How to make it

  • Whisk eggs and 2 cups mild in a bowl, reserve.
  • Mix 2 teaspoons of the seasoning and 2 cups flour in a bowl, reserve.
  • Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet to 350
  • Dredge each beef cutlet in flour
  • dip in egg wash, let extra drip off
  • Dredge in flour again, shake off extra flour
  • Use LONG tongs to lower into oil
  • Cook until golden brown avout 3-4 minutes, flip cook another 3 minutes remove with a spider, place on paper towel to drain
  • Cook all, keep warm
  • Drain all but 3 tablespoons oil from skillet.
  • Heat the oil over medium stir in the 1/4 cup flour, keep stirring... make a WHITE roux.
  • Gradually add the remaining 2 cups milk, slowly . Stir until it is as thick as you like.
  • Remove from heat season with Worcestershire, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
  • Place a cutlet on each plate, drench with gravy. Serve with potatoes and veggie ..
  • Now when they make it there.... they deep fry it.. I do the same at home. They also make the gravy 16, gallons at time and add roasted bone marrow to that... I have used the packaged white gravy that I get from a restaurant supply company or Sam’s as it speeds things up, Just season it up like listed above. But, this is how they listed it and I wanted to share...
  • So take off your boots, grab a Lone Star beer and ENJOY LIFE! And if your down Texas way.... stop in and try the REAL thing!

    Hey Line,
    Haven't spoken with you in awhile. How's everything? Thanks for this marvelous recipe. I've never been to Texas, but if I ever get there, I'll have to find Threadgills! I made this Sunday evening and aside from letting the oil get too hot (novice deep fryer here!) and getting two of my steaks a little overdone, this recipe was outstanding. Simply delicious. Thanks again!!

    I love chicken fried steak. BTW Chefjeb..if you use tongs to dip your steaks with then you don't have to worry about about getting either hand messy. ;) I've bookmarked this one to try soon.

    This is almost identical to how I may my chicken fried steak, but I have trouble with milk gravy (can do a fantastic brown gravy, so don't know what my problem is). I may try this one rather than relying on the packaged gravy mix, just to see. Sounds really good!

    You will notice that the first part of the recipe makes A LOT of the seasoning... It is good for seasoning other foods as well.

    There ain't nuthin' better than a Texas Chicken Fried Steak. Mashed Potatoes and green beans and yeah, plenty of peppery gravy. This is as good as it gets. A hint on the battering. It is a two-hand process. Use one hand for dry flour and the other for the egg wash. With flour hand drop in egg wash and use other hand to coat and then remove and drop in four, then use flour hand to dredge in flour. Result: a perfect coating that isn't gummy, but is very yummy. Good post.
