I love chicken fried steak, but my diet didn't actually cater to it. I found this recipe on weight watchers - it's a pretty good replacement. If doing WW, its 4 points per serving.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 lean cube steaks
  • 118.29 ml fat-free buttermilk
  • 236.59 ml flour (reserve 1 Tablespoon)
  • 4.92 ml salt

  • 29.58 ml oil
  • 473.18 ml skim milk


  1. Dip steaks in buttermilk. Combine flour, salt, and steak seasoning (remember to keep 1 tablespoon set aside). Dip steaks in flour mixture.
  2. Set steaks on wax paper, let set for 20 minutes.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoons oil in skillet, add steaks, cook until both sides are golden brown. Remove from pan and keep warm.

Just put this recipe through the recipe builder on WW.com. It came out to 8 points per serving. The only change I had to make to the recipe was saying it was low fat buttermilk, as the recipebuilder didn't bring up fat free. The 1/2 C low fat buttermilk only added 1 point to the recipe anyway. Still might try it as long as I can make some 0 or low point sides!

I made this the other night, and it was tasty. My only concern was that the breading became gummy after sitting for 20 minutes. Next time, I will only let it sit for about 5 minutes. The gumminess of the breading made it stick overly much to the pan. I was careful to turn only when the meat left the pan easily, but a lot of the breading was lost. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
