Country Fried Steaks

~ Simple country fried steak recipe ~
Take a package of beef cube steaks, salt and pepper, and coat each steak in flour.
Then dip each floured steak into a bowl of 1 egg and 1 cup of milk. COAT each steak AGAIN in flour. Now they're ready for pan frying!

Have an iron skillet ready with hot grease.
Simple and quick. Serve with your favorite side dishes.
After the steaks are removed from the pan, pour off all but about 2 tablespoons of oil, keeping as many as possible of the browned bits in the pan.
Heat the oil over medium heat until hot. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons flour (use the left-over flour from the chicken fried steak recipe) in the hot oil.
Stir with a wooden spoon, quickly, to brown the flour. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup water, mixed together, stirring constantly with the wooden spoon and mashing out any lumps.
Lower heat, and gravy will begin to thicken. Continue cooking and stirring a few minutes until gravy reaches desired thickness.

Yummy! I have tried making my own chicken fried steaks before but the coating always came off. How long do you cook it and does your coating fall off?

Remember, you are coating TWICE. First in flour, then in the milk/egg, then AGAIN in flour. Cook in HOT grease, and try not to turn over too many times. It should be good and cooked within 15 to 20 min.

My coating didn't fall off, but it used to before I realized I had to coat in flour twice. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out!

Yummy!! Where's the Texas toast? :c)
Here lately I've been lazy and buying them at Sam's.. but I will admit the homemade ones are the best.

I was looking for the Texas toast too, but realized we had eaten the last of'm last night with our fish dinner.

I TOO buy the frozen ones at Sams, or HEB, but I decided, what the heck, I'll make homemade tonight.
