    Southern Redneck Chicken-Fried Steak

    Braggin' Rights Chicken Fried Steak

    Ingredients:

    2 pounds Roundsteak, sliced 1/2 inch thick and twice-tenderized by the butcher
    2 cups All-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons Baking powder
    1 teaspoon Baking soda
    1 teaspoon Fresh ground black pepper
    3/4 teaspoon Salt
    1 1/2 cup Buttermilk
    1 large Egg
    1 tablespoon Hot red pepper sauce
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    Crisco for deep frying

    ***CLASSIC CREAM GRAVY***

    1/4 cup Pan drippings
    3 tablespoons All-purpose flour
    2 cups Evaporated milk
    1 cup Unsalted beef stock
    1/2 teaspoon Fresh ground black pepper
    Salt to taste

    ***OPTIONAL***

    Mashed potatoes
    Homemade buttermilk biscuits
    Directions:

    Cut steak into 4 equal portions. Pound until each is about 1/4 inch thick. Place flour in a shallow bowl. In a second dish, stir together baking powder, soda, pepper and salt; mix in buttermilk, egg, pepper sauce and garlic. The mixture will be thin.

    Dredge each steak first in flour, then in batter. Dunk steaks back into flour and dredge well, patting in the flour until the surface of the meat is dry. Add enough shortening to a deep cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven to deep fry steaks in at least 4 inches of fat. Bring temperature of shortening to 325 degrees.

    Fry the steaks, pushing them under the fat or turning them as they bob to the surface, for 7 to 8 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Drain steaks on paper towels and transfer to a platter. Keep warm while preparing Classic Cream Gravy. Divide steaks among 4 plates and serve with mashed potatoes and gravy.

    CLASSIC CREAM GRAVY: After cooking chicken-fried steak or similar dish, pour off the top fat through a strainer, leaving about 1/2 cup pan drippings in the bottom of the skillet. Return any browned cracklings from the strainer to the skillet before starting the gravy. Place skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle in the flour, stirring to avoid lumps. Add milk and stock.
    Simmer until liquid is thickened and the raw flour taste is gone, about 3 minutes. Stir the gravy up from the bottom frequently, scraping up any browned bits. Season with pepper and salt. Makes about 3 cups.


    It don't get no better...

    That was funny when GoW ordered it up here in the Chiang Mai Saloon. This hunk of fried beef arrived and she was just about to start asking the waitress where the hell her chicken was. Stoopid menu had me fooled, too.

    Maybe we should start interfering with British menus to confuse the yanks. "16 oz T-bone steak with French Fries" could be carrot soup with a small salad.

    Quagmire Fries?
    Sounds like I made a wrong turn and ended up in a backpacker cooking forum

    Chicken Fried Steak was actually designed to confuse yankees *
    Some yankees actually call it country fried steak.
    BTW calling someone from the Southern US a yank is like calling an Australian a Kiwi.

    Sorry to go back on topic ladies, but to make something like that with breadcrumbs, do you mix the breadcrumbs and flour together or just use breadcrumbs?

    I never use breadcrumbs myself.I just layer up alternate coats of buttermilk and flour mix.You can also use the left over batter to make onion rings.At my mom's fascist restaurant they will freeze the the pre-battered CFS so that batter sticks to the meat when it hits the hot oil. I suggest you use a deep pan or a Dutch Oven so that you can fry it properly.A deep pan also minimizes oil spatter on your stove.As in frying anything you want the oil good an hot so that the Chicken Fried Steak cooks quickly and doesn't get greasy.In addition to traditional sides such as fries/chips I like to serve fried(and battered) okra.Extra thick toasted bread called Texas Toast is always served with CFS.I like to use peanut oil beacuse of it''s flavour and high smoking temperature.Please make sure your guests are not allergic to peanuts! Serve with either iced tea or a tasty dark beer such as San Miguel Dark.

    Bit long for everyday use, I reckon. "Monkey Fries" as a short-form, though that may be interpreted in an entirely different way, as in : the French eat French Fries, the Americans eat Monkey Fries.
