Chicken Fried Steak w/Pan-Style Gravy
Recipe of Sarah Shoemaker
I decided to share a family recipe this week; this is my favorite
comfort food. The gravy tastes wonderful on mashed potatoes as well...
4 cube steaks - about 6 oz. each
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. of each: salt, pepper, paprika
1 cup of cooking oil or about 1 1/4 inch deep in a large skillet
1 1/4 cup milk
2 T flour
1/2 tsp. of each: salt, pepper, paprika, rubbed sage
Combine flour, 1 tsp. salt, pepper & paprika until well blended in a medium sized bowl. Dredge each piece of steak one at a time into the flour mixture; be sure to work flour into all the cuts on the meat.
Heat oil to very hot, about 375 degrees. Using tongs place two pieces of steak into the oil and fry for 2-3 mintues or nicely browned on each side.
Transfer steaks to a warm plate, cover to keep warm.
Pour off all but 2T of the cooking oil. Return pan to medium-low heat. Whisk in 2T of flour and let cook for a minute; slowly pour in milk whisking constantly and continue to whisk until gravy is thickened, about 3 mintues. Add remaining 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, paprika, and rubbed sage. Whisk until well blended. Serve over steaks.
Mmmm... This Recipe is Awesome!...
