Chicken Fried Steak

I've always LOVED chicken fried steak. However, I don't do gravy. It's true. When it comes to food, I'm a purist. I don't like ketchup, mustard, mayo, gravy, or Ranch dressing. The Ranch is something that Brian just can't get over. When I made the chicken fried steak, the recipe includes instructions for gravy. I didn't make it because I knew I wouldn't eat it and that Brian would just put Ranch on top of the steak, which he did.

For some reason, I've always been intimidated by chicken fried steak. Fear no more because this recipe is so easy. Plus it's a Cooking Light recipe, so it's healthy!

Chicken Fried Steak
Adapted from Cooking Light

3 tablespoons fat-free milk
2 large egg whites
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (4-ounce) sirloin cubed steaks
2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Combine 3 tablespoons milk and egg whites in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk. Combine 1/3 cup flour and next 4 ingredients (1/3 cup flour through pepper) in a shallow dish. Working with 1 steak at a time, dip in egg mixture; dredge in flour mixture. Repeat procedure with remaining steaks, egg mixture, and flour mixture.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove steaks from pan; keep warm.
