Nothing says good ol’ down home country cookin’ like a country fried steak. They are crispy, delicious and great served with a side of eggs and biscuits and gravy for breakfast.
If breakfast isn’t your thing, try making a country fried steak sandwich for lunch. Just use Texas toast, a little mayo, lettuce and tomato. Mmm Mmmm
This recipe we’re making it for dinner so it will be service with herbed mashed potatoes and gravy – a staple around our house.
When shopping for cube steaks, look for thin steaks as they are typically more tender and take less time to cook than the thicker versions.
While my family likes the steaks seasoned with just salt and pepper, you can easily add any spices you want. If you like your meat with a kick, try adding 1 Tbsp. of Tabasco sauce to the egg wash. Other seasonings that go well with this dish are garlic, chives, parsley, thyme any type of dry steak seasoning mix. You can also use buttermilk instead of regular milk if you prefer.
