Country Fried Steak

Country Fried Steak

Country fried to perfection with a golden-brown crust.


1½ cups whole milk
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp each, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
3 lbs cube steak
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup canola oil

For the Gravy

1/3 cup flour
3 to 4 cups whole milk
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 tsp seasoned salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Combine milk and eggs in one bowl and flour with the spices in another to create a breading station. Season cube steaks with salt and pepper to taste and dredge in flour mixture shaking off excess. Coat in milk/egg mixture and dredge again in flour mixture. Place a sauté pan over medium heat. Cook the meat until the edges start to look golden brown, about two minutes per side. Pour the grease into a heatproof bowl. Without cleaning the pan, return it to the stove over medium-low heat. Pour ¼ cup of retained cooking oil back to pan until hot. Sprinkle flour evenly and whisk, forming a roux. Keep cooking until the roux reaches a golden brown. Slowly pour in three cups milk, whisking constantly. Let mixture cook over medium-low heat until smooth and thick, whisking 6-8 minutes. Season to taste with the seasoned salt, pepper, soy sauce, and Worcestershire.
