Keto-Friendly Chicken Fried Steak

Heather and I are doing a great job eating well to kick off 2018. That means we’ve avoided most fried foods, and definitely avoided ordering in junk food. We feel great, and are fitting into clothes better, and that says a lot considering we’re also sleep training our almost nine (!##@!) month old son. Despite our good habits, we still have the occasional craving.

Chicken fried steak wasn’t a big staple for either of us growing up, but let’s be honest—it sounds amazing. Amazing in that it sounds like it’s too unhealthy to really be something you should eat. We didn’t let that stop us from making a low-carb friendly version. I’ve been strictly keto for the past 2 months, and eventually I’ll write more about my results either here or elsewhere, but for now, here’s a recipe for your keto kitchen. If you want to hear more about what I’ve been doing (and how I’ve lost about 30 pounds) let me know in the comments.

Enough yapping, on to the recipe…

Ingredients
1 lb beef sirloin, pounded thin
1 2.5-oz bag pork rinds
1/4 C coconut flour
1 egg
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 C avocado oil
1 Tbsp ghee

Method

Prepare your ingredients for dredging the sirloin. Grind your pork rinds using a blender, and mix in your black pepper, paprika, cayenne, and coconut flour. If you use the brand that is our favorite (already seasoned with black pepper), omit the black pepper. Whisk the egg in a second bowl.

Dredge your pieces of steak in the egg wash, pork rind breading, and set aside.

Heat your oil and ghee in a high-walled, non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Cook the steak for 1-2 minutes on each side.

Serve and enjoy!
