  • Meat Mallet
  • Skillet
  • Shallow bowls (for breading)


  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 24 ounces cube steaks
  • 1/4 cup ghee or avocado oil
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • In a shallow bowl, combine almond flour, Parmesan cheese, smoked paprika, sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  • In a separate bowl beat together eggs.
  • Tenderize the meat with a meat hammer, pounding until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Dip the meat into the eggs, and then coat with the almond flour mixture. Press the mixture into the meat.
  • Heat the ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat. The oil should be between 320 degrees and 340 degrees. A drop of almond flour should sizzle when it touches the oil, but not burn.
  • Add the steaks, and cook for about 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Remove from the pan and put on a rack over a baking sheet. Tent with foil to keep warm.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add beef broth, cream, garlic powder, and xanthan gum. Whisk to combine.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a simmer.
  • Reduce heat to medium low, and stir in sour cream.
  • Serve the chicken fried steak with the gravy on top.
