I adapted this recipe from the Pioneer Woman. It was recommended by my mother and when I tried it using cubed Pork instead of beef, it was just as delicious. I recommend checking out the link and looking at her photos as she prepares it. They are beautiful!
- 3 pounds of Cubed Steak ( I used cubed Pork instead of Beef. I pounded it between two pieces of plastic wrap. Don't over do it, or the meat will fall apart when you dredge it.)
- 1-1/2 cups of rice milk (or other non dairy milk)
- 3 Tbsp Ener G Foods - Egg Replacer (the powder)
- 1 cup Cybele Pascal's Gluten Free Flour Blend
- 1 cup sweet rice flour
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 1 Tbsp seasoned salt
- 2 Tbsp black pepper ( you can use a tablespoon more if you like it spicier)
- Oil for frying ( I used Olive Oil)
- Salt and Pepper for Meat
- In a large bowl combine Cybele's flour, sweet rice flour, brown rice flour, seasoned salt, and pepper.
- In another shallow bowl, whisk together rice milk and Ener-G Egg replacer powder.
- Have another large plate available to place the prepared breaded meat.
- Season your meat with a little salt and pepper.
- One piece at a time, DIP meat into milk mixture, DREDGE meat in flour mixture, DIP into milk mixture, DREDGE in flour mixture, PLACE on plate. *Make sure you coat each side thoroughly. In essence you are going to be double coating the meat, so it is---wet-dry-wet-dry-plate it.
- Repeat step 5 with the remaining meat.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Make sure the oil is HOT before frying the meat.
- Cook meat, a few pieces at a time, until it is golden brown. Around 3-5 minutes per side (depending on the thickness of your meat).
- Place on a paper towel lined plate. Keep warm until ready to serve.
- Serve with your favorite gravy.
- Superb on a bagel with a scrambled egg. Delicious!
- Chicken Fried Steak is usually served with a white or sawmill gravy. I prepared a gravy by making a roux and adding milk, and seasoning with salt and pepper. However, I was not pleased with the taste of it. I think a better base for the gravy would have been to use ground cashews, adding hemp or rice milk and seasonings.
- Adjust seasoned salt and pepper to your liking in the flour mixture. The Pioneer Woman leaves it up to you. The amounts shown above are what I used.
