Omaha Steaks Chicken Fried Steak is good. Really good. It’s a gourmet take on a down-home classic that our customers (and hungry staff) can’t get enough of. There are a few competing histories of chicken fried steak, but the general agreement is that it’s a descendent of wienerschnitzl that’s spent plenty of time in the American South. It’s almost always a tasty cut of beef deep-fried in a crunchy batter and served with gravy.

Omaha Steaks chicken fried steaks batter is perfect — crunchy and satisfying with little bit of a peppery kick. It’s par-fried, meaning it’s ready for the oven and barely takes any work in your kitchen to come out perfectly every time. Inside is tender, juicy, flavorful Omaha Steaks beef… and the combination is perfect. Instead of pounding beef and flouring and battering and all of that, all you have to do is put it in the oven and serve.

Serve with what? Gravy. Country-Style White Gravy to be specific. Omaha Steaks super-popular, super-easy gravy is the best — it uses a Veloute sauce which is basically a chicken stock reduction thickened with a little white roux. Instead of that fatty, wallpaper paste gravy that you often see with this dish, ours has an incredible layered chicken flavor that really pairs perfectly with chicken fried steak.

Speaking of pairing, chicken fried steak is easy to serve, our chefs like to start off with a nice tossed green salad. For side dishes, stick with the southern theme and serve it with sweet corn, green beans, or both. For starch, try Omaha Steaks smashed red potatoes or something similar… but there’s really only one thing that matters here. It’s gravy. Top EVERYTHING with country-style white gravy.

To show you how easy this is to make a dinner for 4 in less than 30 minutes, the Omaha Steaks Test Kitchen put together a quick little step-by-step recipe using the items mentioned above. Try it!
