Chicken Fried Steak Sandwiches Recipe

Chicken Fried Steak Sandwiches are just the sandwich you need when you've got a lot of hungry people. They'll disappear before your eyes!

When my husband and I were dating, we would often grab lunch at a little taco joint that served the best chicken fried steak sandwiches. I normally stuck with the soft tacos, but once I took a bite of Tony’s chicken fried steak sandwich, I was hooked.

When my kids were little, they were always a little confused as to whether we were having steak or chicken. I would explain that it’s steak, fried like you fry chicken. (Unless, of course, you're making chicken fried chicken, which uses the breast!). 

They would just shrug their shoulders and I knew they really just wanted to know how much longer until supper would be ready.

Sometimes I will cut the steak into small pieces and make chicken fried steak bites with country gravy. It’s totally irresistible as well, but is a bit more time consuming and a bit more of a mess.

So if I’m in a time crunch, chicken fried steak sandwiches are the way to go.

Tenderized steak is deep fried with a crispy coating and it is my ultimate comfort food. You can often find tenderized steaks on sale at the grocery store and I love that they make a quick and easy meal.

Think about serving them up with tater tots, mac and cheese or parmesan smashed potatoes.

To create the crispy coating, I season some all-purpose flour in one dish and then combine egg and milk in another. Dredging the tenderized steak in flour, then the egg and milk, and then back in the flour, coating it well. It’s then deep fried until crispy.

Ensuring your oil is hot will keep the coating from absorbing too much oil and being so greasy.

When that comfort food craving hits, these chicken fried steak sandwiches are sure to hit the spot. I added a new layer of deliciousness to these sandwiches by topping them off with my sriracha comeback sauce, which is a bit like spicy mayonnaise but 1,000 times better.

Cook these up and just watch them disappear!
