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
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.
