I got tired of the "same ole' country fried steak, and was looking through a TOH "country cooking" and found one that was contributed by Toni Holcomb. I changed a few things and here are the results. Feel free to adjust the seasonings to your own tastes. I served this with mashed potatoes and green beans. The nutrition amounts include the total amounts of flour and milk mixture--you might not use all of the flour mixture to bread the meat and you might not use all the gravy.

- In a shallow bowl combine one cup flour and all seasonings.
- In another bowl combine buttermilk and evaporated milk. Set aside 1 3/4 cups of milk mixture for gravy.
- Dip meat into flour mixture, then in milk mixture, and then back into flour.
- Repeat step 3 for the rest of meat.
- Heat oil in skillet until hot but not smoking.
- Cook meat until lightly browned on each side, about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Remove steaks and keep warm.
- Drain oil from pan, saving about 1/3. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Cook over medium heat until golden brown. Whip in remaining buttermilk mixture.
- Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.
- Serve over meat.
I used pork chops instead of cube steak and 2% instead of evaporated milk. It was so yummy! I've never had buttermilk gravy before either. It was also very yummy. I used the powder buttermilk mix .
Delish!!! I had to use regular milk due to being out of the others but it worked ok and the recipe turned out great. Dh loved the flavor.
I made this for my family last night and we LOVED it. We are big fans of chicken fried steaks but this is a step up from them. The spices in this really does put them over the top for us. I had never made a buttermilk gravy before so I was a little leary about trying it.......never again, it too was great, yummy. I served this with Creamy Parmesan Mashed Potatoes and Oven-Roasted Corn on the Cob and Spinach, Apple and Pecan Salad for a terrific meal. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us, its a keeper for sure.
