First of all, I didn’t grow up calling this fried steak ‘chicken fried steak’.
However, Wesley insists that’s the correct term.
If you are uninformed, as I was, ‘chicken fried’ is the process of
coating the steak in the buttermilk (or milk) and flour then frying
thus giving it a fried chicken type exterior.
We usually make the steak and have it with biscuits and gravy.
But, I had bought a loaf of Texas toast and thought it would be a great twist
to do it Patty Melt style.
Salt and pepper the steak.
Add 1 c self-rising flour to a platter and milk or buttermilk to another platter.
Set flour and milk dishes up assembly line style and heat 1/4 c oil in a skillet.
Dip steak in milk then flour, coating both sides
(Notice Big Daddy’s hand making its’ debut)
Heat oil on med hi (about 350 degrees), add steak
Cook steak about 2 minutes on both sides until golden
Remove from pan and drawn on wire rack
For Patty Melt, butter one side of 2 pieces of Texas toast
add steak, cheese, and sauteed onions
Grill both sides of sandwich
