Quick Country-Fried Steak

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"That delicious old-country taste right at home. Always a big hit. Whip up some mashed potatoes and even some peas and carrots and you've got a whole meal ready to go! Amount of left-over mixture depends on how evenly and how thoroughly you coat each steak. Tweaking and experimenting will be required to nail down a better proportion ratio so that there is less mix left over."

  1. Beat 2/3 cup milk and eggs together in a bowl. Whisk crackers, 3/4 cup flour, and 1 teaspoon salt together in a shallow bowl.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  3. Dip each steak into the milk-egg mixture; transfer to cracker mixture and press to coat evenly.
  4. Fry coated steaks in the hot oil until browned, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Transfer cooked steaks to a serving platter, retaining drippings in the skillet.
  5. Stir 1/2 cup flour into steak drippings until dissolved and pasty, 3 to 4 minutes. Cook and stir onion into flour mixture until evenly coated, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour 2 3/4 cup milk into onion mixture; cook and stir until gravy is smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup oil to gravy; cook and stir until incorporated and gravy is boiling, about 1 minute. Season gravy with 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper; serve alongside steak.

I am not a good cook but I tried this last week and it was awesome!! Finally made gravy that was more than enough in quantity, and tasted great! Normally I only like brown gravy but this was r...

This was delicious. The only changes I made was to cut the recipe in half since I only had 3 steaks to prepare. I will be making this again!

This was very good and very easy. Our cube steak was tough, but that's not the recipe's fault. Made country gravy from a package. Quicker that way.

I used Bread Crumbs instead of crackers.

The gravy had no flavor, steak had no spice recommendations and tasted very oily.

I made this just like it was written and my family loved it! Thank you for sharing. The only thing I did differently, was I used Venison cube steak.

Followed the recipe exactly. It was terrific!
