Helping Mom in the kitchen..

Callie, what are you doing Mom. Those biscuits sure look yummy..
Louie, Mom this is getting boring.. Are you going to drop anything?
Blueman, also bored with all this.. When is it going to be done?
Mom was busy in the kitchen on Sunday making brunch for the kids.. She was busy making a German Egg Cake with bacon.. It sure smelt yummy in the kitchen..

Ok Mom thought she would post the chicken fried steak recipe although Mom has a problem with measuring anything she will give you the drift of it.

1. Get some cube steak.
2. Egg mixture - 4 or 5 eggs in a bowl - whip them up with a bit of milk..
3. Flour mixture - equal parts of all purpose flour and pancake mix. (The pancake mix seems to make the batter a bit fluffy)
Salt, Pepper, Mrs Dash, (whatever seasoning you like) put this right into the flour mixture.
4. Dip cube steak into the eggs then into the flour, back in the eggs and then back into the flour patting it so it is quite thick..
5. Drop this into a cast iron skillet with a pretty deep layer of hot grease. (Cast iron seems to get hot enough and makes the coating a bit crispier than other pans)
6. Fry till done, flipping frequently..
I usually serve this with mashed potatoes, white gravy and a vegie of your choice..
As you can see it is hard to duplicate Mom's cooking since she doesn't use those measuring cups much... Her Grandmother taught her how to cook when she was young and Grandma didn't even own a measuring cup..

Both Stumpy and the Berner have mad counter surfing skillz, looks like Callie could keep up with them.

Thanks for the recipe! I don't measure much, so thats all I need. I don't cook during the week so I won't try it til next weekend. I will send any complaints your way!

Now about the German egg cakes with bacon cakes...

Stella said...

I'm sorry, I don't want to be rude or anything but your mom's approximations (get "some" cube steak). Your mom and my M should get together to approximate, and if we're lucky, unlike you,my three furiends here, we'll have something to eat. My M just corrected me and told me that all joking aside, this recipe sounds yummy.
In that case; I apologize, now can I have some?
Callie looks so cute on her tippy-toes
Twink!

...another delicious sounding recipe from our blog friends... We made a New Year's Resolution to watch what we are eating, and right now biscuits ...biiiiscuits... and chicken fried steak are off of the list. I can't wait until they are back on the list!

OMG, your mom is an awesome cook! We would have been right there at her feet waiting for freebies to fall too!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Niamh said...

Your mom is very coordinated to not drop anything while she cooks. We have found that pushing Barbara behind the knees works to get things to fall on the floor!

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose
