The Pioneer Woman Chicken Fried Steak Recipe is so good, but so bad at the same time. This is not a healthy dish by any means, but it does taste out of this world. It takes me back to my Granny’s cooking. This recipe is easy, but I will warn you that it is messy to prepare. If the whole family pitches in afterward it won’t be that bad.

I know some people who like to eat their Chicken Fried Steak like a sandwich, but I prefer to serve with gravy and Mashed Potatoes. Be sure to try this Pioneer Woman recipe soon because you will not be disappointed! This is true southern comfort food! You can easily make this gluten free when you use a gluten free flour.

Total Time:40 mins


  • 3 pounds Cube Steak tenderized Round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized
  • 1 1/2 cup Whole Milk Plus Up To 2 Cups For Gravy
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • Seasoned Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons Cayenne
  • Black Pepper
  • 2 TBSP Canola Oil For Frying
  • Salt And Pepper For Both Meat And Gravy


  • Begin with an assembly line of dishes for the meat: milk mixed with egg in one; flour mixed with spices in one; meat in one; then have one clean plate at the end to receive the breaded meat.

  • Work one piece of meat at a time.

  • Season both sides with salt and pepper, then dip in the milk/egg mixture.

  • Next, place the meat on the plate of seasoned flour.

  • Turn to coat thoroughly.

  • Place the meat back into the milk/egg mixture, turning to coat.

  • Place back in the flour and turn to coat.

  • Place breaded meat on the clean plate, then repeat with remaining meat.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  • Drop in a few sprinkles of flour to make sure it’s sufficiently hot.

  • Cook meat, three pieces at a time, until edges start to look golden brown; around 2 to 2 1/2 minutes each side.

  • Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and keep warm.

  • Repeat until all meat is cooked.


  • After all meat is fried, pour off the grease into a heatproof bowl.

  • Without cleaning the pan, return it to the stove over medium-low heat.

  • Add 1/4 cup grease back to the pan.

  • Allow grease to heat up.

  • Sprinkle 1/3 cup flour evenly over the grease.

  • Using a whisk, mix flour with grease, creating a golden-brown paste.

  • Keep cooking until it reaches a deep golden brown color.

  • If paste seems more oily than pasty, sprinkle in another tablespoon of flour and whisk.

  • Whisking constantly, pour in milk.

  • Cook to thicken the gravy.

  • Be prepared to add more milk if it becomes overly thick.

  • Add salt and pepper and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until gravy is smooth and thick.

  • Be sure to taste to make sure gravy is sufficiently seasoned.

  • Serve meat next to a big side of mashed potatoes.

  • Pour gravy over everything!
