Chicken Fried Steak with Gravy image

Provided by Ree Drummond : Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 1h

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 pounds cube steak (tenderized round steak that's been extra tenderized)
Kosher salt
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 to 4 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Mashed potatoes, for serving


  • For the steak: Begin with setting up an assembly line of dishes. Mix the milk with the eggs in one; the flour mixed with the seasoned salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, paprika and cayenne in another; and the meat in a third. Then have one clean plate at the end to receive the breaded meat.
  • Work with one piece of meat at a time. Sprinkle both sides with kosher salt and black pepper, then place it in the flour mixture. Turn to coat. Place the meat into the milk/egg mixture, turning to coat. Finally, place it back in the flour and turn to coat (dry mixture/wet mixture/dry mixture). Place the breaded meat on the clean plate, then repeat with the remaining meat.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter. Drop in a few sprinkles of flour to make sure it's sufficiently hot. When the butter sizzles immediately, you know it's ready. (It should not brown right away, if it does, the fire is too hot.) Cook the meat, 3 pieces at a time, until the edges start to look golden brown, about 2 minutes each side. Remove the meat to a paper towel-lined plate and keep them warm by covering lightly with another plate or a sheet of foil. Repeat until all the meat is cooked.
  • After all the meat is fried, pour off the grease into a heatproof bowl. Without cleaning the skillet, return it to the stove over medium-low heat. Add 1/4 cup of the grease back to the skillet and allow it to heat up.
  • For the gravy: When the grease is hot, sprinkle the flour evenly over the grease. Using a whisk, mix the flour with the grease, creating a golden-brown paste. Add more flour if it looks overly greasy; add a little more grease if it becomes too pasty/clumpy. Keep cooking until the roux reaches a deep golden brown color.
  • Pour in the milk, whisking constantly. Add the seasoned salt and black pepper to taste and cook, whisking, until the gravy is smooth and thick, 5 to 10 minutes. Be prepared to add more milk if it becomes overly thick. Be sure to taste to make sure gravy is sufficiently seasoned.
  • Serve the meat next to a big side of mashed potatoes. Pour gravy over the whole shebang!


The Best Chicken Fried Steak image

I received this recipe from a co-worker about 5 years ago. This is by far the best chicken fried steak I've ever had. I've made this numerous times for my picky eater son and my southern-raised better half, as well as other family and friends. I get nothing but rave reviews each time.

Categories     Meat and Poultry Recipes     Beef     Steaks

Time 40m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 14

4 (1/2 pound) beef cube steaks
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon black pepper
¾ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups buttermilk
1 egg
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups vegetable shortening for deep frying
¼ cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk
kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste


  • Pound the steaks to about 1/4-inch thickness. Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. Stir together the baking powder, baking soda, pepper, and salt in a separate shallow bowl; stir in the buttermilk, egg, Tabasco Sauce, and garlic. Dredge each steak first in the flour, then in the batter, and again in the flour. Pat the flour onto the surface of each steak so they are completely coated with dry flour.
  • Heat the shortening in a deep cast-iron skillet to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Fry the steaks until evenly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place fried steaks on a plate with paper towels to drain. Drain the fat from the skillet, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid and as much of the solid remnants as possible.
  • Return the skillet to medium-low heat with the reserved oil. Whisk the remaining flour into the oil. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release solids into the gravy. Stir in the milk, raise the heat to medium, and bring the gravy to a simmer, cook until thick, 6 to 7 minutes. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Spoon the gravy over the steaks to serve.

For a classic, down-home supper, try Alton Brown's Chicken-Fried Steak recipe smothered in gravy, from Good Eats on Food Network.

