Hot grease in the eye SUCKS!

Today was another first for me. I made Chicken Fried Steak for the very first time. It turned out pretty good. The only negative I can say about this recipe is that hot oil in the eye HURTS!!!!

For those that asked, here is the recipe. Enjoy! I stole this off of Pioneer Woman (she has lots of good eats there, feel free to take a look)

Recipe: Fried Round Steak
Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cook Time: 10 Minutes Difficulty: Easy Servings: 6

■3 pounds Cube Steak (round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized)
■1 cup All-purpose Flour
■1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
■3 teaspoons Ground Black Pepper, Or To Taste
■Salt, For Seasoning Meat
■½ cups Canola Oil (more If Needed)
■2 Tablespoons Butter
Preparation Instructions
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Mix together flour, seasoned salt, and pepper.

Season both sides of steaks with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece in flour mixture, pressing to coat with as much flour as possible.

Add butter to pan right before frying.

When butter is melted, fry pieces of steak in butter/oil mixture. Flip when sides are deep golden brown and cook about 1 minute on the other side.

Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately.
