Deep Fried Steaks


Deep Fried Steaks recipe.  Steaks (top sirloin are reasonably priced and work well) are seasoned with a purchased steak rub then prepared in a Turkey Deep-Fryer.  When fried at the proper temperature these steaks are not greasy and are exceptionally flavorful.  This is a gluten free version of fried steak. This recipe assumes you are feeding at least 6 people or more.  Otherwise you can use the instructions for using a Traditional Deep Fat Fryer Or Deep Pan.

Other Deep Fried Steaks

Another method for fried steak is the old "chicken fried steak" method.  In that method you actually coat the steak in batter, then deep fry it in in a deep pan or even a deep skillet.  This method does have added "breading" but the flavor can be very good.

Turkey Fryer Method

Place each steak on the rack. Season each steak with the McCormick Montreal steak seasoning (or your own favorite dry seasoning blend) and place on rack.

Bring oil to 350° F, keeping a close watch on the temperature. It is important to maintain a 350° F while cooking. Place rack in the basket or directly into pot, (using basket is optional.)

Lower basket into 350°F grease or oil very slowly. Wear a cooking glove.

Traditional Deep Fat Fryer Or Deep Pan

You don't have to use a Turkey Deep Fryer for this recipe.  Just follow the guidelines above except you need to place 3 cups of oil in either a regular (not turkey) deep fat fryer. Then, follow the instructions above.

If you are using a deep pan rather than a fryer with a basket then turn the steaks carefully using tongs with insulated handles.
