Chicken Fried Steak White Gravy Recipe

2-4 Tbsp. drippings (grease) from the ground beef*
4 Tbsp. flour
2 cups milk
salt and pepper (to taste)
  1. After frying the meat, leave 2-4 Tbsp. of drippings (and crumbs) in the pan, draining the rest.
  2. Add flour to the drippings.
  3. Quickly whisk to mix and loosen the crumbs. The mixture will be thick.
  4. Slowly add milk, whisking to mix into the flour mix. Whisk well.
  5. Bring to a boil, whisking the whole time until the mixture is thick. If it gets too thick, just add a little more milk.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste.


*If the meat is too lean to leave grease for the gravy, you can use bacon grease or cooking oil, but the oil will not flavor it as well as meat grease.
