Tenderized round steak (cube steak) shallow fried in a crispy batter and served with a milk gravy. A rib-sticking comfort food.
Chicken fried steak is typically made with an inexpensive cube steak which is basically round steak that has been tenderized by piercing or pounding. To bread, I apply the dry-wet-dry method using flour, egg wash, and bread crumb coating, respectively. I shallow fry mine in olive oil and a little butter. For the gravy, I whisk reserved fat dripping, flour, and milk until thick and creamy. I serve it with mashed potatoes and a veggie side. As you can see, chicken fried steak is a comforting and rib-sticking meal that not only my husband, but also the whole family enjoys.
