Mr. Food: Texas Chicken Fried Steak

Mr. Food

Serves: 4

Ingredients
  • 4 beef cubed steaks (1 to 1-1/4 pounds total), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
Instructions
  1. In a large resealable bag, marinate the cube steaks in the Worcestershire sauce for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
     
  2. Place flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Pour buttermilk into another shallow dish.
     
  3. Dip steaks in flour, coating completely, then in buttermilk and again in the flour.
     
  4. In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add steaks and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and coating is golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter and cover to keep warm.
     
  5. Add 1/3 cup of the remaining seasoned flour to the skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until flour is browned, stirring constantly. Whisk in milk and broth, stirring until thickened. Serve gravy over steak.
Notes
If you would like a smokier taste, substitute 3 tablespoons bacon drippings for vegetable oil. And you should find masa harina near the cornmeal in your local supermarket; if you'd prefer, you can use fine cornmeal as a substitute.
