HOW TO MAKE KETO CHICKEN FRIED STEAK WITH MUSHROOM GRAVY

Prepare the dredge (coating) station:

In a shallow bowl, combine the crushed pork rinds, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Stir to combine.

Now add the beaten eggs in another shallow bowl.

Now you can dredge the minute steaks.

First coat them in the egg then coat them with the pork rind mixture.

Do this for each minute steak and set aside.

If air frying, spray the inside of the air fryer basket with cooking spray.

Place two minute steaks in the air fryer and cook at 400F for 15 minutes.  Be sure to flip halfway through the cooking time for even browning.

While the steaks are cooking you can start making the mushroom gravy.

In a large skillet over medium heat cook the mushrooms in the butter until the mushrooms are soft.

This should take about 5 to 8 minutes.

Now that your mushrooms are soft. Add in the heavy cream and the beef broth.

Whisk in the xanthan gum and bring to boil for a few minutes to let it thicken.
