Prep Time:15 minutes Cook Time:30 minutes Total Time:45 minutes Servings: 4

Quick and easy tender steaks covered in breading and fried until golden brown crispy and all sorts of good, just like fried chicken!

ingredients
    For the chicken fried steaks:
  • 1 pound cubed steak*
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • For the gravy:
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
directions
    For the chicken fried steaks:
  1. Dredge the steaks in the mixture of the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and cajun seasoning flour and dip in the mixture of the buttermilk before dredging in the flour mixture a second time.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with 1/4 inch of oil in the bottom.
  3. Fry the steaks in the oil, one at a time, until lightly golden brown, about 2 minutes per side, before setting aside on a rack and continuing on with the remaining steaks.
  4. For the gravy:
  5. Drain off all but 3 tablespoons of the cooking oil, return to medium heat, sprinkle in the flour and cook until it turns a deep golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add the milk, bring to a simmer and cook until the gravy thickens, about 3-5 minutes, before seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Note: Cube steak is a usually top round steak or top sirloin steak cut of beef that is tenderized and flattened by pounding with a meat tenderizer. You can easily make your own by pounding some round steak thin with a meat tenderizer!
Note: The cajun seasoning can be replaced by another seasoning or simple salt and pepper and it can be mixed into either the buttermilk and egg mixture AND/or the flour. (Montreal steak seasoning is also good!)
Tip: Leave any ‘bits’ left in the pan after cooking the steaks when draining off the extra oil; these bits have flavour in them!
Option: Season the gravy with a pinch of cajun seasoning!
