Chicken Fried Steak Strips

I took this original post from Heavenly Homemakers and made it my own.  Yes it is on a kids plate:)
We are big fans of chicken fried steak and after many attempts this was the winner!

2 large Cube Steaks cut into strips
2 cups Flour (you can use whole wheat or white, I used white)
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp seasoned salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
2  pepper
Oil (I used Vegetable)

 Heat about 2 inches of oil in a pan with high sides on medium. Mix the flour with the garlic powder, seasoned salt, paprika, salt and pepper and put in a pan for dipping.  In a second pan or plate put the milk in it.  I let the steak soak in the milk for awhile, then dip it into the flour. You can dip it back and forth a couple times or just one depending on how you like your breading. You will know when the oil is ready if you splash some water at it and it sizzles. Put the steak into the pan and cook about 7-10 minutes on each side until they are crispy.  You will not be disappointed and feel free to add different spices to your flour.  When it was done I made the gravy in the same pan and used all the delicious leftover pieces.

White Gravy

1 1/2 cups of Oil
3 Tbsp Flour
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in the skillet where you made the chicken fried steak, when it is warm whisk in the flour and keep whisking until it becomes thick and brown. Just remember this takes some patience, it will not thicken and brown right away. You can add a small amount of flour if needed. Slowly add milk until it is the consistency you want, some people like it thick and some like it thin. When it gets to the consistency you want add salt and pepper until it tastes just right.  Put it over your chicken fried steak strips and enjoy!
