Ugh!? How do I cook?

So I've tried probably 20 times to make country fried steak and each and every time my breading is barely there and its bland. What I did this last time was coat it in egg & buttermilk, salt & pepper and dipped in flour, then pan fried for what seemed like forever. What am I doing wrong? How can I get a even coat of flavorful batter to stick to these things?

  • Try using seasoned bread crumbs instead of the flour, or plain bread crumbs with salt and pepper, garlic powder and possibly basil.

  • You need to season the meat and the flour with salt & pepper, I like to use Lawrey's seasoned salt, you can even add a little garlic powder or hot pepper if you like that . Then let them sit for about 5-10 minutes , make sure you have the oil really hot. It should sizzle when you put the meat in. Then turn the heat down. That should solve the problem.
