Folks, I haven't tried this particular recipe, but repeatedly see that people have trouble with the breading falling off. I did too until I read that your heat is too high. You need to cook it lower and slower!


I made a composite of this recipe. Instead of putting the majority of the seasonings in the gravy, I put them all in the flour mix. Doing that and following the steps of dredging in flour, egg, then flour again, this made the most fantastic chicken fried steak I have ever had! My fiance loved this, as well, claiming it was also the best he'd ever had. It was definitely awesome!


As several other reviewers have suggested, seriously consider reducing the chili powder by at least half. The chili powder overwhelms the gravy taste. I had to add more milk to reduce the intensity of the chili powder, though once tempered, the flavor of the gravy rocks. I had to add several eggs to the egg mixture. There wasn't enough egg batter for the meat. Too, consider leaving the flour out of the egg. Yes, it might make the coating thicker, but it is VERY hard to work with and doesn't stick easily to the meat. My mother always dipped the meat in egg alone and I think that works best. I bought tenderized round steak on sale, which also is what mom used. All in all--an excellent recipe, with with the modifications just mentioned.
