Chicken Fried Steak

One of our favorite recipes is chicken fried steak. While it might not be the healthiest choice it is surely a comforting dish. We usually serve ours with mashed potatoes and green beans. I am really excited to be serving this because most of the meal, now that we finally have green beans, will be from off our land.

Chicken Fried Steak with Milk Gravy

Cubed steak

Place enough oil in a pan to coat the bottom, put that on medium heat while you prepare your steak. In a bowl, place 1 Cup flour and add 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper (more if you prefer). Stir that up and then dredge your steak into the flour mixture coating both sides well. Place each piece of steak in pan and cook until browned on both sides. Remove steak to a plate while you make your gravy.

Place about 1/4 cup flour into skillet with meat drippings. Add a little more salt and pepper and stir this over medium heat until the flour is slightly browned. Slowly pour in 1 and 1/2 cups of milk, stirring constantly. continue stirring, with a wire whisk to help with lumps, over low heat until thickened and there are no lumps, (or at least not many!). Add a little more milk if you prefer thinner gravy. Return steaks to the pan and turn to coat with gravy on both sides.

You can serve steak and gravy together in a bowl or serve gravy on the side.

Enjoy. Then go for a brisk, long walk to burn off those calories!


  1. Yep. One of my favorites. However, instead of a walk, go to the kitchen to get a piece of chocolate pie.


  2. YUM! Having that for dinner tonight!

  3. This cracks me up! 100% Comfort food!

    And I hope that it soothes your husband, and keeps him content while his body continues to recover.

    Maybe throw in a few comic books? And a game of Scrabble?

    Oh, and a blackberry cobbler.

  4. What Dan said! That looks fantastic!!
