Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken Fried Steak

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 cube steak cutlets
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
In a small bowl, beat the egg and milk together. Set aside.

In a little cup, shake all the spices together. Sprinkle on both sides of the cutlets.

Lay flour out on a large plate or cutting board. Drag the cutlets through the flour so that both sides are completely covered. Dip each cutlet into the egg/milk mixture and then drag once more through the flour. Set cutlets aside.

Add cooking oil to a large, heavy skillet - oil should be about 1/2 inch deep. Heat skillet to medium-high heat. When a drop of water sprinkled into skillet "pops", you're ready to cook.

With tongs or a long fork, Carefully place each cutlet into the hot oil. Fry cutlets on both sides, turning once, until golden brown. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 4 or 5 minutes until cutlets are done through. Drain cutlets on paper towels.

Here's a tip for some gravy:
Save 2 Tablespoons of the oil when you're finished. Add about 3 Tablespoons of flour and a 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Heat over medium heat and gradually add 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of water. Add dashes of pepper to taste. Makes a good thick gravy.


I love chicken fried steak and eggs. I included a simple recipe for gravy from my mom. I hope you like it!

Very easy, but I can't ever get it to taste as good as IHOP's. Not sure what I can add or do to make it taste better.
