How to make it
- Cut steak into 4 equal portions.
- Pound until each is about 1/4 inch thick.
- Place flour in a shallow bowl.
- In a second dish, stir together baking powder, soda, pepper and salt; mix in buttermilk, egg, pepper sauce and garlic.
- The mixture will be thin.
- Dredge each steak first in flour, then in batter.
- Dunk steaks back into flour and dredge well, patting in the flour until the surface of the meat is dry.
- Add enough shortening (lard)[or a combination of both!] to a deep cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven to deep fry steaks in at least 3 inches of fat. Bring temperature of shortening to 325 degrees.
- Fry the steaks, pushing them under the fat or turning them as they bob to the surface, for 7 to 8 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
- Drain steaks on paper towels and transfer to a platter.
- Keep warm while preparing Classic Cream Gravy.
- Divide steaks among 4 plates and serve with mashed potatoes and gravy. .
- CLASSIC CREAM GRAVY:
- After cooking chicken-fried steak , pour off the top fat through a strainer, leaving about 1/2 cup pan drippings in the bottom of the skillet.
- Return any browned cracklings from the strainer to the skillet before starting the gravy.
- Place skillet over medium heat.
- Sprinkle in the flour, stirring to avoid lumps.
- Add milk and stock.
- Simmer until liquid is thickened and the raw flour taste is gone, about 3 minutes.
- Stir the gravy up from the bottom frequently, scraping up any browned bits.
- Season with pepper and salt.
- Makes about 3 cups.
