REAL chicken fried steak!

Don't you hate ordering chicken fried steak at a restaurant, and it's those awful frozen patties?

That doesn't happen at my house.

Mix all purpose flour with seasoned salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder.

Take cube steak, soak in an egg/milk mixture (or buttermilk), then dredge in the flour mixture.

Heat crisco or butter in a cast iron skillet to sizzling. Pan fry the breaded cube steak.

Make gravy by melting 2 tbsp butter, whisk in 2 tbsp flour, add 1 cup beef stock and 1 cup milk*.

*Or if you want white gravy, add 2 cups milk.

Add more flour if you want thick gravy.

Add black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, seasoned salt.

Add "better than bouillon" beef base if you want.

That is real chicken fried steak!

You can do the same with chicken breasts; Then it becomes "chicken fried chicken."
