Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken fried steak is Southern comfort food at it’s finest. A crispy, crunchy fried beef dish with a delectable, creamy gravy. It makes a wonderful dinner or breakfast. While the name can be misleading there is no chicken involved in the preparation. Instead, the name refers to how this dish is prepared and it’s similarities to making fried chicken.

The components of chicken fried steak are straightforward and simple. First, there is the tenderized round steak, known as cube steak. Followed by a seasoned flour breading. Once breaded it’s fried to crunchy, golden perfection. Topping it all is the peppery, creamy gravy.

Mashed potatoes and green beans are the classic side dishes when serving for dinner. While a couple sunny-side-up eggs turn chicken fried steak into a hearty breakfast. Mix things up and serve with your favorite vegetable side dish, fry up some crispy potatoes, or serve on a bun with a side of fries.
