Now who doesn't love mama's homestyle cooking? These Down Home Chicken Fried Steaks are making our mouths water just thinking them.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 (4-ounce) cubed steaks
  • 38 saltine crackers, crushed (about 1 sleeve)
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups milk, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup peanut oil
  • 1 (2.64-ounce) package country gravy mix
  • 1 cup water

What to Do

  1. Sprinkle salt evenly over steaks; set aside.
  2. Combine crackers, flour, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Whisk together 3/4 cup milk and eggs in a separate shallow dish. Dredge steaks in cracker mixture; dip in milk mixture and again in cracker mixture.
  4. Pour oil into a 12-incch skillet (do not use a nonstick skillet); heat oil to 360 degrees F. (See Note.) Fry steaks 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain steaks on paper towels.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare gravy according to package directions, using remaining 1 cup milk and 1 cup water. Serve over steaks.


Don't use a nonstick skillet when frying up these golden, delicious steaks - it can't handle the heat and will smoke.

Wonderful old time recipe

I know this will be delicious....I have fried chicken and pork chops with this method and the crispiness is the best!! Please everyone, try to be nice; everyone makes mistakes and makes grammar errors on line. No need to comment with cruel remarks. We're here for recipes not an English course!!

My grandmother and mother use to fix chicken fried steak this way and so do I. Love it, love the crispy crunch and the gravy made with the crispy drippings.

@cnrt4950...If you don't like the sight, move on. No comment needed!!

SITE, people, the word is SITE! Jeez, learn how to spell correctly and maybe your cooking would even improve.

Thanks, speederms! I've been thinking that myself so many times! Just never said it.

I think your new sight is trash

If this sight dosen't please you, just move on. No comment needed!!

Your response to the "site" was incorrect. The original writer was correct spelling of the site for the recipe. It should be spelled "SITE" when talking about a website! I will try the recipe and give you my feedback.

Is that why you give the recipe 4 out of 5 stars? Are you confused, or what?

this is wonderful i never thought of adding crakers but it turned out better than mine
