I watched Food 911 a few days back and saw Tyler Florence create Chicken Fried Steak. I watched him dish up with garlic mashed pototoes and greens cooked with hamhock, and fluffy buttermilk biscuits, I knew I would have to try it.
so I found the recipe on the internet, and picked up the ingredients I needed and last night I made it.

I pounded the steak and marinaded it in seasoned buttermilk, just like he did, fried the one inch pieces of bacon to use for garnish, then went through the messy job of dredging the steak in flour, egg and then flour again before it hit the pan. I followed the recipe carefully but did not use the hot sauce because it hurts my tummy.
I did like Tyler said and cooked it on low heat, seven minutes per side. When I turned it and saw the beautiful golden brown, I was impressed.

I had made Kale greens with bacon and mashed potatoes, but skipped the biscuits. I made the gravy, with buttermilk, just like Tyler did and when I dished up and drizzled the gravy over the steak it looked very professional. I even garnished it with the bacon and parsley, just like he did.

By the time I was done, I was very ready to eat. It smelled ok and looked like a gourmet meal. I had to take a picture of my plate because I planned to share the recipe on my blog.

Well, I won't post the recipe. It was perfectly awful.
My tummy does flip-flops when I think about it.
Maybe it was the spices, or the egg .....or maybe I just don't like chicken fried steak.

DO you have a recipe for it that you like? Posted by Picasa
