A classic American dish, typical in regions such as the south, mid-west and southwest. Steak is pounded thin, then dredged in egg and flour, before being deep-fried and served with a white sausage gravy. Enjoy with a big plate of buttered mashed potatoes.
my whole family loved this recipe my 7 year old daughter had 3 helpings its a bit labor intensive but worth it - 09 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Loved this comfort food! I did add a little garlic and some seasoning salt to the flour and deep fried it as well. Awesome! To help the batter stick together- after coating the steaks, I put them in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. They were perfect. This recipe is very versatile as well. You could use any kind of thin meat, IMHO. Thanks for sharing! - 19 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A chicken fried steak does not have chicken. It is called chicken fried because it is fried with a batter on it like chicken - 30 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
