Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Fried Steak

(this post contains affiliate links)

Two years ago I got the The Pioneer Woman Cooks Cookbook and I pinned different recipes to remind myself to make them. One of those recipes was her Chicken Fried Steak. In the two years since I pinned it, it has been repinned nearly 1200 times with 90 cute little heart likes. So I figured it was way past time I actually made it myself, ha!

Dear BakingBySue, you’re welcome for sending so much traffic your way over the past two years. 😉 I finally got around to making it last week. And it was amazing. 🙂

I considered making a healthy salad or steaming a veggie to go along side this meal, but when you’re frying food in your kitchen… well, mashed potatoes just call your name. 😉 So I made my favorite old fashioned mashed potatoes and we devoured this meal. If you like good old fashioned chicken fried steak, you should try this recipe. You’ll love it!

Do you love the Pioneer Woman as much as I do? She has the best home cooking recipes!

Have you had chicken fried steak before? This is the first time I’ve had it in years (since before we got married), but it was SO good!

Love Rach

    • I definitely will add that to my list of recipes to try! I haven’t tried it yet! Also, I totally thought of you when I was making those mashed potatoes. It’s good to know I’m not the only one who could totally eat them for a meal. 😉

  11. I have never had chicken fried steak before! It always just sounded like a lot of meat, but now that I’ve actually read the recipe, I realize that there is no actual chicken in it. Soooo, maybe I should make it 😉

    • I know what you mean. It does sound like a really heavy meal. And even though it’s not chicken + steak, it’s still a little heavy just from the fried part of it. Not exactly a healthy meal, but it sure is tasty! ​

  12. oh my goodness – I am droooooling.

  13. I have always loved the Pioneer Woman. Her recipes are the bomb and I really want to make her iced coffee recipe (while it’s still warm out, haha!). The chicken fried steak looks so good!
