For the Chicken Fried Steak

For the Cream Gravy


For the Chicken Fried Steak:

  • In a frying pan, heat some oil
  • In a separate bowl, beat eggs.
  • Add milk to the eggs and stir well to combine.
  • In another bowl, season some flour with your favorite seasonings.
  • Dredge beef cutlets and dredge in the seasoned flour, making sure they are coated evenly.
  • Next, dip the floured cutlets into the egg-milk wash.
  • Coat the cutlets once again with the seasoned flour.
  • Once the oil in the frying pan is hot, place the dredged cutlets into the pan and fry them until they are golden brown. This should take about 10 minutes.
  • Turn the cutlets over and cook for an additional 5 minutes until both sides are golden brown.
  • Once the cutlets are cooked through, remove them from the pan and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

For the Gravy:

  • In the same frying pan, drain off all but 1-2 tablespoons of the drippings. Make sure to leave all the cooked bits in the pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and seasonings, and pour in the milk.
  • Whisk the mixture thoroughly until it is well-combined.
  • Heat the pan with drippings and bits over medium heat.
  • Pour the milk and flour mixture into the pan.
  • Continuously stir or whisk the gravy in the pan for 10-15 minutes or until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Taste the gravy to check the seasoning and add more salt or pepper as needed.
  • Serve the gravy generously over each piece of chicken fried steak.
