I love me some chicken fried steak with creamy country gravy. So, when a saw a recipe for chicken fried hamburger with gravy, I had to give it a try.
You usually make traditional chicken fried steak is with cubed steak. Cubed steak is tenderized but it can still be more on the chewy or tough side sometimes. My family doesn’t like it if it ever ends up chewy at all.
Since this was using hamburger as a base, I figured my family would love it. The hamburger would be more tender. Also, it can be cut with a fork. No knife is necessary with you eat this.
The dredge or breading for this chicken fried hamburger has both flour and cormeal in it. The cornmeal adds to the texture and crunch of this breading.
After you cook those breaded patties, you use the wonderful brown bits in the skillet along with 1/3 cup of the cooking oil to make a wonderful white gravy. Add in some flour, milk, onion powder along with salt and pepper to make this gravy complete.
This chicken fried hamburger with gravy was a hit. The patties were moist and tender on the inside with a nice crunchy coating on the outside. Be sure to serve these with some mashed potatoes too!Print
