Country Fried Steak with Cream Gravy

One of my favorite comfort food dishes is Country Fried Steak. Bacons Heir sent over some Pork Clouds and Chef decided to make Country Fried Steak with it. The Pork Clouds are crushed and used in place of flour in the “breading” process. Again, it is a very simple recipe with real, whole food ingredients. Using the Pork Clouds as the breading makes for a nice crispy crunchy Country Fried Steak. Definitely give this a try.

  1. 1 lb beef steak, either cube steak, top round, or any cut will work, if you pound it out thin with a mallet
  2. Salt and pepper to season meat
  3. 2 eggs, whisked
  4. 1 bag Pork Clouds
  5. 2 cups coconut milk
  6. 2 T. arrowroot, mixed with 2 T. water
  7. 1 T. fresh sage or thyme, finely chopped
  8. 1 t. black pepper
  9. ½ t. sea salt
  10. ½ cup olive oil (not extra virgin), avocado oil, or lard for frying
  1. Put the garlic-thyme pork clouds into the processor and pulse until crumbs are formed.
  2. Put the crumbs onto a plate.
  3. In a saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a simmer
  4. Add the chopped sage, thyme, pepper, salt and then the arrowroot.
  5. Whisk the arrowroot in briskly to completely disperse it and thicken the gravy.
  6. Taste for seasoning and make adjustments if necessary.
  7. After pounding out the beef very thin, season it on both sides with salt and pepper, dip into the egg mixture and then, lay it into the crumbs and press them into both sides of the meat.
  8. Heat your cooking fat in a large skillet over medium heat, and carefully lay the cutlets into the fat to fry after 2-3 minutes, turn once to cook the other side.
  9. Both sides should be golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  10. Serve the country fried steaks with pepper cream gravy over the top.
  11. Mashed sweet potatoes would be a great accompaniment to this.
