Classic Chicken Fried Cubed Steak
Classic Chicken Fried Cubed Steak is the ultimate comfort food. It is tender, juicy, and has a thick, crunchy coating. True southern cooking!
Cubed steaks dredged in seasoned flour and then fried to a golden brown. If you are looking for something healthy—well—this probably isn’t the recipe for you. BUT, if you are looking for a delicious tasting dinner idea—then you need to make this tonight.
The ingredients are simple with just a few steps to follow. This is a plan ahead meal. It’s easy to make but requires at least an hour or 2 for the cube steak to marinate.
This is my favorite recipe for frying cubed steak. I like to double bread the meat to give it a nice coating and then fry to a golden brown. To me —the coating makes this steak great!
Every year I ask my family what they want for their birthday meal. My son and daughter usually ask for different foods for each birthday, but my husband always asks for the same menu. Every year he wants cubed steak, creamed potatoes, English peas, biscuits, and gravy. Every year! Now, I don’t even ask him what he wants, for the whole family already knows the answer. 🙂
I have been using this recipe for years, and it always works great for me. The steak is always tender, juicy, and the coating is crispy and well seasoned. Like I mentioned earlier, I like to double bread/batter my steak for it makes a thicker and crunchier crust.
How to make Classic Chicken Fried Cubed Steak
Combine buttermilk, eggs, and hot sauce in a bowl and mix well. Add the cubed steak making sure it’s completely submerged in the buttermilk. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
In a bowl or large container, mix together flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne. **If you like it spicier, add more seasonings. You may also need more flour so adjust as needed.
Take the cubed steaks out of the refrigerator. Dip steaks one at a time in flour mixture, coating both sides, then back again in marinade mixture and again in flour mixture.
Place on a baking sheet in a single layer, and put back into the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Heat oil and fry over medium heat until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
