Are you missing chicken fried steak in your life, now that you eat gluten free? I have news for you; you can easily make this gluten free chicken fried steak to fill the void!

I’m from Oklahoma, but I think we sort of get thrown in the mix when it comes to location. Many people consider Oklahoma the Midwest or the Plains, and then others say it’s in the South. I think we are somewhere in the middle.

Oklahomans love southern foods like sweet tea, buttermilk mashed potatoes, corn casseroles, and chicken fried steak. It’s fairly easy to find lots of southern fried foods here in Oklahoma. We also are very much a beef state, likely because cattle farms are such a huge part of Oklahoma.

Our home happens to be right in the middle of several cattle farms, so we get to stop by and see cows on a daily basis.

Last week there was one in the middle of the road. He was pretty happy eating the trees at the side of the road, and then he started the stare down. He must have known I was about to make steak. Whoops.

I decided to make this chicken fried steak easily with gluten-free all-purpose flour. It’s actually very simple to make. I have found that with gluten-free flour it’s not nearly as breaded as it would be with regular wheat flour, but it’s still just as delicious.

I honestly like it better with a little less breading…gasp! We like to serve this with a side of mashed potatoes and green veggies. I mix it up between salad, broccoli, green beans, or fried okra. My husband prefers fried okra, but this past week I tried to lighten it up just a bit with a salad instead.
