Country Fried Steak


“Another day in paradise”

Country Fried Steak? Chicken Fried Steak? Whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious! There are many different ways to make it, (I’ve used bread crumbs, buttermilk, etc) but this one is probably the easiest recipe I’ve done for the gravy-covered dinner!! Hope you enjoy!! 🙂

Country Fried Steak:

2 large eggs
1 cup plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon paprika
4 minute steaks (each about 2 ounces and 1/4 inch thick)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups whole milk


Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a wide, shallow bowl, beat eggs; in another, combine 1 cup flour with paprika. (I find that pie plates work great for dredging) Season eggs, flour mixture, and steaks with salt and pepper. Dredge each steak in flour, then dip in egg; allow excess to drip off, then dredge in flour again.
In a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet, heat 1/4 cup oil over medium-high. Cook steaks in skillet until crust is golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet, and place in oven to keep warm.
Pour off all but 1 tablespoon oil from skillet. Add remaining teaspoon flour; cook, whisking until golden, about 30 seconds. Gradually add milk while whisking; raise heat to high, and boil until thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Season gravy with salt and pepper. Cover, and set aside.
