How to Make Chicken Fried Steak


  • 1Cut the round steak into slightly small portions and beat with a mallet or back of a knife until thin and all ratty looking.
  • 2Beat the eggs with a little water.
  • 3Mix the flour, salt, pepper and about 1 1/2 teaspoons of tenderizer together.
  • 4Dredge the meat through the eggs and then in the flour mixture.
  • 5Fry on medium-high heat in oil and butter.
  • 6Be careful that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan too bad.
  • 7As you cook, sprinkle little bits of the flour mix in the pan so that you get a lot of good drippings. This will be used for the gravy.
  • 8When the meat is cooked through, drain on paper towels while you make the gravy.
  • 9Drain most of the oil out of the pan, and add about 1/2 stick of butter.
  • 10Stir well over medium low heat to scrape all the drippings off the bottom of the pan.
  • 11Sprinkle some more of the flour mix into the pan until you almost have a roux.
  • 12Add a little milk at a time, stirring well with a flat spatula to get it all mixed up.
  • 13When desired consistency, remove from heat and serve with the steak.
  • 14Try serving with black-eyed peas and lots of mashed potatoes or rice.
