Description

I cut cube steak into bite size pieces to make chicken fried steak a little more kid friendly and paired it with milk gravy. This, my friends, is comfort food at its best!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Seasoned Salt (I Used Lawry's)
  • 2 teaspoons Coarse Ground Pepper
  • 2 pounds Cube Steak, Cut Into 1 1/2 To 2 Inch Pieces
  • 4 cups Vegetable Oil, For Frying
  • 2 Tablespoons Bacon Grease (drippings)
  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • ¾ teaspoons Coarse Ground Black Pepper
  • 3-½ cups Whole Milk

Preparation

Heat oil in a deep cast iron skillet to about 350 degrees (F).

While the oil heats, in a medium sized bowl, add milk and egg and beat until well combined. In a pie plate or other shallow dish, combine flour, seasoned salt and pepper until well mixed.

Dredge each piece of cube steak into flour mixture, the dip in egg and milk mixture and then back into flour, coating all sides. Give each piece a little shake to remove extra flour and carefully place into the hot oil. Repeat with remaining cube steak, cooking in batches. Cook each piece about 3 to 4 minutes on each side until lightly browned. They will cook quickly. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. You may want to lower your heat slightly after the first batch, especially when using cast iron.

For the gravy:
In an 8-inch cast iron skillet, over medium-high heat, add bacon grease. When grease is melted, add flour, salt and pepper, whisking until all combined. Whisk occasionally as flour mixture starts to brown. You want it to get golden brown, but be careful to not let it burn. Gradually whisk in 3 cups of milk, and continue to whisk until it is thick and starts to bubble, adding more milk if it gets too thick. Lower heat and keep warm until serving.

Serve the steak smothered with the gravy with mashed potatoes and some buttered Texas Toast.
Enjoy!
Miss

This recipe ended up being served for dinner one night by accident. I was trying Ree’s chicken fried steak using cube steak and it all fell apart. I was left with small bites of cube steak, seasoned and fried. It was really good!

Very tasty, and so easy to eat in the smaller bite-size pieces. They were a big hit with my daughter…and me and my husband, too!

I would never have thought to make chicken fried steak into a finger type food! Truly delicious! And by making them into bites, they didn’t get overly oily. GENIUS! And that gravy is beyond words! Thanks for sharing!
