Chicken Fried Steak by Alton Brown



This classic Chicken Fried Steak recipe comes from Alton Brown.

Ingredients

  • 1- 2 pounds cube steak
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 - 3 whole organic eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup high heat cooking oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

Directions

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Season each piece of cube steak on both sides with the salt and pepper.

Place the flour into a pie pan. Place the eggs into a separate pie pan. Dredge the meat on both sides in the flour followed by the egg and back into the flour again. Repeat with all the pieces of meat.

Place the meat onto a plate and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before cooking.

Place enough of the oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch slope-sided skillet and set over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook each piece on both sides until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes per side. Remove the steaks to a wire rack set in a half sheet pan and place into the oven. Repeat until all of the meat is browned.

Add the remaining oil, or at least 1 tablespoon, to the pan. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the flour left over from the dredging. Add the chicken broth and deglaze the pan. Whisk until the gravy comes to a boil and begins to thicken. Add the milk and thyme and whisk until the gravy coats the back of a spoon, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste, with more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve the gravy over the steaks.
