Chicken Fried Steak

My hubby loves chicken fried steak and this is one of his favorites. When I just got here in the US, my hubby and I went to a restaurant. He ordered chicken fried steak. I thought it's a chicken meat and I asked him if I can taste it. Then he told me that chicken fried steak are actually breaded and deep fried beef cutlets but they are cooked the same method in cooking fried chicken. Then later on I learned how to cook it because my hubby love it. I like it too but hubby like it more.

INGREDIENTS

* 1 pound boneless beef top loin
* 2 cups shortening
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1 cup buttermilk
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
*
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 quart milk
* salt and pepper to tas

DIRECTIONS

1. Cut top loin crosswise into 4 (4 ounce) cutlets. Using a glancing motion, pound each cutlet thinly with a moistened mallet or the side of a cleaver.
2. In a large, heavy skillet, heat 1/2 inch shortening to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
3. While the shortening is heating, prepare cutlets. In a shallow bowl, beat together egg, buttermilk, salt and pepper. In another shallow dish, mix together garlic powder and 1cup flour. Dip cutlets in flour, turning to evenly coat both sides. Dip in egg mixture, coating both sides, then in flour mixture once again.
4. Place cutlets in heated shortening. Cook until golden brown, turning once. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining cutlets. Drain grease, reserving 1/2 cup.
5. Using the reserved drippings in the pan, prepare gravy over medium heat. Blend in 1/4 cup flour to form a paste. Gradually add milk to desired consistency, stirring constantly. For a thicker gravy add less milk; for a thinner gravy stir in more. Heat through, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over chicken fried steak.
