This version of chicken fried steak is extremely user friendly. Albeit a bit messy, the outcome is fantastic. I love to mix spices for various recipes, but this one is one I no longer try to alter. A true family favorite!

How to Make Best Chicken Fried Steak Ever


  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl with clean-dry hands
  2. In a seperate bowl, beat eggs, then add the milk, and beat together until smooth
  3. Individually coat both sides of a steak (helps to give the egg something to stick to)
  4. Then dip it in the egg mixture (do not oversaturate... just briefly dunk the steak in the mixture)
  5. Take the egg soaked steak and toss in flour mixture
  6. Repeat the process by dipping steak back into te egg mixture, then once again in the flour mixture
  7. Set steak on plate, and proceed with remaining steaks, following steps 3-6
  8. Heat oil on MEDIUM-HIGH (oil is ready when you can flick flour into it and it sizzles rapidly)
  9. Add steaks two or three at a time (dependent on steak and pan size)turn once after 4 minutes. Allow to cook another 4 minutes or until juices run clear.
  10. When the steak has completed cooking, remove from pan with tongs and place on paper towel lined platter or plate. (while remaining steaks fry, a warmer or an oven at about 170 degrees can be used to keep the steaks warm, without affecting crispiness).
  11. Serve with gravy, corn, green beans and crescent rolls...and you've got a fantastic southern style meal!
