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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat together the egg and milk then set aside.
  2. Combine the flour and spices, mix well, and spread onto a flat tray or plate.
  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. Heat 1/2 inch deep cooking oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat for a few minutes.
  5. Check the temperature with a drop of the egg/milk mixture; if it pops and sizzles, it's ready.
  6. Carefully place each steak into the hot oil, allowing to fry for 3 to 5 minutes, then turn over and cook another 3 to 5 minutes, depending upon the size of the cutlets.
  7. Remove steaks from oil and allow to drain on paper towel.
  8. Leave about 3-4 tablespoons of the oil from frying the steak in the skillet and reduce heat to medium.
  9. Combine all ingredients for gravy on a bowl and mix until flour is desolved.
  10. Pour into skillet and cook until desired thickness is reached.
