Directions
Basic Biscuits:

Steak and Gravy: Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1 side of the meat with the House Seasoning and the other side with the seasoning salt, and then dredge the meat in buttermilk and then flour. Heat 1/2 cup oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 or 4 of the steaks to the hot oil and fry until browned, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Remove each steak to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with the remaining steaks, adding up to 1/4 cup more oil, as needed.

Make the gravy by adding the 2 tablespoons remaining flour to the pan drippings, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the salt. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until the flour is medium brown and the mixture is bubbly. Slowly add the whole milk and the Ac'cent, if using stirring constantly. Return the steaks to the skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, and place the onions on top of the steaks. Cover the pan, and let simmer for 30 minutes.

Biscuits: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside. Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening. Add yeast and buttermilk and mix well. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter and place on greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Split biscuits in half and top with country fried steak and drizzle with gravy.

House Seasoning:

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

What a soggy messss terrible. I should have done what I know to be rite and never put the meat in and simmer it with out the sauce thickening first item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think the typist made an error! The recipe follows the video (the video is in another post, check it out), except for these sentences: "Return the steaks to the skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, and place the onions on top of the steaks. Cover the pan, and let simmer for 30 minutes." Ignore these sentences. This would put your steak in the gravy, which would turn that nice new crust into a soggy mess! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm a pretty nifty cook, but man, this just.. fell apart, literally. Followed the recipe to a "t" but basically, the breading didn't stay on. then I didn't understand why it says to put the steak back into the "gravy". Basically all the breading came off into a soggy mess. The steak was still good and tender, but just.. not the crispy country fried steak I'm used to. item not reviewed by moderator and published
finger lickin good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried so many biscuit recipes and failed in taste. This one had the best tasting of them all. Not just for biscuits and Gravy, but a good Butter and jelly Biscuit as well. Just awesome flavor and light and fluffy. Now tell me where I went wrong. I didn't half the recipe, I did it just as it said, every ingredient. But, after mixing everything together. It was still Liquidly. I added more flour, but I ran out. I had no choice but to spoon them into the pan and bake them that way. And they were Great!! Everyone loved them. But, what did I do wrong? I wanted to roll them out. And hoping to make more to freeze and cook later. item not reviewed by moderator and published

One of my favorite Country Fried Steak recipes! I've made it many times. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Was a good and verily easy meal. I just wish I could make Country Fried Steak not taste so grease. Maybe I will try less oil next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
IMPORTANT!!! Guys, there is an error in the recipe as written. Paula has 2 Country Fried Steak recipes here on FN. Whoever was in charge of posting the recipe made a mistake and mixed up part of the directions. You are not supposed to return the steaks to the skillet....that is meant for her Bubba's Country Fried Steak. If you watch the video you will see the way it was meant to be prepared. I wish they would update the recipe but I have yet to find a recipe here that was corrected after the original posting. This is a fabulous dish though if prepared correctly! And a cast iron skillet works the best. item not reviewed by moderator and published
