Tjaden Ranch Nebraska Beef Recipes



As with most things, my husband doesn’t like to follow a set of instructions – He prefers to just dive in and experiment until it is right. Cooking is no different and his chicken fried steak recipe is something he has definitely mastered! We came up with the following measurements but you may need to adjust to your liking.

2. In separate dish, mix eggs and milk.

3. Melt 2 T. butter in cast-iron skillet on medium-low to medium heat.

4. Dip 2 steaks into flour mixture, then egg mixture and back into flour mixture.

5. Once butter is melted, place steaks in skillet and let cook 7-8 minutes, per side, or until cooked through and golden brown on the outside.
