Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Ive always been told that Country Fried Steak is made with brown gravy and Chicken Fried Steak is made with white gravy.

Does anyone know if the Buttermilk in this recipe could be replaced with Evaporated Milk?

Hi there. Buttermilk is different than evaporated milk. If you wanted to use evaporated milk, you would have to sour it by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or 1 tablespoon lemon juice to 1/2-cup evaporated milk to 1/2 cup water. Let stand 5 minutes before using. Enjoy!

I found that when I've tried a similar recipe that the breading comes off too when I try to flip it, one suggestion that worked for me. I fired up the frydaddy. Take out the basket, and put in one or two at a time, they aren't touching each other or a pan, and let it get golden brown before removing. Gonna give these a shot again tomorrow

Every time I try to fry these steaks, the crust comes off ... whether it's flour or buttermilk. The same thing with fried chicken. My solutions: Cracker Barrel for the fried steak. KFC for the fried chicken.

I don't know what I did wrong, but the breading all came off when I tried to turn them in the pan! Very disappointing.

I don't know if you will see this mentormom but it might help someone, I have found that when using flour milk coating combination if i lightly flour the meat then into milk then again into flour the coating clings much better to meat during cooking another idea is to follow this recipe but use cube steak cut into bite size pieces it is like the best steak nuggets ever!! Yummmmy

Can't wait to try iy
