all-purpose flour – ½ cup corn starch – 1 teaspoon paprika – 1 ½ teaspoons onion granules – 1 ½ teaspoons garlic granules – ½ teaspoon pepper – 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt – 8 cube steaks – sea salt and pepper to taste – 1 cup cooking oil

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt, and pepper until combined.


Whisk together some flour, corn starch, paprika, onion granules, garlic granules, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl.


Dredge a sliced pounded-out steak into the egg wash and then into the flour batter making sure it is completely coated and set aside on a cookie sheet tray lined with parchment paper.  Repeat until the steak is battered.


Cook the breaded steak on each side in a large frying pan over medium to medium-high heat, or 350°, for 1 ½ to 2 ½ minutes per side or until browned and cooked through.  Drain on paper towels or a rack.