Provided by Alton Brown

Categories     main-dish

Time 1h25m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 pounds beef bottom round, trimmed of excess fat
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 whole eggs, beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Cut the meat with the grain into 1/2-inch thick slices. Season each piece on both sides with the salt and pepper. Place the flour into a pie pan. Place the eggs into a separate pie pan. Dredge the meat on both sides in the flour. Tenderize the meat, using a needling device, until each slice is 1/4-inch thick. Once tenderized, dredge the meat again in the flour, followed by the egg and finally in the flour again. Repeat with all the pieces of meat. Place the meat onto a plate and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before cooking.
  • Place enough of the vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch slope-sided skillet and set over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook each piece on both sides until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes per side. Remove the steaks to a wire rack set in a half sheet pan and place into the oven. Repeat until all of the meat is browned.
  • Add the remaining vegetable oil, or at least 1 tablespoon, to the pan. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the flour left over from the dredging. Add the chicken broth and deglaze the pan. Whisk until the gravy comes to a boil and begins to thicken. Add the milk and thyme and whisk until the gravy coats the back of a spoon, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste, with more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve the gravy over the steaks.


Chicken-Fried Steak image

Through good times and bad, the cube steak has remained a wallflower among meat cuts. Old-fashioned and a little mysterious, it's a steak without pretension, or maybe a hamburger with humble aspirations. The term "cube" can be a little murky. It doesn't refer to the shape of the meat, which is usually beef but is sometimes made from pork, elk or other animals. Rather, it refers to both the shape of the dimples that checkerboard the surface of cube steak and the process that puts the dimples there. Those dimples provide more surface area for flour to cling to, which makes for crisper cutlets in recipes like this simply-prepared (no batter, just a generous dusting of flour) chicken-fried steak.

Categories     dinner, quick, main course

Time 25m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 6

Vegetable oil for frying
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons pepper
2 cups milk
2 pounds cube steak, cut into 6 pieces


  • Heat oven to 200 degrees. Pour a half-inch of oil into a cast-iron or other large, heavy skillet and place over medium-high heat.
  • Put flour, salt and pepper in a large zip-top bag or in a large baking dish and mix well. Pour milk into a large bowl. Dip each piece of steak in milk, shake off excess and then shake in bag of flour or press into dish of flour, making sure both sides are well coated. Shake off excess.
  • Lay steaks into hot oil until skillet is full, but not crowded. Cook for about 3 minutes a side, or until a good crust is formed. You may need to do this in batches, moving steaks to a platter in the warm oven as they cook. When done, pour off all but about 4 tablespoons of fat from pan, leaving in as many browned bits as possible, and turn off heat.
  • Pour milk into a saucepan and add enough water to make 3 cups. Heat over medium heat until just before boiling point.
  • Turn heat under frying pan to medium. When oil is hot, sprinkle in 3 tablespoons of flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, quickly stirring until flour starts to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually add liquid, stirring constantly to remove lumps and cook until thickened. Adjust seasoning.

Poor Man's Chicken Fried Steak image

A chicken-fried steak made with hamburger. Very nice flavor! Salt and pepper are your friends in this recipe.

Provided by Bryan Nelson

Categories     100+ Everyday Cooking Recipes

Time 40m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 8

½ pound ground beef
1 cup all-purpose flour
salt and ground black pepper to taste
4 eggs
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, or more if needed
1 cup milk


  • Divide the meat into 4 pieces, and flatten into thin beef patties. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat until almost smoking, and cook the beef patties until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side; set the cooked burgers aside. Drain excess grease but leave any browned drippings in the skillet.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix together 1 cup of flour with salt and black pepper. In a separate shallow bowl, beat the eggs until smooth, mixing in a half teaspoon of water if needed.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in the skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides of cooked burgers into the eggs, then dredge in the seasoned flour; repeat 3 times to build up a thick coating on the burgers. Place the burgers into the hot oil, and pan-fry until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Set burgers aside.
  • Spoon away any excess vegetable oil. Melt butter in the skillet over medium heat, and stir to loosen any brown flavor bits left in the bottom of the skillet. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of flour until smooth. If you prefer a very thick gravy, use more flour. Gradually whisk in milk, cooking until the gravy is thick. Season to taste with salt and black pepper, and serve the gravy over the chicken-fried beef patties.

2 fillet tail steaks (about 200g each), or 2 sirloin steaks, fat trimmed
2 eggs, beaten

4 tbsp plain flour

1⁄2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp flour
1 chicken stock cube
275ml milk
1 tbsp thyme leaves

  • Put the steaks on a board and bash with a rolling pin until about half the original thickness. Mix the eggs with the cayenne in a bowl. Combine the ingredients for the spice mix with a large pinch of salt in a separate shallow dish.

