Low Carb Chicken Fried Steak Recipe

Keto chicken fried steak is my husband’s favorite keto meal. He could eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, but I usually only make it for dinner. It’s the ideal recipe for when you get off work and want to make a homecooked meal that doesn’t require a lot of time and effort. In fact, this easy keto dinner can be made in less than 30 minutes!

Juicy and tender cubed steak is coated in a gluten-free, low carb breading and fried in butter to create a thick, crispy crust that is perfect for soaking up that delicious easy keto gravy you can make with the leftover brown bits and butter in the skillet.

Serve with my famous mashed cauliflower recipe and steamed green beans for an easy homecooked keto dinner everyone will enjoy!

Cubed Steak

Cubed steak comes from the lean, boneless areas of the chuck or round region of the cow. It is mechanically tenderized using a cubing machine that has two sharp discs which cut and shape irregular cuts of meat. It also makes the meat that would normally be pretty tough to eat without slow roasting into tender cuts that are ideal for quick cooking.

Crispy Coating

To achieve a thick crispy coating on this low carb chicken fried steak, we dip the cubed steak twice in a special coating. The first coating is a light dusting of almond flour. The steak is then dredged in an egg wash and then coated with a thicken coating of ground pork rinds that are seasoned with garlic powder.

Easy Keto Gravy

You have to have gravy along with your chicken fried steak. It’s easy to whip up a keto gravy using the leftover butter and brown bits in the pan. Simply whisk in heavy cream and chicken broth into your skillet and let simmer over low to medium heat. Cook until the liquid reduces and the sauce thickened.

If you find that the gravy isn’t as thick as you would like, whisk in 1 teaspoon of arrowroot powder. This is my favorite keto thickener to work with when trying to add some viscosity to a liquid.

Reheating Leftover Keto Chicken Fried Steak

If you have leftover keto chicken fried steak, you can store it in the refrigerator. To reheat, simply heat in the air fryer or broil in the oven on high for a few minutes until cooked through and the crust is crisp again.

Want another way to repurpose this recipe if you don’t like leftovers? Try a keto chicken fried steak chaffle sandwich. Make some low carb sandwich bread using your waffle maker. Spread on butter and pour on leftover gravy for a delicious bite!

  1. Wow! This was amazing. I used Montreal Steak Seasoning on the meat and in the gravy. Definitely will be a repeat for us!

  2. Loved it. Still trying to perfect cauliflower as a mashed potato replacement. Always seems to watery and loose but the steak was great.
