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!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A great old-fashioned recipe for chicken fried steak. If you're new to cooking, this is a great recipe to try since the directions are straightforward and use basic ingredients. This does make a mess, so it's a great weekend recipe when you have a little extra clean-up time. The seasoned flour is what makes this recipe really good. It's full of spices and flavor. The crust around the cube steak fries nice and crisp. Serve with or without a cream gravy for a fabulous Southern-style meal.

NOTE: We had a lot of flour leftover. We suggest mixing the seasoned flour and reserving half for later use. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Best Chicken Fried Steak Ever

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl with clean-dry hands.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Then add the milk and beat together until smooth.
  3. Individually coat both sides of a steak with the flour mixture (helps to give the egg something to stick to). Then dip it in the egg mixture (do not oversaturate... just briefly dunk the steak in the mixture).
  4. Take the egg-soaked steak and toss it in the flour mixture. Repeat the process by dipping steak back into the egg mixture, then once again in the flour mixture. Set the steak on a plate and proceed with the remaining steaks, following the same process.
  5. Heat oil on MEDIUM-HIGH (oil is ready when you can flick flour into it and it sizzles rapidly). 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Serve with gravy, corn, green beans, and crescent rolls... and you've got a fantastic Southern-style meal!
