Chicken fried steak is a beloved Southern favorite, often considered the epitome of comfort food. This classic steak recipe is perfect for cooking tougher cuts of elk steak. Coated in a crispy, seasoned breading and smothered in creamy gravy, this is a dish the whole family will enjoy!
Coat the steak in the flour mixture a second time. Press the flour mixture into the steak and shake off the excess. Place battered steaks onto a wire rack on a baking sheet to let the excess flour fall off. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for 30 minutes to let the batter adhere to the steak.
Fry one steak at a time. Use tongs to gently lower the steak into the hot oil to avoid splashing. Cook for 2 minutes. Flip the steak and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the outside is golden brown and crispy.
