Country-Fried Steak Recipe
If you polled 100 Southerners on their favorite food, about 50% of them would likely swear that country-fried steak is the best dish our region has to offer. This classic comfort food recipe reminds us of growing up in our Grandma's kitchen, with its crispy, hearty texture and creamy gravy. Country-fried steak is made with cube steaks, a tenderized cut of meat that makes a great weeknight dinner entrée. We coated each steak in a crushed saltine cracker mixture, and then fried until golden brown. And, don't forget the gravy! This creamy white sauce uses a little bit of your steak-infused cooking oil, a few simple seasonings, and milk – all ingredients you've likely already got in the pantry or fridge. Whether it's a cold winter day and you're looking for a little Southern pick-me-up or you're hoping to break out the classics to impress houseguests, country-fried steak is one the best recipes we've got in our back pocket.
