Serve Rice And Shine has 160 pages including the index which lists rice recipes to use for every meal of the day. Including special occasions, cooking for a crowd, and just about any dish you could possibly think of with rice. It is a delightful little book with primarily black and white photos with a few exceptions I have shown above.

Recipe: Chicken Fried Steak

Hi Yall,
Just had to start with this recipe since it is a family favorite.
Menu: chicken fried steak, oven baked fries, small salad, whole wheat bread, and iced tea.
Dessert is homemade banana pudding.
Basic Southern Chicken Fried Steak

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2   cups whole milk
  • 2   large eggs
  • 2   cups all-purpose flour
  • 2.  teaspoons seasoned salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4   teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4   teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3   pounds cube steak (tenderized round steak that’s been extra tenderized)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2   cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1   tablespoon butter

Directions

For the steak: Begin with setting up an assembly line of dishes. Mix the milk with the eggs in one; the flour mixed with the seasoned salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, paprika and cayenne in another; and the meat in a third. Then have one clean plate at the end to receive the breaded meat.

Work with one piece of meat at a time. Sprinkle both sides with kosher salt and black pepper, then place it in the flour mixture. Turn to coat. Place the meat into the milk/egg mixture, turning to coat. Finally, place it back in the flour and turn to coat (dry mixture/wet mixture/dry mixture). Place the breaded meat on the clean plate, then repeat with the remaining meat.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter. Drop in a few sprinkles of flour to make sure it’s sufficiently hot. When the butter sizzles immediately, you know it’s ready. (It should not brown right away, if it does, the fire is too hot.) Cook the meat, 3 pieces at a time, until the edges start to look golden brown, about 2 minutes each side. Remove the meat to a paper towel-lined plate and keep them warm by covering lightly with another plate or a sheet of foil. Repeat until all the meat is cooked.
