A North American recipe to bring warmth and cheer around the table


Chicken Fried Steak

½ kilo Beef used for steak like rib eye or sirloin, sliced into ½” thick

*All-purpose flour

1 Tbsp Chopped parsley

*Salt and black pepper, to taste

3 Eggs, beaten

*Vegetable oil for frying


3 Tbsps Fat drippings from the fried beef

2 Tbsps Flour

2 cups Chicken broth

1 tsp Chopped parsley

*salt and ground black pepper

  1. Spread beef slices on a chopping board and pound with a meat mallet to thin out and tenderize.  Season beef with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Prepare another bowl with beaten eggs. Set aside.
  3. Dredge meat in the flour until well-coated, then dip into the beaten egg. Return the meat back to  the flour mixture. 
  4. Place all the meat in a rack and let it sit for 10 minutes to allow coating to dry up before cooking. Refrigerate if cooking later. 
  5. In a heavy skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, pan fry meat until golden brown. Once cooked, put the steak on a wire rack and let it rest before serving. Reserve some oil used for frying.  
  6. Make the gravy: In a small saucepot, heat the fat drippings. Add flour and cook in the oil for a minute. Add broth and parsley, and stir with a whisk to form a smooth gravy.  Season with salt and ground black pepper.  Simmer until mixture is thick and smooth.  Serve with the fried steak.
