Gluten-Free Free Country Fried Steak


My husband and I are both born and raised in Texas so we love Country Fried Steak! When my husband had to start eating Gluten Free this was one of the first recipes I searched for and worked on to perfect.  We can still have our Southern Comfort food while eating Gluten Free and that makes my husband very happy!

Gluten Free Free Country Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes & Gravy



  1. I’m going to give this a try tomorrow. Thanks for having it on your page for me to find.

  2. Really, this is your recipe? I’m sick and tired of “gluten free bloggers” posting “recipes” that took them ever-so-long to perfect when all it consists of is going to the store and buying some pre-made gluten free flour mix. Do ya’ll think everyone with a gluten deficiency is just an absolute idiot and can’t even figure out the most mundane things?!

    • I am sorry you are offended. I hope you find another recipe that will be of more value to you.

    • Goodness gracious. Can’t you just move on? Maybe you aren’t a busy mom, Anne. I actually didn’t really need the recipe. Wanted to make sure I was on the right track because instead of using all my flours (which of course is possible but messy and time consuming and this is not the night for it) I wanted something easy and quick. You’re a snot. And I hope you find something better to do with your time. Ewwww. Some people put there do need gluten free help, and a nice cut to the chase recipe is helpful.

      And I’m tired of negetieve people like you go away

    • Anne, I’m with you….I’ve tried so many “best” GF recipes and spent a lot of money to find out that the taste or texture is horrible! I’m getting tired of it….

  3. Oh my goodness, sorry Amber for how rude “anne” was. I am THRILLED to find a simple recipe. PLEASE give me one like that over one that takes 50 some odd ingredients to make. You were very kind in your response to her. I can’t WAIT to try this recipe!

    • Thank you Susan! I really appreciate your kind words.

    • I agree. Most complex recipes with 50 ingredients are more work than I’m willing to spend, especially when there are so many good mixes already out there. The trick is knowing that a recipe has actually been tested with GF flour mix instead of all-purpose wheat flour and indeed works (perhaps with a few small tricks) rather than finding out the hard way that it doesn’t

  4. Holy Smokes.. I was searching to see if someone had tried CFSteak and even if this is from Red Mills, which I just bought, it sure helps to see if someone else had success. Karma will follow those.. geez Glad I found your post!

  5. Does regular milk have gluten? Just wondering why you are using rice milk? I/ my family don’t have gluten allergies but I will be preparing a meal for someone who does.

    Does the GF flour taste different? Just wondering what to expect with this recipe.


    • Regular milk is gluten free. My husband also has a dairy intolerance. When it comes to the taste I can’t tell the difference when I make this but we can tell a difference in the gravy. It still taste really good.

  6. Good recipe, I added about a teaspoon to the flower and it turned out amazing! Will make again!

  7. Typo: meant to say I added a teaspoon of salt to the flower mix.

  8. Absolutely wonderful – we had non-gluten free company who couldn’t tell the difference. We love finding simple gluten free recipes that don’t require a lot of ingredients or a ton of prep work. It’s so nice to have someone else do the experimenting to get the gluten-free ingredient ratio just right : )

  9. Excellent recipe. Thank you!

  10. Personally, my mom always told me, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, then shut your pie hole” (referring to Anne). I think it is wonderful for simple recipes to be posted. We eat gluten free and I have gone to great lengths to make different foods, but sometimes you just need a simple recipe. You get so bogged down with finding all. The ingredients that your mind blanks out with old fashioned recipes. I say thank you and keep the recipes coming.

  11. Just what I was looking for, something simple to make that I have been missing. Thanks for posting

  12. “Anne” is likely just a troll who goes from blog to blog looking for nasty things to say…I love simple, as I am certainly not a great cook, and am looking forward to trying this. Thanks for sharing!

    I absolutely LOVE CFS, when I had to go GF I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to have it anymore. Bob’s Red Mill is now a staple in my house (all of them; the cornbread is wonderful, pancakes are great) & his AP Flour Blend works in ANY recipe that I need flour for. Thanks for posting for “newbies” to see how simple & easy preparing GF dishes that we all love can be, without a huge expense either! YUMMY! I think I’ll cook this later this week.

  14. Amber Ludwig says:

    Ummmm… Hello to my weakness!! Country gravy!! Drools!! I would smoother anything with it if I could!!!

  15. James Robert says:

    Thank You, I just printed to try this myself for the kids

    • Pioneer makes a really good, prepackaged, gluten free white gravy. Have to order it from Amazon, but it is worth it. Pioneer GF white gravy plus cheese, or powdered cheese makes a great cheese soup.

  16. My family was very happy to eat these gluten free and dairy free. Thanks for sharing your recipe! We used pork cube steaks.

  17. Sheridan says:

    This was easy and delicious!

  18. Douglas Dillon says:

    Should’ve put how much oil and how much milk for the gravy.

    Dummy me didn’t read it, because I don’t usually cook, all the way down . Oops running to the store, hope make it before she gets here. Lol

  19. Hannah Magnuson says:

    How much oil did you use to fry the steaks? I couldn’t find a measurement. Thanks!

  20. I have to say this turn out very well. I found it refreshing that you didn’t have your own gluten free flour mix (that requires 5 different flours, and makes 20 pounds) that it was simple and easy. And super yummy!

  21. does it make a difference if your gf all purpose flour contains xanthan gum? mine does …will it turn out the same?

    • Jo pitluck says:

      Thanks for the recipe. I am not Gluten intolerant. In fact I am a great baker. My husband has Celiac so I need to look for recipes like this. I grew up in a kitchen and have little knowledge of how to do things GF. So humbug to that meanie.

  22. Umm, how much oil for frying?

  23. Phyllis says:

    Thank you! My first attempt at country fried steak, period! It turned out very good!

  24. Thank you!! GF AND DF!!! I think I can do this!!

  25. Just made this tonight, I did add a little bit of GF bread crumbs to your recipe. My husbands favorite meal is Country Fried Steak, Rice & Lima beans. Since I’m GF he is kind enough to eat what I eat “At Home” and he really liked tonight’s dinner. I have a few GF cookbooks and CF Steak is not in any of them, so thank you for this recipe. PS.. So sorry you have to put up with the negative folks. I don’t understand why they are even on your website if they don’t need the help. God bless!!

  26. I’ve been missing chicken fried steak since i went gluten free. i tried it once before and it was not a winner. I added salt and garlic to the flour and salt to the gravy. Whole family loved it! I have requests for more and takers of seconds from those that never take them. Thank you so much for a great, easy to follow, recipe!

  27. Hi! My favourite meal to order at a local restaurant is Country Fried Steak… Then I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and couldn’t have it. 🙁 I’m really happy to have found this easy to make GF recipe, thank you! 🙂 Two questions: what are “cubed steaks”? I haven’t heard of them; if I can’t find cubed steaks, what would be a good substitute? God bless you. From a Canadian with American heritage, who loves down-home cooking.
