Kim Smith’s Country Fried Steak

Country fried steak is my best friend. As a writer, I am always looking for quick, nutritious, and tasty stuff to cook, so I can get on with the business of putting words to paper. So, it just doesn’t get any better than this, yall! *Yes, I am channeling Paula Deen here, because well, she’s a Southern gal, too! Serve these steaks with some form of potato, like mashed with gravy, yum yum, and a bagged salad and you are set for the night. Oh, and fresh from the garden, home-grown tomatoes would be right as rain, too!


1 lb. Round steak, or sirloin tip steak
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup milk
1 large egg
oil for frying


3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
½ cup chicken broth
salt and pepper

Cut meat up into about four pieces and use meat pulverizer on each. Pound until about a fourth of an inch thick. Heat oil in skillet. In a bowl, beat egg into milk. In separate bowl, place ½ cup of flour with paprika, pepper, and about ½ teaspoon of salt. Dip meat into egg mix, then flour mix, then place in hot oil. Brown on both sides for about 2-3 minutes then lower heat to medium, cover the skillet, and let steak fry like chicken for about 10-12 minutes. Remove cover and let steak crisp for 2 mins. Remove from skillet.

Leave the crispies in the skillet and about 2 tablespoons of oil. Place the 3 tablespoons of flour in the skillet and cook, stirring until all the flour is brown. Slowly add the milk and broth and cook for a few minutes until bubbly and thick.

Okay, now I have to go eat. I am starving just thinking about this! I hope you enjoy it!

Sounds yummy. We see this on the menu in many places when we travel down south. We won't be making it quite as far as TN, but we'll be in NC for the first two weeks of August.

Best of luck with your book, Kim.
