Okay, so I’ve had this recipe in my old school, ACTUAL cook book for years now. I have no idea where I got the recipe from, but it’s so good, I’ve made is many times. Served with mashed potatoes and white country gravy…so so so good.
- 1 1/2 lbs. boneless beef sirloin steak, cut into 1 in. thin strips
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 Tbsp. grill seasoning (I used a sriracha rub I had on had, but your favorite seasoning will work fine)
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. garlic powder
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 3 cups canola oil for frying
Beat together egg, milk, seasoning and 1/2 cup of flour in a large bowl. Add beef strips and toss until well coated. Cover and place int the fridge for at least 2 hours. Sift 2 1/2 cups flour with garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Remove steak strips from batter and allow excess to drip off. Dredge each piece with seasoned flour and place on a baking sheet. Place in the freezer until firm, 1 hour to overnight. Heat oil to 370 degrees in fryer or skillet. Drop a few frozen pieces into oil and fry until golden brown on the outside, about 5 minutes. Do no overcrowd the pan.
