Chicken Fried Steak

Introduction

Traditional country style. My father in law is the king of country fried steaks and these are his favorite! These are lower in calories than the original, but still an indulgence. Enjoy!!

Ingredients

    6 -3oz cube steaks
    2 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour (can use all wheat flour if you do not have garbanzo flour on hand)
    1 tsp seasoned salt
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp black pepper
    2 tsp garlic powder
    1 Tbsp dried parsley
    4 Tbsp canola oil
    2- 1 gallon ziplock bags

    **The calories are a bit higher on here than what it actually is, you will have some of the flour , buttermilk, and eggs left over, and not all the oil is absorbed. But I had to put exactly what I used. I would say that these each actually have around 250 cal.**

Directions

Place steaks in large ziplock bag, pour buttermilk over the steaks. Remove as much air as you can & seal. Let sit for 15 min in refrigerator.
Meanwhile, pour all dry ingredients in large ziplock bag, seal & shake to mix. Pour 1/4 cup of mixture onto a plate.
Pour oil in nonstick pan and preheat on med.
While oil is heating remove steaks, one at a time, from buttermilk. Let as much milk drip off as possible, dredge in plate of flour mixture. Then dip both sides in eggs. Place steak in ziplock bag with flour, shake to cover steak with flour mixture. Place steak in heated pan with oil. Repeat with remaining steaks.
Cook steaks on first side until crisp & brown, about 5 min. Turn and cook and additional 2-3 min or until done.
Serve with white gravy & mashed potatoes, if desired.

    LOVE IT! I served this last night to my family and they all loved it! I used all whole wheat flour and didn't use the garbanzo bean flour. But other than that I followed the recipe. Great recipe. - 3/30/09

  • I made this last night and I absolutely loved it! I have never made chicken fried steak before, but this recipe made it so easy. I used creole seasoning instead of seasoned salt and dried parsley because I didn't have those ingredients. - 3/24/13

  • This was my first recipe from Sparks and we loved it. I served it over sautéed onions and peppers rather than make a gravy. It was delish!
