Chicken-Fried Steak

Chicken Fried Steak Recipe


3 Tbsp unsalted butter
3 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups whole milk
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp onion powder
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
2 tsp baking powder
Salt & pepper
4 large eggs
1/4 cup whole milk
1 pound sirloin steak tips (flap meat) cut into four 4-oz pieces- I also bought 3 sirloin tenderloin steaks & cut 1 in half to make 4 steaks
1 1/2 cups peanut or vegetable oil (I used vegetable oil)


For the Gravy:
  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the flour and garlic powder and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly whisk in the broth, milk, salt and pepper and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Cover and keep warm while preparing the steak. (The gravy can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days.)
For the Steak:
  1. Whisk the flour, cornstarch, garlic and onion powders, cayenne, baking powder, 1 tsp salt and 2 tsp pepper in a large bowl. Transfer 1 cup of the seasoned flour to a shallow dish.
  2. Beat the eggs in a second shallow dish.
  3. Add the milk to the bowl with the remaining flour mixture and rub your figures until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. Pat the steaks completely dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Score the meat lightly using a knife at 1/4 inch intervals in a crosshatch pattern on each side.
  6. Dredge each steak after scoring in the seasoned flour.
  7. Using a meat pounder, pound the steaks to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick.
  8. One at a time, coat the steaks lightly with the seasoned flour again, dip in the egg and then transfer to the bowl with the milk and flour mixture, pressing to adhere.
  9. Arrange the steaks on a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes or up to 4 hours; do not discard the milk and flour mixture.
  10. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 200 degrees (if not already done so).
  11. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until just smoking.
  12. Return 2 of the steaks to the bowl with the milk and flour mixture and turn to coat.
  13. Fry the steaks until deep golden brown and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  14. Transfer to a clean wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
  15. Repeat with the remaining steaks. Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy.
