Chicken Fried Steak

"Doesn't this just scream comfort food?"

4 beef cube steaks
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed*
1/2 cup flour
3 eggs, beaten
salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder, desired amount**
1 packet of McCormick Original Country Gravy Mix, prepared according to package directions
Prepared mashed potatoes
In 3 separate large plastic storage or Zip-loc bags, place crushed saltine crackers, flour and beaten eggs.  (Using plastic bags allows for easy clean-up, but if you prefer use 3 glass pans for your breading stations.)  Season each with desired amounts of salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders.  One at a time, place cube steaks first in seasoned flour, then in seasoned egg and finally in seasoned cracker crumbs.  In a large frying pan over medium heat, saute steaks in about 1/4 inch of canola oil for about 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked thoroughly and golden brown.  Serve with mashed potatoes and country gravy.
*Crush saltine crackers in a large, sealed plastic storage bag with a rolling pan.
**Make sure and season the crackers, flour and eggs well.


  1. Just what I have been surfing around for this morning. Hubby asked for chicken fried steak cutlets for dinner, and I am okay what the heck is that. To the computer I go, and boy what a time I had. Well yeah sure found some pretty fancy recipes out there, but wanted something that I could make and not too many fancy ingredients. Will let you know what the hubby thinks and a big thanks!


I really appreciate your comments! Thanks!
