Country Fried Steak & Gravy

Post by Wingman » Mon Aug 11, 2014 3:27 pm

Hi mates! I have been told that you guys don't see much in the way of country fried steak in Australia. SO I thought I would share this. Today it was a nice sunny day across the pond and a great time to fire up the Scottsdale. I finally got around to doing a country fried steak recipe. I'm not sure why I have not done one until now as I eat them all the time when we go out for dinner.

The flour was a mix of all purpose flour and Johnny's seasoning. The batter was a buttermilk base with pepper, salt, garlic, baking powder, baking soda, egg and hot sauce. I got to thinking which is sometimes a bad thing... So I thought why not rub them cubed steaks down with some Mad Hunky HAW. So I did and I'm glad I did because it worked out great in the end. I coated both side of each steak with the flower mix then into the batter and back into the flour.

I fired up the Scottsdale with lump and melted down 3 cups of vegetable shortening in my 15" Lodge cast iron skillet. Once the oil reached 325 degrees F in went the steaks. Four minutes per side for each steak (two at a time)and then into a dish with some paper to soak up excess oil.

Next I drained all but 1/4 cup of oil from the skillet making sure to leave any small bits of coating or meat for the gravy. Then I mixed in some flour, salt, pepper and milk. I brought this to a simmer and let it thicken then removed it from the heat. The rest is below... I was pleasantly surprised ant the flavors. The gravy was thick (I hate runny gravy) and the coating on the steaks was nice and crispy the way it should be in my opinion. Anyway info pics and video are below. This was very easy to cook and man was it delicious! If any of you try this recipe please let me know what you think of it. Thanks mates!

Big ass snitzle. Quite often done here but bashed tender with a meat mallet. Also do cubes of steak like this for sweet and sour.
It sure does make plain steak tasty. Another great vid and how to Rob

And cheers to you friend, Something wrong with people that don't like your tucker :lol: Regardless of what that pesky doctor says :mrgreen:
to be honest I Really love the stuff you come up with. The way you do it, I would love to emulate so I'm watching and learning.
I just love outside the box recipes and old tradition ones as well.
