This was a staple meal at Jim's parents' house. And his mom was the best cook in town! Here is her famous recipe for chicken fried steak and cream gravy. Enjoy!

2 t. salt
2 t. pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
2 T. pan drippings
2 T. flour

Salt and pepper to taste


Cut steak into pieces.

Mix flour, salt and pepper in wide shallow bowl.

Mix eggs and milk in another wide shallow bowl.

Coat each piece of meat in flour mixture, then egg-milk mixture, then flour mixture again.

Let meat set until one inch of oil is hot in skillet and ready for frying.

Turn until golden brown.

Put meat on paper towels to drain.

Pour off all but a couple of tablespoons of drippings.

Add flour to drippings stirring until it becomes dark.
