Country Fried Steak (aka Chicken Fried Steak)
Simple recipe that is like a copycat to restaurants like Shoney's and Cracker Barrel. Make with cube steak and serve with Country gravy for the ultimate comfort food experience.
cube steak / minute steak
(tenderized round steak)
Oil for frying.
Set 2 shallow bowls on the counter. In one bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and hot sauce. In the other bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and cayenne.
Add oil to a cast iron skillet or other frypan so that it is about 1/4-1/2 inch deep. Heat on medium high heat.
Dredge the cube steak in the flour and shake off any excess flour. Dip in the egg wash and then dredge back into the flour mixture.
Place cube steak in the hot oil. Let the steak fry for 3-5 minutes and gently flip, making sure the coating on the steak stays intact.
Fry on the other side for 3-5 minutes. Both sides should be crispy and lightly brown in color.
Remove the steak from the oil and drain on a paper towel. Cook the remaining steaks.
Serve with country gravy.
