Country Fried Popcorn Bites 



2 pounds cube steak, cut into 1½ to 2 inch pieces

1 egg

½ cup milk

2 cups all purpose flour

1½ tablespoons Ky Darling seasoning

2 teaspoons of garlic powder

2 teaspoons coarse ground pepper

4 cups vegetable oil for frying


Heat oil in a deep cast iron skillet to about 350 degrees. While the oil heats,

In a medium sized bowl, add milk and egg and beat until well combined. In a pie plate or other shallow dish, combine flour, season salt and pepper until well mixed. Dredge each piece of cube steak into flour, dip in egg and milk mixture and then back into flour, coating all sides. Give each piece a little shake to remove extra flour and carefully place into hot oil. Repeat with remaining cube steak, cooking in batches. Cook each piece about 3 to 4 minutes on each side until lightly browned. They will cook quickly. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.

You may want to lower your heat slightly after the first batch, especially when using cast iron.
