Chicken Fried Steak with Gravy

This recipe is courtesy of The Neelys from Food Network. I gave this a 10 out of 10.

1/2 c. oil
6 (4 oz. each) cube steaks
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. paprika
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. milk
Chopped parsley leaves, for garnish

Heat a medium-high skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil.

Pound out the cube steaks with a meat mallet until they are 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick. Salt and pepper both sides. Mix the flour, cayenne and paprika together in a bowl. Beat the eggs in another bowl. Dredge the steaks in the flour,

then in the egg mixture,

then in the flour again.

Place the steak carefully into the skillet. Cook until golden brown, about 4 to 6 minues on each side. When finished, place on a sheet tray lined with paper towels, hold in a warm oven and repeat the procedure with the other pieces of steak.

When all steaks have been cooked off, pour off all but 2 T. of the oil and lower heat. Add 3 T. of the leftover flour mixture to the oil and whisk to create a paste. Cook until golden, about 1 minute. Gradually add the milk to the flour and oil mixture while whisking together.

Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste. Let cook until thickened; about 10 minutes.

Pour gravy over the steak to finish and garnish with parsley if desired.

Ta dah!! Yum, Yum good!!


  1. Yummy! This sounds and looks very tasty!
    Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Why is it called 'chicken' fried steak??

  3. I grew up on this stuff. Yummy, yum and more yum. I miss my mommy!!! LOL

  4. Zen, I guess because it is floured and then fried like you would chicken, and it has a crispy coating like chicken does when you fry it.
