This is the real thing. Passed down from generation, I might actually be the first one to write this down. We just pass it down orally.
- 4 -6 cube steaks
- 3 cups flour, it's better to have too much than too little (enough to fill one bowl about 1/2 way)
- 1 egg
- 2 cups buttermilk, you can use regular or 2 cups low-fat milk, too I use all kinds
- garlic salt
- seasoning salt
- lemon pepper
- Fill frying pan about 1/2 way with oil, turn heat on med-med/high.
- In one bowl beat egg, milk, and some seasonings together with a fork.
- Put flour in another bowl and season to taste.
- Put 2 pieces of meat in milk mixture, let soak while oil gets hot(you know it's hot when a sprinkle of flour sizzles in the pan) then roll in flour batter and put in oil.
- Fry 10 minute one side then flip (or when golden brown) and fry 10 min other side. fry couple minute more each side just for good measure.
- While 2 pieces are frying put 2 more pieces in milk and let soak till other pieces are done. Don't put it in flour till ready to fry, will end up soggy!
- Keep repeating till all the meat's gone! Enjoy!
I was prepared to be disappointed having tried so many chicken fried steak recipes before but Jessica, you have a winner on your hands! I used garlic powder and seasoned salt, forgot the lemon pepper, but so what these were a hit without it. So tender after only five minutes in the pan too. DD wouldn't leave until I'd printed out the recipe for her. What a great way to remember your ancestors. TFS Posted for ZWT3
Super easy and delicious. Sometimes instead of rolling them in flour I roll them in crushed crackers.
this is great stuff . i make a cream gravy after frying the steaks to top these with
