Yesterday was one of those days. I had skipped lunch and was running around giving farm tours. I knew I had cubed steaks defrosting in the fridge and I thought. Why not go all out? As a big fan of fried chicken, crispy deep fried deliciousness is something I can not get that often now that I am gluten-free. And yes, I do miss it. I have to indulge every once in a while and cook something deep fried myself and this steak recipes certainly hit the spot! The crust was so crispy, peppery and the milk gravy perfect over the new potatoes and green beans. Did not hurt that this down home meal was all grown on the farm, with the exception of the gluten free flour!
Gluten-free chicken fried steak
- 4 cubed steaks, or four slices of top round, tenderized
- 1 cup of gluten free flour, more if needed of gluten free flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper(fresh)
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 cup oil(this is a lot of oil you can use less if you do not want to waste I used olive oil/canola oil mix)
equipment: cast iron skillet
- For gravy:
- 2 tablespoons oil from frying
- 3 tablespoon gluten free flour(you can use the extra from dipping if you have some extra)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Our processor “cubes” the steaks for us, so they are already tenderized. You can do this your self with a top round roast as well. Season steaks with salt and freshly cracked pepper. This dish is all about the pepper!
- On a plate add a cup of gluten free flour and season with paprika, salt and pepper.
- In another shallow bowl add egg and milk. Whisk.
- Take the steak and dredge in flour mixture then egg wash. Dredge again in flour mixture, then again in eggwash and then one last time in flour mixture.
- Heat oil in a cast iron skillet on a medium high heat, fry steak for about 3 minutes on each side. Put on a warmed plate with paper towels.
- Meanwhile, to make the gravy you will need 2 tablespoons of the oil you fried the steak in. Add the flour and whisk, add chicken broth, bring to a boil and whisk briskly then add milk. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
- I served these with boiled fingerling potatoes and fried green beans. Everything was grown on our farm except for the gluten free flour!
