IngredientsSteak Cubed Chicken Fried

For Steak

  • 4 – ½ lb. beef cube steaks
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (Tabasco™)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups vegetable shortening for deep frying

For Gravy

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


For Steak

  1. Pound the steaks to about ¼ inch thickness.
  2. Place two cups flour in a shallow bowl.  Stir together the baking powder, baking soda, pepper, and salt in a separate shallow bowl; stir in the buttermilk, egg, Tabasco Sauce, and garlic.
  3. Dredge each steak first in the flour, then in the batter, and again in the flour.  Pat the flour onto the surface of each steak so they are completely coated with dry flour.
  4. Heat the shortening in a deep cast-iron skillet to 325⁰.  Fry the steaks until evenly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side.  Place the fried steaks on a plate with paper towels to drain.  Drain the fat from the skillet, reserving ¼ cup of the liquid and as much of the solid remnants as possible.

For Gravy

  1. Return the skillet to medium-low heat with the reserved oil.
  2.  Whisk the remaining flour into the oil.  Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release solids into the gravy.
  3. Stir in the milk, raise the heat to medium, and bring the gravy to a simmer, cook until thick, 6 to 7 minutes.  Season with kosher salt and pepper.

Spoon the gravy over the steaks to served.
