They take a little prep, but is so worth it.

Country fried steaks:

Country fried steaks are a favorite in my home, & the kids are always happy to help with the prep & making of the steaks & the gravy.

What you need:

  • 10 thin cut steaks pork or chicken
  • Einkorn flour (or flour of choice)
  • Optional: Cornmeal
  • Optional: Bread crumbs
  • Course black pepper
  • Parsley flakes
  • Milk of choice (or milk kefir)
  • Egg
  • Raw apple cider vinegar (or Kombucha vinegar)
  • Palm shortening, raw coconut oil or another healthy oil to fry with.


Buy or cut thinner steaks from beef, pork, chicken etc, take the meat & use a mallet to thin meat out more.

Flour coating on a plate (step #1). 

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp. course black pepper
  • Mix together (remake more as needed during process)

Milk bath in a bowl: (step #2)

  • 1 & 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. Apple cider vinegar
  • Mix together making sure the egg is mixed in well. (remake more as needed during process)

  • 2 cups of flour
  • Optional: 1/2 cup of cornmeal
  • Optional 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp. of parsley flakes
  • Mix (remake more as needed during process)

Get oil ready: Heat an inch or so of shortening or oil in a pan, depending on your stove use med to med high. You just want the steak the sizzle when dropped in.Palm shortening 1

Directions of coating:

  1. Now add 1 piece of meat at a time first to step 1 flour coating, and just lightly coat each side
  2. From there dunk in milk mixture step 2 making sure to do this step fast but getting both sides wet.
  3. Next now add meat to step 3 flour coating & press both sides into mixture making sure to cover well.
  4. Do 3 or 4 or how many will fit in your pan in a single layer.
  5. Now add the coated pieces of meat to your hot shortening or oil.
  6. Make sure your oil is not to hot or it will burn or cook outer batter to fast leaving the inside raw.
  7. After they are in oil about 30 second move them just enough to prevent sticking to bottom.
  8. You want the first side golden brown in about 5 minutes.
  9. Then flip & cook another few to 5 minutes, flipping a couple times as needed
  10. They should start floating when done.
  11. Remove & drain excess oil.

Serve with gravy.


We are all about making homemade gravies with dinner & breakfasts, so I guess you could say we are picky about our gravies, we like them tasty, creamy, healthy, not greasy or oily, not clumpy, they need to compliment what they are served with & be healthy to.Palm Shortening 5

What you need:

  • Saved stock (we usually take a chunk of our meat & a few onions, some garlic & make stock while doing prep work for steaks). Or you could use 1 bouillon cube already dissolved in the water.
  • Real butter (or raw coconut oil or shortening)
  • Parsley flakes
  • Unrefined salt
  • Course black pepper
  • Optional: Spike seasoning
  • Einkorn flour (or flour of choice).
  • Milk of choice

So our base gravy recipe that we build on is:

  1. In a medium size sauce pan on medium heat add:
  2. 1/4 to 1/2 cup of stock
  3. 1 tbsp. of butter
  4. Mix in seasonings to taste (about 1/2 tsp to a tsp each).
  5. Gradually add 1/2 cup of flour at a time whisking it in, making sure to let this mixture thicken enough to cook flour (so you are making a Roux).
  6. Now add milk to desired thickness whisking until blended & bubbling.
  7. Lower heat & whisk more until consistency desired
  8. You might need to add more flour or milk for the right consistency.
  9. Serve over country fried steaks.
