Farmmom's Chicken Fried Steak

This recipe is one of my Mom's. Back in the 70's she went to work in a local cafe just to steal the recipe for this.

First start out with a good Cube steak.

In a flat bowl mix up some flour, salt, pepper, seasoning salt, and cayenne pepper. You will have to play with the spicing on your flour mixture to get the spices the way you want. This is the same flour mixture I use for Spicy Fried Chicken.

In another flat bowl mix a couple eggs and a little milk.

Next crunch up a bunch of saltine crackers. You will want a mixture of chunks of cracker and fine crushed stuff. I use a ziplock bag and a rolling pin. Pour the crackers in a pan ( a cakepan works well ) to help keep the mess down.

Now just make an assembly line of your flour, egg mixture and crackers.

Coat the Cube Steak in the flour mixture.

Then Dredge it in the egg mixture.

Then place that in the crackers. Cover the steak in the crackers and press hard till the steak is completely coated in the crackers.

If you're wondering what to do with your leftover egg mixture once you've got your steaks ready to fry, I suggest showing your pets some love. They'll thank you for it.

Place the steak in a skillet with vegetable oil over medium high heat and cook till golden brown on one side. Flip steak and repeat on the other side.

Serve with Pan Gravy and mashed potatoes. Or Fried potatoes and green beans with bacon and onions, as shown here:

Photographer/taste tester's note: You can save your leftover flour and crackers. Put them in airtight containers and they'll be ready for the next time you want some of Farmmom's Chicken Fried Steak.

Okay, so I was going through withdrawal and had to make your CFS last night. Was good-- not as good as yours, but good, nonetheless.

Missing you already!
