This country(chicken)-fried steak has all the components of a Samoa Girl Scout cookie- you got your chocolate, your coconut, and your caramel!
Well, Girl Scout cookie season is currently underway and I still got some bottles of chocolate coconut caramel beer left over(3 to be exact). Since my beer-battered pork chops were a big success, I figure it might work for steak too! Well it does, but you really need to stick a meat thermometer in each steak as it's cooking to determine if it's done, because if it's brown inside, it means it's well done, which is still edible, but harder to chew and cut.
Also, if parts of the steak are black or brown before cooking them, cut out those parts because those are rotten.
I'd say this recipe is 60% coconut, 30% chocolate, and 10% caramel. This is definitely comfort food at its finest!
This recipe works fine without the beer- I just needed an excuse to use it.
If you can only find plain coconut milk, all you gotta do is mix 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder into the milk to make it chocolatey.
My dad didn't try this recipe due to the beer and chocolate in it.
You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
A medium bowl
3 small bowls
A frying pan
A meat thermometer
For the steak:
1 lb. thin steaks, each cut in half
3 beaten and whisked eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup chocolate coconut caramel beer(optional)
1 1/2 cups coconut flour
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
Pinch of paprika
Pinch of onion powder
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of salt
Refined coconut oil
For the chocolate coconut caramel gravy:
Coconut drippings from frying the steaks
2 cups chocolate coconut milk
2 tbsp. coconut flour
Caramel sauce to taste
Serve with a Samoa Girl Scout cookie and potato salad
To make the steaks:
1. Mix the beaten and whisked eggs, buttermilk, and beer(optional) in a medium bowl until fully combined.
2. Mix the next 7 steak ingredients in a small bowl and put the coconut flakes in a separate small bowl.
3. Dredge the steaks in the egg mixture, then the flour mixture, then back into the egg mixture, then in the coconut flakes, and onto a plate.
4. Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan. Make sure the entire pan is fully coated in melted oil. Put the steaks into the frying pan. Let them cook for 1-2 minutes per side(1 if you want your steaks medium rare, 2 if you want them well done) and flip over with a spatula and fork. Place the cooked steaks onto a plate. You're going to need to make multiple batches.
To make the gravy:
1. After each batch spoon the stuff that's in the pan into a small bowl before starting the next one.
2. Mix the drippings with the rest of the gravy ingredients.
1. Pour the gravy onto the steaks and serve with a Samoa Girl Scout Cookie and potato salad.
