Chicken Fried Steak with Gravy

Servings: 4 servings
For the Steak:
– 4 cube steaks (about 1/2 pound each)
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon onion powder
– 1 teaspoon paprika
– 2 teaspoons kosher salt
– 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
– 2 large eggs
– 1/4 cup milk
– Vegetable oil for frying
For the Gravy:
– 1/4 cup pan drippings
– 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 2 cups whole milk
– Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Start by taking a shallow dish and whisking together the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. This is your breading mixture.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and 1/4 cup of milk until it’s all good and mixed.
3. Dredge each steak first in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Dip it in the egg mixture, then back in the flour mixture to coat well. Set each steak aside on a wire rack.
4. Pour enough vegetable oil into a large skillet to cover the bottom and heat over medium-high heat. Fry the steaks in batches, if necessary, for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they’re golden brown and crisp. Set ’em aside and cover with foil to keep warm.
5. For the gravy, first pour off the excess oil from the skillet, leaving about 1/4 cup of pan drippings. Sprinkle in the flour and whisk over medium heat until it’s a golden paste.
6. Gradually pour in the milk while continuously whisking until the gravy thickens, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to your liking.
7. Serve those beautiful steaks with generous spoonfuls of that creamy gravy.
Variations & Tips:
Now, if you want to add a little kick to your gravy, a pinch of cayenne pepper does the trick. Some folks like to add a splash of Worcestershire sauce to the egg mixture for a deeper flavor. There’s room at the table for creativity, so you go ahead and make it your own.
