Knott's Berry Farm Chicken Fried Steak Recipe

 

What You Will Need

  • 4 (½ pound) beef cube steaks
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (e.g., Tabasco sauce)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups vegetable oil for deep frying
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

 

How to Make

  1. Pound the steaks to about ¼-inch thickness.
  2. Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl.
  3. Stir together the baking powder, baking soda, pepper, and salt in a separate shallow bowl; stir in the buttermilk, egg, hot pepper sauce, and garlic.
  4. Dredge each steak first in the flour, then in the batter, and again in the flour. Pat the flour onto the surface of each steak, so they are completely coated with dry flour.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep, cast-iron skillet to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Fry the steaks until evenly golden brown, 3 – 5 minutes per side.
  7. Place fried steaks on a plate with a paper towel to drain.
  8. Drain the fat from the skillet, reserving ¼ cup of the liquid and as much of the solid remnants as possible.
  9. Return the skillet to medium-low heat with the reserved oil.
  10. Whisk the remaining flour into the oil.
  11. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release solids into the gravy.
  12. Stir in the milk, raise the heat to medium, and bring the gravy to a simmer, cook until thick, 6 – 7 minutes. Season with kosher salt and pepper.
  13. Spoon the gravy over the steaks to serve.
