How to Make Chicken Fried Steak
- Combine milk, pepper sauce and salt in a bowl. Measure 1 cup of flour into a bowl. Combine remaining flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in another bowl.
- Dip steak into flour, into milk mixture and then into seasoned flour. Set aside until all meat is coated.
- Heat 1 or 2 inches oil in a heavy fry pan. Fry meat until both sides are golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with cream gravy.
- Cream Gravy: Pour off all but 6 TBS fat from fry pan; add 6 TBS flour and blend well. Gradually stir in 2 1/2 cups milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Cover steaks with gravy when served.
