Chicken Fried Steak

Here's a down-home recipe for all your hearty eaters. Comfort food deluxe! 

2 pounds round steak
2 cups crushed saltine crackers
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk

Gravy:
1/4 cup flour
3-4 cups milk

Pound steaks to tenderize. In shallow bowl, stir together crushed saltine crackers, flour, seasoned salt, and pepper. In another shallow bowl mix together eggs and buttermilk.  Dredge each steak first in  cracker mixture, then in egg batter, and again in cracker mixture. Pat cracker mixture onto the surface of each steak until completely coated. 

Heat 1/4 cup canola oil in large skillet. Fry steaks until golden brown, approximately 3-5 minutes on each side. When done, keep warm on paper towels. To make gravy, scrape the bottom of the skillet with a spatula to release crumbs for gravy. On medium heat, stir in flour to make paste. Add milk and continue to cook until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon gravy over steaks to serve. Enjoy!
