Copycat Cracker Barrel Country Fried Steak

A taste of true southern tradition, favorite dishes such as this sustained generations to where it endears today.

Fried steak is most often a tenderized cube steak covered with a well-seasoned coating of flour or cracker crumbs or both and is either deep-fried or pan-fried.

The pan-fried version of the classic dish is more often referred to as “country fried steak.”

Cracker Barrel Country Store is known for its traditional southern-style recipes.

A super crispy cube steak (or hamburger steak) encrusted in (of all things!) crushed Saltines is the perfectly seasoned base for the cloud of cream gravy that garnishes it.

Serve a country-fried steak alongside a bed of buttermilk mashed potatoes and heaps of sawmill gravy atop the steak and potatoes.
