Steak Fingers with Country Gravy remind me of childhood. Growing up in Oklahoma, they were a staple on diner and drive-in menus.

For those of you that did not grow up in Oklahoma-Texas cattle country, and are scratching your heads, steak fingers are essentially chicken fried steak strips, served with white gravy for dipping.

Making - Steak Fingers with Country Gravy Recipe


After moving across the country, I went many years without eating steak fingers. Yet recently I was walking down the freezer aisle of the grocery store and notice bags of frozen steak fingers in the glass cabinet.

Even the frozen factory-made rendition made me crave them, and I decided it was time for my kids to taste a little bit of my childhood.

How to Make - Steak Fingers with Country Gravy Recipe

Using tenderized cube steak as the base, Steak Fingers with Country Gravy are inexpensive to make, quick to fry up, and always a crowd pleaser!

Both the steak fingers and the gravy are made in the same skillet for easy clean-up.

The keys to making amazing crispy Steak Fingers with Country Gravy are…

  • Pat the cube steak dry, so it doesn’t saturate the breading.
  • Make sure the oil is very hot, between 350 – 375 degrees F.
  • Shake off all the excess breading before placing the steak fingers in the skillet. The crumbs that fall off will burn and turn the oil dark.
  • Place the fried steak fingers in a warm oven to keep them crispy, while you finish frying and make the craving.

Once the steak fingers are fried, wipe out the skillet, and start the gravy. If the oil stays clean enough, you can reuse a portion of it to make the gravy. However, I like the taste of gravy made with butter even better.

If you love chicken fried steak, Steak Fingers with Country Gravy is going to be your new favorite party snack. Even your pickiest eaters will fall for these little guys!

    Finally! A recipe that doesn’t use chicken as main ingredient and that’s a hearty snack. What can be used instead of worscheshire sauce though? It contains anchovies and we have severe seafood allergies.
    Thanks for the great recipe

    Before this, I’ve only cooked beef cube steaks, which can be very tough. These are very tender and tender, my husband and I enjoyed them very much. However, next time I’ll not cut them into strips and just fry the pork cube steaks whole and make mash potatoes to go with the gravy. Breading and frying the strips (fingers) was so intense that my husband had to man turning the strips as they fried so they wouldn’t burn or I would only be able to fry one strip at a time. It was nice to have his help in the kitchen for a change though. Thanks for introducing me to a different cut of pork. Don’t we all love pork?
