Whether you cut this into strips or leave it whole the trick to a tender round steak for chicken fried steak is to really pound it out. What I've been doing for years (thanks to a very old Fannie Farmer cookbook) is to pound a small amount of flour into both sides of the meat (but pound it out really really well). Then season as you wish. We like more seasoned food so I use more salt and pepper. Everyone will have a different opinion on the seasoning so do what tastes good to you. For a heavier coating double dip your steaks in the egg and flour. For a lighter coating just dip once.
My husband and kids love this recipe. I don't use eggs when coating the steak. I do use a little seasoning salt in my flour bag and dip the steak in water first. I also cook this on a higher heat. It is more tender when it is cooked faster.
It's a good basic recipe but definitely needs a little personalization to make it more exciting. I recommend adding the salt & pepper (and any other spices you'll be using) onto the meat before pounding it the flavor comes through much better that way. I'm also considering adding a splash of Worcestershire sauce to the coating mixture next time I make them. I will be making them again though... they are much better than the pre-made kind with processed beef product.
I think this recipe is a good start to your steak fingers but I always add additional spices and herbs to everything I make. This recipe is no exception to that rule. I add Monterey grill seasoning and let my meat soak in milk for a few hours so it tenderizes before breading. I also pound it with a meat mallet before cutting into strips.
We just made these and I had to tell you they are great.. The only modifications I did was added some garlic. I think next time i will marinade my beef for a little bit after tenderizing it.. Will definately make again..
What a disappointment! My son 12 and I usually enjoy cooking together. We decided to try this recipe. While the prepping was fun it was sooo tasteless my husband couldn't even swallow it! I tried adding gravy honey anything I could think of to dip it into and finally ended up dipping it into the disposal. Oh well better luck next time...
Not bad but not good. I would definitely use another type of meat. I love a good country fried steak dish but this didn't cut it for me. I found a really good country fried steak recipe on this site that i would definitely recommend. It was called Chicken Fried Steak (it was great).
If you're looking for a simple receipe this would be it. Preparation wasn't that messy and everything took minimal time to prepare and cook. The taste was simple nothing fancy. I took others advice and added some garlic salt to pep it up a bit. I also used sandwich steaks instead of cutting up strips which helped make prep time fast. I also cooked for 2 minutes on each side which made for a crispier coating.
