    Nana Lee's Note:

    It is hard to get much more Texan than Chicken Fried Steak. Quality of the beef really counts in this dish. This recipe calls for cube steaks, but good round steak that you have asked the butcher to run through the tenderizer or that you have tenderized yourself with a mallet (no big deal and can be a real stress reliever) can be even better. NOTE TO CREAM GRAVY NOVICES: Gravy-making is an inexact science. Cream gravy is supposed to be thick, but if you think it's too thick, add more liquid until you're satisfied with it.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 3 tablespoons flour (use the left-over flour from the chicken fried steak recipe)
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 3/4 cup water
    • salt
    • pepper


    1. 1
    2. 2
      Beat together the egg and milk and set aside.
    3. 3
      Mix together the salt, black pepper, paprika and white pepper and sprinkle on both sides of beef cutlets.
    4. 4
      Dredge the cutlets in the flour, shaking off the excess.
    5. 5
      Then dip each cutlet in the egg/milk mixture, then back in the flour. (You're going to get your hands messy here, so take your rings off.)
    6. 6
      Set cutlets aside on a piece of waxed paper.
    7. 7
      Heat the cooking oil in a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat for a few minutes.
    8. 8
      Oil should be about a half-inch deep in the pan.
    9. 9
      Check the temperature with a drop of water; if it pops and spits back at you, it's ready.
    10. 10
      With a long-handled fork, carefully place each cutlet into the hot oil.
    11. 11
      Protect yourself (and your kitchen) from the popping grease that results.
    12. 12
      Fry cutlets on both sides, turning once, until golden brown.
    13. 13
      Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 4 or 5 minutes until cutlets are done through.
    14. 14
      Drain cutlets on paper towels.
    15. 15
    16. 16
      After the cutlets are removed from the pan, pour off all but about 2 tablespoons of oil, keeping as many as possible of the browned bits in the pan.
    17. 17
      Heat the oil over medium heat until hot.
    18. 18
      Sprinkle flour in the hot oil.
    19. 19
      Stir with a wooden spoon or whisk, quickly, to brown the flour.
    20. 20
      Gradually stir in milk and water, mixed together, stirring constantly with the wooden spoon or whisk and mashing out any lumps.
    21. 21
      Lower heat, and gravy will begin to thicken.
    22. 22
      Continue cooking and stirring a few minutes until gravy reaches desired thickness.
    23. 23
      Check seasonings and add more salt and pepper according to your taste.

      I made this for mine and SO's dinner on 8/20/08. Since pork cube steaks were all that was on hand I had to use that. I mixed the seasonings into the flour, and then continued on with the recipe as written.As I was reading the part of the recipe about making the gravy, I realized "That even a beginner gravy maker could do this". That's how easy and straight to the point,that these directions are to follow.After finishing the recipe and taking my first bite, I thought this was really good. " Southern Comfort Food " at it's finest. Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)'
