Chicken Fried Steak Recipe

How to Make Chicken Fried Steaks?


Serve: 4


  • 4 x 4-oz boneless beef chuck top-blade steaks
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kansas City steak seasoning
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes

    For gravy:
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon (optional)
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kansas City steak seasoning
  • black pepper 


  1. Trim excessive fat from the steaks. Place each steak between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet until 1/2 inch thick, then remove plastic wrap.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  3. In another shallow dish, combine the egg and the 2 tablespoons milk.
  4. Place the crushed cornflakes in a third shallow dish.
  5. Dip the steaks into the flour mixture, turning to coat evenly. Dip into the egg mixture, then into the cornflakes, turning to coat evenly.
  6. Coat a very large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat the skillet over the medium-high heat.
  7. Add in the steaks to the skillet. Cook for approximately 10-12 minutes for medium-rare (145F) to medium (160F) doneness, turning once halfway through cooking. If the steaks brown to quickly, reduce the heat to medium. Remove the steak from the skillet. Cover to keep warm.
  8. To prepare the gravy, heat the butter in the same skillet over the medium heat until melted. Add in the onion and garlic and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender. If desired, add in the bourbon, stirring to scrape up any crusty brown bits.
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together the 3/4 cup milk, the 1 tablespoon flour and the 1/4 teaspoon steak seasoning until smooth. Add in the milk mixture all at once to the onion mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly, then cook and stir 1 minute more.
  10. Serve steaks with the gravy. Sprinkle with the black pepper.
