Homestyle Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken Fried Steak
4 servings

1 1/4 cups flour, divided
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon each salt, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder and pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 2/3 cups buttermilk, divided
4 beef cube steaks (1 pound)
oil for frying
1 1/2 cups milk

In a shallow bowl, combine 1 cup flour, baking powder and seasonings. In another shallow bowl, combine egg and 1 cup buttermilk. Dip each cube steak in buttermilk mixture, then coat in flour mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch of oil on medium-high. Fry steaks for 5 to 7 minutes. Turn carefully; cook 5 minutes longer or until coating is crisp and meat is no longer pink. Remove steaks and keep warm. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup drippings; stir remaining flour into drippings until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk and remaining buttermilk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over steaks and enjoy!
