    Big John's Note:

    I'm told Chicken Fried Steak is the Official State Dish of Texas. I hope I don't offend any Texans with this version.

    SouthWestern Gravy


    1. 1
      Beat together the egg and milk then set aside.
    2. 2
      Combine the flour and spices, mix well, and spread onto a flat tray or plate.
    3. 3
      Dip each steak into the milk/egg mixture and dredge each in the flour mixture, then dip back into the milk/egg mixture.
    4. 4
      Heat 1/2 inch deep cooking oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat for a few minutes.
    5. 5
      Check the temperature with a drop of the egg/milk mixture; if it pops and sizzles, it's ready.
    6. 6

    7. 7
      Remove steaks from oil and allow to drain on paper towel.
    8. 8
      Leave about 3-4 tablespoons of the oil from frying the steak in the skillet and reduce heat to medium.

      Combine all ingredients for gravy on a bowl and mix until flour is desolved.
    10. 10

      I had to add a comment. I just made this again and realized I must have mis-read the recipe the first time. I used 3 teaspoons of pepper not tablespoons and it was perfect. When i made it again I used tablespoons and it was way toooo spicy. I don't know if it's a typo or not but if you don't love pepper, I mean really love pepper use teaspoons. Otherwise, this recipe's delicious
