Today was Chicken Fried Steak with basic mashed potatoes, butter beans and a green salad with viniagrette.
Chicken Fried Steak
4 tablespoons butter
2 lbs. beef round steak cut into four 8 ounce pieces
1 large egg beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper fresh
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
Heat skillet to medium temperature. Add the butter and melt. In a bowl, add the beaten egg. In another bowl, add the bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Dip steaks into egg and coat. Then dip the steak into the breadcrumb mixture. Place steaks into skillet and brown. Cooking time is 10 to 15 minutes per side. When cooked, place steaks on warm plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Add flour to pan drippings. You want the flour to become light brown. You want to stir in the milk until it becomes thick. Return steaks to gravy and let simmer for 5 minutes. Serve open face over soft white bread.
