I love a good chicken fried steak and just have no luck using cubed steak,tenderizing steak, etc. this is a good tender rib eye steak gently tenderized with a crispy coating. Good served with white cream gravy!

Whip up some potatoes, a little (or a lot) of country gravy and you've got a comforting Southern meal to warm up any night. With a flavorful flour coating and high-quality rib-eyes, this is an especially good chicken fried steak recipe totally worth the effort. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chicken fried Steak

Step-by-Step

  1. Using the smooth side of a meat mallet, gently pound the steaks to tenderize and flatten them' Place in a shallow baking dish, cover with cold water and add table salt to create a brining solution. cover and refrigerate 2 hours or over night.
  2. In a deep skillet, heat 4 inches of oil over medium-high heat to 350 degrees.
  3. In a shallow bowl, stir together flour, paprika, garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper. One by one, lift steaks out of the brining solution and drop into seasoned flour. Coat well;shake off excess. Repeat, dipping coated steaks back into the solution, then the flour.
  4. Slip steaks into the hot oil(do not fry more than 2 pieces at a time, as this will lower the temperature), Fry 4 to 5 mintues on each side or until golden brown. Remove: let rest 10 minutes before cutting.
