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.
Pull those out of the air fryer and place on a sheet pan. Keep them warm in the oven at 200F while you continue with the other two steaks.

Whisk in the xanthan gum and bring to boil for a few minutes to let it thicken.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
