Chicken Fried Steak

Breaded and deep fried beef cutlets are known as chicken fried steak. Serve with mashed potatoes for a classic southern meal in your own home.

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
1
lb boneless beef top loin
2
cups shortening or preferred oil for frying
1
egg, beaten
1
cup buttermilk
1/4
tsp garlic powder
1 1/2
cups all-purpose flour
1
qt milk
Directions
1.
Cut top loin crosswise into 4 (4 ounce) cutlets. Using a gliding motion, pound each cutlet thinly between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or wax paper with a moistened mallet or the side of a cleaver.
2.
In a large, heavy skillet, heat 1/2 inch shortening or oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
3.
While the shortening is heating, prepare cutlets. In a shallow bowl, beat together egg, buttermilk, salt and pepper. In another shallow dish, mix together garlic powder and 1cup flour. Dip cutlets in flour, turning to evenly coat both sides. Dip in egg mixture, coating both sides, then in flour mixture once again.
4.
Place cutlets in heated shortening. Cook until golden brown, turning once. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle with salt while hot. Repeat with remaining cutlets. Drain grease, reserving 1/2 cup.
5.
Using the reserved drippings in the pan, prepare gravy over medium heat. Blend in 1/4 cup flour to remaining oil to form a paste. Gradually add milk to desired consistency, stirring constantly. For a thicker gravy add less milk; for a thinner gravy stir in more. Heat through, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over chicken fried steak.
