The Allure of Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken fried steak embodies the hearty, comforting flavors of Southern cuisine, tracing its roots back to German and Austrian immigrants who brought Wiener Schnitzel to America. Over time, this dish evolved into a beloved Southern staple, cherished for its crispy exterior and tender meat, all smothered in creamy gravy. Whether you’re nostalgic for home-cooked meals or eager to explore Midwestern flavors, chicken fried steak promises a satisfying dining experience.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 4 cube steaks (about 1/3 pound each): Cube steak is traditionally used for its tenderness and ability to cook quickly.
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour: Forms the base for the crispy coating.
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder: Adds savory depth to the seasoning.
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder: Enhances the overall flavor profile.
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika: Infuses a subtle smokiness into the breading.
  • Salt and pepper to taste: Essential for seasoning both the meat and the flour mixture.
  • 2 large eggs: Bind the flour mixture to the steak for a crispy crust.
  • 1/4 cup milk: Combines with the eggs for a smooth batter.
  • Vegetable oil for frying: Provides the medium for achieving a crispy, golden crust.

For the gravy:

  • 2 tablespoons of reserved frying oil: Adds flavor and richness to the gravy.
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour: Thickens the gravy to a creamy consistency.
  • 2 cups milk: Forms the base of the gravy, providing creaminess.
  • Salt and pepper to taste: Season the gravy to complement the savory steak.
