My sister-in-law is one great auntie. We really love her. She is a total sucker for our girls, and is a wonderful sister to her brother, (my hubby). We like to have her over often for dinner, and the girls don’t mind getting to fight over her attention as well. : )
One of her favorite dishes is chicken fried steak. And it goes well with my mashed potatoes everyone loves. It also reminds me of my dad and childhood. It was a dish he loved and my mom loved to make him. I hope you like it too! (And don’t forget the garlic seared onions and mushroom gravy!)
(And sorry for the blurry picture-just trust me-it’s good!)
CHICKEN FRIED STEAK
5 or 6 cube steaks (these are uber-tenderized steaks)
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp black pepper
oil for frying
Mix egg and milk in one bowl. Mix flour and seasonings in another bowl.
Now heat some oil in a pan over medium high heat. (about 1/4 inch deep is plenty)
Dip steaks in flour mixture, then egg mixture, then flour mix again.
(For extra crunch, do another dip in each)
Cook in batches, don’t overcrowd the pan!
Flip when golden brown, it should take just a few minutes for each side.
I like to put cooked steaks on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet in the oven at a low temp while the next batch cooks or I finish the gravy and whatnot.
As always, use the seasoning you like! Have some fun with them!
