Chicken fried steak

Servings: 2 servings

Where to find the BEST chicken fried steak and fried chicken was the topic of conversation when I was growing up in Oklahoma. It seemed every picnic or cafeteria (yes I said cafeteria) served delicious chicken fried steak and fried chicken and they never had enough.

I’m on a quest to embrace my Oklahoma roots and celebrate the foods that are prevalent in the state.  This is my classic chicken fried steak recipe and though I offer a fried chicken recipe on HMFG it’s not classic to Oklahoma cuisine but it’s still delicious. And if you’re interested here is the link to the fried chicken recipe.



Cut the steaks into 4 pieces if the need to be cut.

Add the flour and paprika to a plate.

Then use a fork and mix the flour and paprika together well.

Next dip the steaks into the lightly beaten egg.

Then coat the steaks with the flour mixture.

Next add the steaks back to the egg mixture and coat the steaks in the flour mixture again.

Heat the oil to a medium heat.

When the oil is hot, add the steaks into the oil one at a time (unless you have a large enough sauté pan or fryer to handle both steaks at the same time) into the oil.

Fry each steak for 2 minutes each side or until both sides are golden brown.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on the finished fried steaks.

Serve with red skinned mashed potatoes and gravy.
