Mmm mmm! Country Fried Steak! Momma, I'll be home for dinner! This is a great comfort food that makes me think of home. One of my favorite things about this dish is that it is simple to make.
Country(or Chicken) Fried Steak
2 cubed steaks
1 tbls milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp white pepper
Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Dredge steaks in flour. Whisk together milk and egg in a bowl. Put steaks in egg/milk mixture and cover completely. Put steaks back in flour until completely coated. Shake off excess flour. Set steak aside and let rest. This is the trick to getting the breading to stay on the steak when it is cooking.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium/medium high heat. Cook steaks in skillet about 5 minutes per side until they are nice and browned. Remove steaks from pan and place on a wire rack to drain and rest. Enjoy!
These steaks are a classic American dinner(or Austrian - Wiener Schnitzel) and are perfectly paired with mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese. They are also great with gravy made from the drippings in the pan. Perhaps I will post my recipe for the gravy one day as well so you'd better come back and visit!
