Another Monday rolls around, another Okie recipe rolls around....
Okie Chicken Fried Steak
2 lb. round steak
2 T. water
1 1/2 c. saltine cracker crumbs
Cut steak into serving-sized pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tenderize it by pounding with a tenderizer. Dip meat into egg that has been beaten and mixed with the water.
Dip into cracker crumbs and shake off the excess crumbs.
Heat about 1/2 inch oil in fry pan or electric skillet.
Fry meat until brown on both sides; keep skillet covered except when turning the meat. Meat should be tender when pierced with a knife, it usually takes about 25 to 35 minutes to cook.
Of course, you HAVE to serve this with mashed potatoes and cream gravy.
Chicken fried steak is the centerpiece of Oklahoma's official meal. (Yes, we actually have an official meal.)
