It sounds odd doesn’t it? While I was away I read a blog from one of my favourite Bloggers, viz., Karen from Back Road Journal fame. Karen recently posted about one of her childhood favourites, i.e., A Taste Of Texas, Chicken Fried Steak With Cream Gravy.
I thought I’d at least give the steak a go. I can do her vegetables another time.
I agree with Karen, tenderising with buttermilk is always a good thing.
I took Karen’s advice and applied the egg wash and flour process twice.
I used enough sunflower oil in my wok to ensure the coated meat sat about halfway in the shimmering oil. I didn’t make the cream sauce like Karen did, rather than waste the buttermilk, I used it instead of plain milk. It tasted okay. Next time I’d do it as Karen did.
For those that know me, I like cabbage so I steamed some and also fried some sweet potato discs.
The finished product tasted pretty good. The crusty flour coating was nice and spicy and the meat was very tender.