Chicken Fried Steak I image

Breaded and deep fried beef cutlets are known as chicken fried steak because of the similarity in cooking method to fried chicken. This is a family recipe that we have used for years. Vegetable oil may be used in place of shortening for frying.

Provided by Barbara

Categories     Main Dish Recipes

Time 45m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 pound boneless beef top loin
2 cups shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
salt and pepper to taste
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 quart milk
salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut top loin crosswise into 4 (4 ounce) cutlets. Using a glancing motion, pound each cutlet thinly with a moistened mallet or the side of a cleaver.
  • In a large, heavy skillet, heat 1/2 inch shortening to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  • While the shortening is heating, prepare cutlets. In a shallow bowl, beat together egg, buttermilk, salt and pepper. In another shallow dish, mix together garlic powder and 1cup flour. Dip cutlets in flour, turning to evenly coat both sides. Dip in egg mixture, coating both sides, then in flour mixture once again.
  • Place cutlets in heated shortening. Cook until golden brown, turning once. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining cutlets. Drain grease, reserving 1/2 cup.
  • Using the reserved drippings in the pan, prepare gravy over medium heat. Blend in 1/4 cup flour to form a paste. Gradually add milk to desired consistency, stirring constantly. For a thicker gravy add less milk; for a thinner gravy stir in more. Heat through, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over chicken fried steak.

Route 66 Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich image

When I moved to Oklahoma from Florida, I learned "Okies" love their chicken fry. In fact, if you ask someone who has ever traveled old Route 66 from Miami (Okies pronounce this My-am-uh) to the town of Texola what's the worst food you can eat they'll likely say "chicken fried steak". The best thing you can eat on Route 66? That would also be chicken fried steak. As contradictory as it may seem it's true! I tried to lighten this dish up by air frying, but feel free to grab a cast iron skillet and cook these steaks up too!

As Easy As It Gets Chicken-Fried Steak image

Chicken-fried steak is a treat no Southerner can resist! And I can't resist a 5-ingredient version of the recipe. This is really not a hard food to prepare and I give ideas for rounding out a traditional meal using convenience foods. Prepare as much of your menu as possible beforehand because once the meat starts cooking, it goes fast! Treat yourself to some real down-home southern cooking today!

Provided by Lorraine of AZ

Categories     Meat

Time 21m

Yield 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

4 cube steaks (one for each of your diners)
1/3 cup flour
salt and pepper
1/4 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups dry bread, crumbs (panko may be used)
1/3 cup salad oil


  • Mix the flour, salt and pepper together in a bowl; I use soup bowls. You may measure these, as I do, Rachael Ray style ~ in other words I eyeball the amounts. In a second bowl. whisk together the milk and egg until lemon colored. I a third bowl, add the dry bread crumbs. Line the bowls up assemble-line style.
  • Dredge the meat in the seasoned flour, knocking off excess. Dip floured meat in the egg and milk mixture, coating well. Then dredge in the bread crumbs, again, coating well.
  • Heat a cast-iron skillet (traditional but your own skillet will work) over medium-high heat. Add oil. When oil is hot enough to spit back at you if you sprinkle water on it, add meat and brown 2-1/2 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium and 6 minutes per side for well-done. Turn only once. As you see, this goes fast and the meat requires your full attention while cooking. Remove meat to a serving dish and keep warm.
  • Notes: A traditional meal of chicken-fried steak includes:.
  • Mashed potatoes: use a prepared mix or refrigerated potatoes.
  • Country gravy: use an envelope of country-style gravy and prepare according to package directions.
  • Green beans: canned beans work well, perhaps flavored with some bacon.
  • Biscuits: use refrigerated baking powder style biscuits. These are a vital part of the Southerner's meal.
  • Salad: A wedge of lettuce or tossed green salad goes well.
  • Dessert: That's up to you. Mississippi Mud Cake was a fave in our home (recipe is posted).
  • Remember to prepare as much as possible of the menu beforehand so that once the meat is cooked, you're ready to heat.
  • To make CHICKEN-FRIED CHICKEN, I follow this same recipe, but I use pounded boneless skinless chicken breasts (your butcher will do this for you). I do like Panko on the chicken.
