Chicken Fried Steak

Posted by Donna:

I thought there might be some newlyweds out there that may wonder about making chicken fried steak for their husbands. Sometimes the simplest of things are the things we wonder about the most.

Chicken Fried Steak

This is what I do for Larry and me.

Two cubed steaks (I buy mine from United. They're usually already tenderized. )

I cut mine into about 1-1/2 inch strips. I then soak them in buttermilk for about 5 minutes. Shake off the excess buttermilk and put them in a flour/salt/pepper mixture. Dip them in the buttermilk again, and repeat the flour mixture.

Fry until they're crispy and done. Since I don't like "grease", I always run my steak ( not Larry's) under hot water to get off the grease; then dab with a paper towel. I also always run my ground beef under hot water (in a colander) to get the grease off after I've browned it.

I always fix chicken fried steak for my older brother when he comes to visit. It's just a down home meal.

That is one thing I never make because it's fried, but I would like to know HOW to do it. I like to eat it about once a year at a restaurant.

I don't do a lot of fried, either; but, this is Larry's favorite meal. Occasionally, maybe every couple of months, I break down and do the steak, mashed potatoes, and gravy---not too healthy---but it makes him so happy. I actually fixed fried chicken like this yesterday.
