Ribeye Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy.

The Best Chicken Fried Steak

A few years ago I ordered a Chicken Fried Steak from a restaurant in Gillette Wyoming that was, absolutely, out of this world. I went and re-ordered that dish several times, before I packed it in and left town, and I hadn’t had one that good since. That is until I stopped in to a little mom and pop’s diner hear in town and decided to take a stab at their version. Wow! It was delicious and it’s weighed down on my mind so heavy that I decided I better show the world how to do it your self and guarantee amazing results.

Chicken Fried Steak Cut

As you may or may not know, there isn’t just one way to make Chicken Fried Steak. There are several different ways to do it. Among the most common is your basic Cube Steak or, the poor man’s version, with hamburger. In this recipe, however, I’m going to suggest using fat trimmed Ribeye steaks cut about 3/8 of inch thick. Starting out with the right cut helps to insure tenderness with a rich flavor. Then tenderizing and seasoning takes it to the next level.

Seasoning a Ribeye Chicken Fried Steak

Now that we’ve learned using a Ribeye is one of the secrets to making a great Chicken Fried Steak, now we need to talk about the seasoning. In my opinion, anything beef related needs a good rub with something salty, spicy and very flavorful. Blackened seasoning has got it all but it isn’t always available in standard grocery stores. I have to make my own and I’m going to show you how to do it in the next post. So, you’re not going to want to miss that. Blackened seasoning is amazing on steaks, ribs, chicken and seafood. It’s one of those all around seasonings that’s good on just about everything and it’s especially good in this recipe. Now all you’ll need is some flour, a simple egg wash and some country gravy.

Ribeye Chicken Fried Steak Ingredients:

2 Ribeye Steaks, 3/8 to 1/2 inch thick
1 tsp Blackened Seasoing
1 cup Flour
3 eggs

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
