Chicken Fried Steak Like Cracker Barrel's

Chicken Fried Steak Like Cracker Barrel’s

Basically we make this with tenderized cube steaks, dipped into beaten egg and milk wash and coated in seasoned flour and then pan fried till crispy and browned and transferred to a baking pan and kept warm in a low oven up to 30 minute to serve with the white gravy as given here.

4 cube steaks each about 4 by 6 inches, tenderized briefly with meat hammer.
1 beaten egg plus 1/4-cup milk
2 cups self-rising flour
2 tablespoons salt
1-teaspoon black pepper
1/2-teaspoon poultry seasoning

Moisten steak in egg wash and coat evenly but lightly in remaining combined ingredients. Brown both sides in a little hot oil in heavy skillet to lightly brown both sides.

Transfer pieces to shallow baking pan, in a single layer loosely covering in foil and bake at 325 degrees F about 30 minutes or till fork tender but not dry. A little water may be added to pan around the steaks to keep steaks from drying out no more than 1/4 inch deep.

Meanwhile prepare the gravy.
