Recipe

Texas Chicken Fried Steak

  1. 4 beef cubed steaks (1 to 1-1/4 pounds total), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  2. 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  3. 1 cup flour
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  6. 3/4 cup buttermilk
  7. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  8. 1 1/4 cups milk
  9. 1/4 cup chicken broth
  1. In a large resealable bag, marinate cube steaks in Worcestershire sauce 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
     
  2. Place flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Pour buttermilk into another shallow dish.
     
  3. Dip steaks in flour mixture, coating completely, then in buttermilk and again in flour. Reserve remaining flour mixture.
     
  4. In a large deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking.  Add steaks and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and coating is golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter and cover to keep warm.
     
  5. To make the gravy, add 1/3 cup of remaining flour mixture to skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until flour is browned, stirring constantly. Whisk in milk and broth, stirring until thickened. Serve gravy over steak.
