Chicken Fried Steak



Chicken Fried Steak is one of my hubby's favorite foods. When we eat out he always checks the menu to see if they have it and then he asks the waiters about it...if its made from scratch or comes from a box, pre-made and frozen (you would be surprised at how many are not freshly made...). I found a recipe but it looked a little difficult and had ingredient that I didn't have on hand...so I improvised and came up with my own recipe. I thought I would try to score some brownie points with the hubby, so I dove right in and made it....He loved it. Its easy(hmmm...no need for any restaurant to serve the yucky pre-made stuff) and tastes delicious! Maybe you should try it out on your hubby, try to score some brownie points too...maybe you'll even get lucky and he will wash up the dishes...maybe-

Chicken Fried Steak
1c. flour
2 t. garlic powder
1 1/2 t. salt
2 t. onion powder
1 1/2 t. pepper
1 c. buttermilk
2 c. crushed Ritz crackers
1 c. potato flakes (not pearls)
6 cubed steaks
3-5 T oil

Prepare:
2 packages of Country Gravy mix (I use generic...but any will do), according to package instructions.

In a bowl combine flour and seasonings. In a separate bowl place cracker crumbs and potato flakes. Place buttermilk in a pie tin or shallow dish. Coat steaks with flour mixture, then dip into buttermilk and then coat with cracker crumb mixture.

In an electric skillet or large frying pan, heat oil. Place coated cube steak into hot pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked to your liking. Remove from pan and serve. Top with Country Gravy if desired.
