Texas Chicken Fried Steak and Gravy

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CookinCowgirl

There's probably not a truck stop or roadhouse in the Lone Star State that doesn't serve chicken fried steak. It's great with mashed potatoes and gravy, buttered green beans, and yeast rolls - true Texas comfort food.

I don't cook this type of food often, but I am a Texas girl and my family loves comfort food...and this recipe went over well at our dinner table tonight. I made it as directed and it turned out great! I will be making this again. Thank you for posting. Rachel Castle

  1. Put the flour in a shallow bowl.
  2. In another, stir together the salt, pepper, soda, baking powder, egg, buttermilk, Tabasco, and garlic.
  3. Dredge each steak in flour, then buttermilk mixture, and coat again in the flour.
  4. Using a cast iron skillet or dutch oven, pour in 4 inches of oil and heat to medium high.
  5. When the oil is ready, fry the steaks about 4 minutes on each side, or until browned.
  6. Remove to a platter lined with paper towels.
  7. Pour off all but 6 tbs of the oil and add 6 tbs flour (I use the dredging flour) and make a roux.
  8. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly.
