|Chicken Fried Steak with Green Chili & Egg
2/3 cup masa harina
1/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp granulate garlic or garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp Kosher or fine sea salt, plus more for finishing as desired
pinches of chile powder or ground chiles (optional)
6 extra large eggs, separated
2 TBS butter (optional)
2-3 TBS canola or peanut oil
4 thin beef or pork cube steaks, about 6 oz each and 1/4 inch thick
1-2 pints Tony's Green Chili (warmed) or Green Chile Gravy (recipe link follows)
Place four plates in oven and preheat to 150 degrees.
Combine the masa harina, flour, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, pepper, salt and chiles (if using) in a wide shallow bowl. Lightly beat 2 of the eggs in another wide shallow bowl.
Dredge cube steaks in flour mixture and shake off excess, dip in beaten egg and then coat evenly in the flour mixture.
Heat a large, heavy frying pan over medium high heat (about 340-360°) melt the butter with the oil (or use all oil). Add breaded cube steaks to pan two at a time. Brown first side well, turn and repeat until browned and cooked through - about 3-4 minutes per side depending on conditions and thickness. Transfer to a shallow pan with a rack or lined with paper towel. Sprinkle lightly with salt (optional) and hold in oven until ready to serve.
Meanwhile heat chili and cook eggs sunny side up or over easy. Spoon green chile onto warmed plates, top with chicken fried steak and crown with a soft cooked egg (optional). Serve immediately for breakfast with potatoes and fruit or for supper with Mexican rice and guacamole salad - flour or corn tortillas on the side. Serves 4.
