Can you really keep your abs and eat chicken-fried steak? You can if you make it like this! Here we use a healthier oil for pan frying and remove the wheat in the coating.
2-4 cube steaks (or use a meat tenderizing mallet on your favorite cut of beef)
1/2 to 1 cup almond flour, rice flour, or a mixture. Choose whichever fits your dietary goals and preferences. Both work great.
1-2 whole eggs or 3-4 egg whites
Coconut oil for pan frying
Seasonings of choice: garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, paprika, salt and pepper, to taste
If using a cut of beef besides cube steak, tenderize with a kitchen mallet or related device.
Set up your dredging station. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk. Pour almond or rice flour onto a separate plate. Add seasonings to flour and combine.
Dip each cube steak into the egg, then into the flour/seasoning mixture. Set aside.
Add a spoonful of coconut oil to a large, hot pan.
Place each dredged cubed steak into the pan. Do not overcrowd.
When they get golden brown on one side, flip. When poked with a fork, juices should be clear.
Remove from pan and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil, then serve.
For a different flavor, simply make a mixture of your favorite herbs and spices.
