Hot Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich


Ingredients
SERVES 2 OR 1 REALLY HUNGRY PERSON

 

1lbs Round Steak 

For The Dredge:

200g All Purpose Flour

5g Black Pepper

10g Salt

5g Cayenne

5g Smoked Paprika

5g Onion Powder

5g Garlic Powder

3g Thyme

375g Buttermilk

10g Hot Sauce

100g Panko/ Breadcrumbs

For The Gravy:

1pc Shallot, diced

75g Butter

75g All Purpose Flour

400g Milk

1/2pc Lemon, Juice

10 Parsley Sprigs, chopped

4 Sliced Bread

Directions

1.Butterfly the pieces of steak. Lay between two pieces of parchment paper and pound flat (if you don’t have a mallet just use the bottom of a heavy pot or pan).

2. Combine the AP flour with the first list of ingredients. Mix together well, this will be the first part of your breading.

 3. In a separate bowl mix the buttermilk hot sauce, whisk together to combine.

4. In another separate dish have the panko/ breadcrumbs. Reserve any extra spiced flour as well, as you may want to add a little more kick to the final panko coating.

5.Take each piece of meat one at a time, and first dip in the spiced flour, then the buttermilk, then the panko. Repeat this process with all the pieces of meat.

6.Heat pan with a couple good glugs of cooking oil, and a small nub of butter. Once the oil is hot add the breaded meat a couple pieces at a time.  Cook for a couple min per side, and cool on a wire rack. 

7.Reserve ¾ of the remaining oil from cooking the meat. Toast the bread in the remaining fat, and make sure to stand the bread on its ends to stay nice and crispy

Gravy

Add the reserved oil back to the pan and sweat the shallots in it. Add the butter, then the flour and cook out the raw flour taste. Add a little bit of the milk to the pan and start to whisk out any clumps. Add the remaining milk and keep whisking until smooth. Add Chopped parsley, and lemon juice at the end. Whisk all to incorporate.

Assemble

Stack your fried steak on the toasted bread and cover in gravy. Add crunch if you’d like with some lettuce. Feel free to get extra messy and cover the entire sandwich with gravy again!
