Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Trim fat from the steak. Cut steak into four serving-size pieces. To tenderize the steak pieces, place each piece between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound meat lightly until about 1/4 inch thick. Remove and discard plastic wrap.
  2. Combine egg and the 1 tablespoon milk in a shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs, salt, and pepper in another shallow bowl. Dip steak pieces into egg mixture, turning to coat all sides evenly. Then dip into bread crumb mixture, turning to coat all sides evenly. Gently shake off any excess bread crumbs.
  3. [Cleaning tip: Wipe off any meat residue or egg spills on the countertop with Clorox(R) Disinfecting Wipes*. Rinse hands once complete.]
  4. Heat oil over medium heat in a very large skillet. Add half of the steak pieces to the skillet and cook for 6 minutes or until brown on both sides, turning once. Remove steaks from skillet and place on a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining steak pieces, adding more oil if necessary. Return all of the steaks to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 45 to 60 minutes or until steaks are tender. Transfer steaks to a serving platter and cover to keep warm. Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet; discard remaining drippings, or add additional oil if needed.
  5. For Cream Gravy: Heat reserved drippings in skillet. Whisk in flour. Gradually stir in the 1 cup milk, half-and-half, and thyme. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute more. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve gravy over Chicken Fried Steak.
  6. [Cleaning tip: Once the stove top is cool, wipe up any oil splatters or spills with Clorox(R) Disinfecting Wipes*.]

Simple, easy, but just O.K. flavor. Needs something like chicken stock to add flavor.


this worked really well! really easy and not too much food.


It was so good that my husband, the picky eater, requested to have it two nights in a row. He never wants the same thing back-to-back.
