As soon as I saw Grandma get the cubed steak out of the freezer I knew we were in for a culinary treat. Because let me tell you Grandma could make the best country fried steak I have ever tasted. And the gravy oh the gravy was so tasty and delicious. And those biscuits were just made to be covered in Grandmas homemade gravy.

Here I'm going to share a delicious recipe for Country Fried Steak that will produce for you wonderful country style steak and gravy just like Grandma used to make.

Your going to want a package of beef cube steak to make the below recipe for country fried steak. You can usually find a package of beef cube steak in your local supermarket.

You want to double bread your country fried steak and we are going to do this by first dipping your pieces of beef cube steak into a milk/egg mixture and then into your dry seasoned flour and then back into the milk and egg mixture and then back into the dry seasoned flour. Then after you have double breaded your beef cube steak you will want to fry your cube steak in a large pan with vegetable oil until the steak is brown on each side and done in the middle.

Milk / Egg Mixture.

To make your Milk / Egg mixture you will want to mix together 1 quart of milk and 6 large eggs until it is very well mixed.

Seasoned Flour Mixture.

1. 4 Cups of Self Rising Flour.

2. 1 Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.

3. 1 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper.

For Your Gravy

Once you have cooked all your cube steak you will want 1 cup of vegetable cooking oil and 1 cup of flour in the pan where you cooked the steak. You want to stir the flour into the vegetable cooking oil and keep stirring until your flour is browned but not burnt.

As soon as your flour is brown you want to add 1 gallon of half and half and keep stirring the gravy on medium heat until the gravy has thickened. You can now add salt and pepper to taste and once you have the salt and pepper mixed into your gravy you can pour your gravy up in a bowl or other container. You want to serve each piece of cooked country style steak with some of your gravy over the piece of steak. And if you followed my directions you now have some of the most delicious country fried steak you will ever taste and you can even call it chicken fried steak if you want to.

I am absolutely drooling. If we want chicken fried steak here in the Philadelphia area, we've got a 2-hour drive to the nearest Iron Skillet truck stop restaurant. I am definitely going to try your recipe...and save the wear and tear on the car.
