Why I love this Recipe!

Comfort food at its finest with classic country fried steak. It's inexpensive and quick to make for a weeknight hearty dinner.

– ¼ cup vegetable or canola oil – 2 lbs. cubed round steak – 2 cups flour, plus more if needed – 2 teaspoons Tony's seasoning – 2 cups buttermilk, plus more if needed – 1 egg – ½ tablespoon hot sauce – ½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce – Salt and pepper

Ingredients You'll Need:

Step 1. Make yourself an assembly line with a baking sheet, two pie plates, a large cast-iron skillet, vegetable oil, and a paper-towel lined plate.

Step 2. Place about two cups of flour in a pie plate and add some Tony's seasoning or just salt and pepper. In another pie plate, stir an egg and half a tablespoon of hot sauce into about two cups of buttermilk. Lay the cube steaks on the baking pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper and a little Worcestershire sauce.

Step 3. Dip the steaks in flour, then buttermilk, then again in the flour. Place the steaks back on the baking pan. You can also double this and start by dipping the steaks in the buttermilk, then flour, then milk again, then flour again. That's a little much for me, but whatever floats your boat.

Step 4. Carefully lay each piece of steak in the hot oil in the skillet. Fry until each side is deep, golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove steak to a paper-towel lined plate and serve immediately.
