How to Make Chicken Fried Steak (No, wait that's Deer Fried Steak)
- Beat together the egg & milk. Set aside.
- Lay meat, a few pieces at a time, on counter. Take a small cast iron skillet, or other skillet that is not rounded on bottom, & with the bottom edge of the pan, slightly flatten the meat. So, if the meat was 1/2" thick to start with, flatten to about 1/4".
- Place the deer steak in egg mixture.
- Place the flour in sorta deep bowl to prevent a mess.
- Remove the meat from mix, one piece at a time, & shake off excess liquid & place in flour mixture. With hands, cover both sides of meat with flour & press it onto it. Shake off excess & place on a piece of wax paper. Repeat with all pieces of meat. Do not stack.
- Heat 1/4" canola oil in cast iron skillet or whatever you fry in. Heat on med-high heat.
- As you place the meat in the fryer, re-dip in your flour first & shake off excess.
- Place in hot oil & fry until golden brown on one side, flip & repeat on other side.
- Drain on paper towels. Salt & pepper on top. Serve hot with mashed potatoes & white gravy.
- This has absolutely no deer taste. It tastes just like the normally chicken fried steak without the gristle & added fat.
