heavy cream1/4 cup heavy cream
eggs2 large eggs
pork rinds1 1/2 cups crushed pork rinds
parmesan cheese1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
onion powder1 1/2 tsp onion powder
garlic powder1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
paprika1 tsp paprika
cayenne pepperPinch of cayenne pepper
cooking oilCooking oil
butter2 tbsp butter
pork breakfast sausage12 oz pork breakfast sausage

garlic3 cloves garlic, minced
heavy cream1 1/2 cups heavy cream
parsley1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
sea salt1/2 tsp sea salt
bell pepperPepper to taste


Sprinkle the cube steaks with sea salt and black pepper on both sides.
In a shallow bowl, combine the heavy cream and eggs. Fork whisk.
Combine the pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and cayenne pepper. Pour the mixture into a thin layer on a large plate. This is the breading for the steak.
In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1/4 to 1/2 inch of oil.
Dip the cube steak into the egg wash and then dredge in the “breading,” coating thoroughly on both sides.
Drop the breaded cube steak into the oil. Fry until crispy and golden brown, about 3 minutes for each side.
Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the sausage (crumbled if ground, sliced if using link sausage). Cook until the sausage is browned. Using a slotted spoon, remove the sausage from the pan, retaining the drippings. Set the sausage aside.
Add the onion and garlic. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook until the onion is translucent and soft. Stir often to avoid burning the garlic.
To the pan, add the heavy cream, parsley and sea salt. Increase the heat to medium and bring to a boil. Once the gravy begins to boil, lower the heat to low and simmer. Once the gravy begins to thicken, add the sausage back to the pan.
Pour the gravy over top of the Chicken Fried Steak and ENJOY!
