More about this Iconic Southern Dish
Chicken fried steak is a piece of steak which is coated with a simple batter and then pan-fried. Some people say the name came about because the cooking method is the same as for fried chicken, while others say it is because the cooking oil has already been used to fry chicken. The Latin American-Italian dish Milanesa and the Austrian dish Wiener Schnitzel, are very similar to chicken fried steak. Those are usually made with veal or pork, but the coating and cooking method are very similar. Our recipe is made with beef which is thinly sliced and tenderized, and a very simple egg and flour batter, which is applied in a several layers to get it nice and thick.
Put the coated beef in the refrigerator or freezer for 15 minutes after coating it, and the coating will stick on to the meat much better. The chicken fried steak is cooked in a pan and then it is kept warm in the oven while you prepare the gravy. All the best gravies begin with the fat left in the pan from cooking meat, and to that you will add flour, broth, milk, and thyme. The result is thick, rich and goes perfectly with the chicken fried steak. Serve creamy mashed potatoes with this dish, along with your favorite veggies, and you have a complete meal.
