Country Fried Steak

I learned how to make this Country Fried Steak when I was 18 years old. I was working for an alarm company with several older women. We were locked into a building and monitoring alarm systems. We had a kitchen so every once in awhile one of the ladies would bring in all the fixings for a home cooked meal. This one lady could do some good down home cooking and she taught me how to make country fried steak. After I was married and had children I would make this and it became my daughter’s favorite dish. So on Halloween she stayed for dinner with the kids and I made it with the kids help of course 🙂

You’ll need:

6 cube steaks

8 Tablespoons butter

2 cups and 8 Tablespoons flour

4 cups milk

salt to taste

pepper to taste

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet


In a shallow bowl mix 2 cups flour with salt and pepper. Katie had her Rapunzel costume on ready for beggars night.

Spider man aka Tyler was also helping out tonight.

Coat both sides of the meat with the flour.

Carefully place the floured meat into the fry pan with the melted butter.


Brown them over medium heat. Cook about 10 – 12  minutes.

Turn them over and brown the over side. Cook another 10 minutes. Adding more butter if needed.

After all the meat is cooked place on a platter. Add 4 Tablespoons of butter to the frying pan.

Slowly mix in the 8 tablespoons of flour with a fork. Bring to a bubbly boil stirring constantly.

Slowly add your 4 cups of milk.

Bring to a boil.

Put your meat into the gravy and heat it through.

I usually serve this with mashed potatoes and corn. It is so good 🙂

    Country fried steak is one of my all-time favorite meals. I don’t make it often enough, and I’m not sure why as your recipe proves it’s not difficult. I’m pretty hungry now. Thank you. (And sure wishing I had the makings for this instead of the chicken something-or-another we’ll be having for dinner.)

    Oh NO I’d never eat this. I only eat vegetables and really healthy foods….NOT! 🙂 Love it!

    One of my favorite dinners. Of course, it probably tastes better when rapunzel and Spider Man are the cooks — so cute! Thanks so much for linking on Busy Monday!

    Oh my goodness that looks so good! I worked in a truck stop in my teens and they served this. I started making it at home too it was so good. I haven’t made it in years due to my food allergies but my husband loves it. I’ll have to remember to pull this one out on days I want to make him feel special. Thanks for linking with me 🙂

    Yes, this is COUNTRY fried steak. A search on “country fried steak” makes it clear that most of the world considers the term synonymous with “CHICKEN fried steak,” but I consider them to be two different foods. Your recipe does not involve egg batter or a flour-egg-breading process that results in a thick, crispy coating. There’s nothing wrong with chicken fried steak; I sometimes order it in restaurants and enjoy it. But at home I make country fried steak with essentially your recipe. It is not only easier to make, but it’s leaner, healthier, and, in my opinion, tastier. Your workmate at the alarm company taught you well. My extended family (24 in all) has this at my house every Christmas eve, and it’s always a hit.
