Down Home Country Fried Steak

Recipe by CharityAnn
READY IN: 40mins




  • The gravy takes the longest, so start the gravy by combining the chicken broth, milk, salt and pepper in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
  • As it is heating (but before boiling) be very careful and remove about a 1/2 to 1 cup of the hot liquid.
  • Add flour to the liquid and whisk to combine.
  • Pour the hot liquid/flour mixture back into the sauce pan and whisk til smooth.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes until thick. Stir frequently.
  • While the gravy is going, heat oil in a deep fryer or large frying pan to 350°F Make sure to have enough oil to cover the steaks while frying.
  • Sift flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and seasoning salt together into a large shallow bowl.
  • Pour water into another shallow bowl.
  • Dredge each steak, one at a time, first in the water, then in the flour. Repeat this one more time so that each steak has been coated twice.
  • When all steaks have been coated and the oil is hot, drop the steaks, one at a time, into oil. If needed, work in batches. (I usually do.).
  • Fry for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Place on wire rack with paper towels underneath to drain. (This keeps 'em crispy).
  • Serve the steaks hot with gravy poured over.
