Chicken Fried Steak
Recipe from Diabetic Living

The key to ensuring that the coating gets crispy is to use a very large nonstick skillet so all the steak pieces fit in a single layer.

    fat-free milk
  • 1   cup 
    crushed cornflakes (2 cups whole flakes)
    Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1   teaspoon 
  • 1/4  cup 
    finely chopped onion
  • 1   
    clove garlic, minced
  • 1   tablespoon

Trim fat from steaks. If necessary, place each steak between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet until 1/2 inch thick; remove plastic wrap.
In a shallow dish, combine 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning, and salt. In another shallow dish, combine egg and 2 tablespoons milk. Place crushed cornflakes in a third shallow dish. Dip steaks into flour mixture, turning to coat evenly. Dip into egg mixture, then into cornflakes, turning to coat evenly.
Coat a very large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks to skillet. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes for medium-rare (145 degrees F) to medium (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through cooking. If steaks brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium. Remove steaks from skillet; cover and keep warm.
For gravy:

In the same skillet, heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add onion and garlic to skillet; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. If desired, add bourbon, stirring to scrape up any crusty browned bits. In a small bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup milk, 1 tablespoon flour, and 1/4 teaspoon steak seasoning until smooth. Add all at once to onion mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
Serve steaks with gravy. If desired, sprinkle with pepper.
