Ever since I tried a delicious Chicken Fried Steak (CFS) at 24th Street Cafe in Bakersfield, CA… I’m hooked on CFS! In the past, I tried it here and there, but I thought… it was nothing special. Now, after trying several places for their CFS an to find my 24th Street Cafe‘s CFS replacement, I decided to make my own. Yeah, I haven’t found the replacement yet, but in my kitchen!
I just made and perfected this last night. I’m proud to say that I’ve finally created a tasty and flavorful batter, and my homemade hashbrown was crispy good! You can click on the link to find the recipe for the hashbrown.
2 pieces of meat
1 cup of flour
Again, I only eyeballed the ingredients.
You can choose thin cut sirloin as a short cut or you can pound a regular steak with tenderizer into the desired thickness. Rub to marinade the meat with garlic salt, paprika, salt and pepper. Set aside in a bowl. Pour the buttermilk on the meat just enough to cover it. Leave the meat marinating for at least for 2 hours.
Prepare the flour, and mix it well with a dash of paprika, a dash of garlic salt, and pepper to your taste. When you are done, heat the oil on medium. Put the meat on the flour, push to cover front and back. Put the meat gently in the heated oil. Leave it to cook for 3-4 minutes until the batter on the bottom is set (appears golden brown or fried), then turn and repeat the process. After that, you are all set to enjoy!
Don’t forget to pour the chicken gravy on top!
Ps. I would also make fried chicken with this recipe.
