Chicken Fried Steak Recipe

To get a nice coating on the cubed steak, I first coat it in flour, then dip it in an egg and milk mixture, and then coat it a mixture of flour and crushed saltine crackers with a little seasoned salt and cayenne pepper mixed in.

I like to cook Chicken Fried Steak in my cast iron pan. It retains heat so well and makes cooking this classic southern meal a breeze. I put almost an inch of oil in the pan, heat it over medium heat, and add the cubed steak in 2 batches. It only takes 3 to 4 minutes per side to cook.

When it comes to comfort food, Chicken Fried Steak is the real deal. Tenderized cubed steak is breaded and pan-fried and then topped with a creamy milk gravy made from the pan drippings.
