How to make it

  • Mix salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic well together. Season steaks liberally on both sides. Using a hammer or meat tenderizer, pound steaks to tenderize and work the seasonins into the meat.
  • Place flour in shallow dish, bread crumbs in a shallow dish, and beat egg in with buttermilk in a shallow dish. Dredge steak in flour then dip in egg mixture and coat both sides in bread crumbs. Make sure bread crumbs are coated evenly.
  • Heat oil in cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook steaks about 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Adjust heat as needed. Steaks should not get too brown - chocolate brown is too brown. Turn steaks once. Drain on paper towels. Keep steak warm in oven until gravy is ready.
  • For gravy:
  • Heat 2 tbsp of reserved oil in skillet. Add flour and cook until paste is formed. Make sure not lumpy. Add chicken broth and whisk to combine. Simmer, scraping sides of pan to incorporate bits into gravy. Add half and half and continue stirring until gravy is the desired consistancy. Add more chicken broth if needed. Serve and enjoy!!

    My granny used to make this for me, sans the chili powder, and always called it Chicken Fried Steak. Delicious but never had it with sirloin steak; she usually used the cheapest boneless steak she could get. Thanks for the memories and chicken fried steak next Wed. RJ
