  • 236.59 ml flour
  • 236.59 ml Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 0.25 ml paprika

  3. Place 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil in frying pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook steaks for 5 minutes on one side (cooking time depends on thickness of steak).
  5. The juices from the steak might soak up the flour, so before you flip the steaks add some more of the flour mixture, patting it down with a spatula.

  7. When finished cooking, remove steaks and keep warm.

  9. Once steaks are finished cooking add a small amount of oil (most of oil, if not all, will have been used in cooking the steaks) and cook the mushrooms.
  10. Add 1/4 water, salt&pepper, and continue cooking.
  11. Make sure to get all of the scraps from the sides of the pan that the steaks left into the liquid you are cooking the mushrooms in.
  12. When most of liquid is cooked off, sprinkle remaining flour over mushrooms and cook for 1 minute.
  13. Add milk and cook until thickened to your liking.

This was absolutely delicious! Chicken Fried Steak is one of my husband's favorite meals, and he devoured this! I cut the flour and breadcrumbs in 1/2 and had plenty to cover 4 steaks. The fresh mushrooms gave the dish a great flavor boost. The gravy was super! Thanks for a great recipe! Will make this again!

This was a real hit in our house, I used rump steak and only used 3/4 cup of flour and breadcrumbs. The steak was lovely and tender, loved the crisp outside, and the mushroom gravy was delicious. Thanks for posting. =)
