Chicken Fried Elk Steak

Updated: Mar 28, 2021

Every once in awhile I crave good old fashion Southern food. This classic dish reminds me of my time spent in Texas and my family that remains there. It can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Pair it with eggs, biscuits, mashed potatoes or your favorite veggie sides just don't forget the country gravy! Not feeling steak? I use this same recipe on my Mama's fried chicken (note if you are frying chicken bone in you need to triple the fry time). Enjoy!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4-6


4 medium steaks, trimmed and tenderized

1 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp black pepper

1 Tbsp alpine touch (or favorite seasoning salt)

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup whole milk heavy cream (milk is OK)

2 tsp Cholula hot sauce (optional or use your favorite)

2 eggs

Approximately 1-2 cups vegetable oil


-Combine flour, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp alpine touch, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and baking powder

-In a separate bowl combine milk, milk, hot sauce and eggs

-Pat dry steaks, sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper on both sides

-In a large skillet heat oil to 350 degrees (we are surface frying not deep frying so there should be just enough oil to generously coat the bottom of the steaks)

-Dredge steaks in flour mixture, then egg mixture, then back in flour mixture (be sure to fully coat)

-Place steaks in pan, fry 3-5 minutes (or until golden brown) flip and repeat on opposite side

-Place on paper towel lined sheet pan to absorb extra oil

-Serve hot with country gravy and your favorite sides
