1 lb. cube steak (4 pieces)
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. creole (cajun) seasoning
3 Tbsp. pan grease (add butter if you don't have enough grease left in the pan)
3 Tbsp. flour
1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk
1. Mix the egg with 3/4 cup milk.
2. Mix 1 1/2 cups flour with the creole seasoning and seasoned salt.
3. Salt and pepper each side of the cube steaks. Then dredge each steak in the milk mixture, then the flour mixture. Dredge in the milk then flour again.
4. Heat skillet at medium heat and coat with about 1/4 inch oil. When oil is hot, place the steaks in the skillet and cook until browned on each side. (4-5 minutes a side)
Feel free to add more creole seasoning while the steaks are cooking.
5. When the steaks are done, place them on a cooling rack over a pan. This will prevent then from sitting in grease and keep them a little crispier while you make the gravy. If you are concerned about them getting too cool, feel free to place them in a warm oven.
6. Leave about 3 Tbsp. grease in your skillet. If you don't have enough grease, add a couple Tbsp. butter. Stir 3 Tbsp. flour into the fat to make a roux. Cook and stir until golden brown.
7. Add chicken broth to deglaze the pan, then add milk. Use more liquid to make a thinner gravy and less to make a thicker gravy. Add more salt and pepper as needed. Cook at a low heat until desired thickness is reached.
Serve over country fried steak.
I received several items for review from Vitacost. Vitacost is an online retailer that sells many name brands and their own Vitacost brand of vitamins, supplements, health foods and whole foods.
I chose to review products that I either already love or have wanted to try. I have been using Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sucanat in all of my homemade breads and rolls in place of brown sugar. We love the flavor. It adds a hint of molassis flavor that is just lovely in homemade breads.
We love maple syrup and were excited to try Shady Maple Farms Organic Maple Syrup. We tried this syrup on homemade waffles and enjoyed its rich flavor. It has a stronger flavor than most other maple syrups we have tried. A nice feature is the no drip spout.
I have been wanting to try coconut butter for a while so I decided to review Artisana Organic Coconut Butter. The flavor reminded me of coconut oil with a more dense texture. I tried it on homemade bread alone, but preferred it layered with nutella. I can't wait to try it in some new recipes.
The kids enjoyed trying Annie's Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks. I tried them too and have to admit they are the best fruit snacks I have ever had. The flavor and texture is exactly what a fruit snack should be. My 3 year old said they were "super yummy".

Simple and delicious. These crispy, savory potatoes pair perfectly with sweet applesauce.
Make 10-12 potato cakes
2 cups cold mashed potatoes
1. Mix mashed potatoes with the egg, a little salt, freshly ground pepper, and garlic powder.
2. Heat your skillet to a medium heat. Drizzle some olive oil in the skillet and add about 1/2 Tbsp. butter.
3. Shape the potato mixture into patties and flatten in the skillet. Salt and pepper the potato cakes. Then cover the skillet and cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
4. Make sure the potato cakes have had a chance to brown and form a crispy crust before trying to flip them. If they are not crispy, they can crumble. If they crumble, just smash them back down and cook some more. Flip the potato cakes. Add a little more oilve oil and butter to the skillet. Salt and pepper again. Recover and cook again for 5 to 7 minutes.
Once they are crispy on both sides, they are done. Serve with applesauce.
