Chicken fried steak
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt or to tasteFreshly ground black pepper
1 large egg
2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup buttermilk baking mix (such as Bisquick)
2 pounds bottom or top round steak (cut into four individual portions), pounded well to tenderize
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Milk Gravy (recipe follows)

In a shallow pan or plate, sift together flour, salt, and pepper. In another shallow pan, combine egg and water. In still another shallow pan, place baking mix. Coat steaks in flour mixture, dip in egg mixture, and then coat with baking mix.

Preheat oven to 150 degrees F. In a large frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron skillet) over medium-high heat, add vegetable oil and heat until a drop of water sizzles. Add coated steak pieces, in batches, and fry 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked (add additional vegetable oil if needed). Remove from pan and keep cooked steaks warm in preheated oven. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the cooking oil. Put the frying pan back over the heat and make the Milk Gravy.

Milk Gravy:
2 tablespoons pan drippings1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 cups milk, heavy cream, or evaporated milk, room temperature
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In the same frying pan with 2 tablespoons pan drippings, over medium heat, sprinkle flour over the oil and blend with a wooden spoon or whisk until smooth. Whisking or stirring constantly, slowly pour in milk, cream or evaporated milk; continue stirring, scraping loose browned bits from the bottom and sides of skillet, until the gravy begins to boil and thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 to 8 minutes or until gravy is thickened to the desired consistency and the flour has lost its raw, pasty taste. Remove from pan and serve hot with the Chicken-Fried Steak.

Thanks for posting the chickadee pictures Ginger. I remember using Letraset all the time back in the 70s and 80s, and I loved it. But I sure never thought to do anything like this with it!

How clever to create such beautiful pictures from letters. Another interesting post, my friend, with all the other goodies you have chosen for us.
There is also a little something for you over on Ed's Place - think it's different to your others :-)
