Dairy Queen Dude is a chicken fried steak sandwich that’s a tasty take on your everyday hamburger. When I was in college I worked at a Dairy Queen, and I am quite familiar with how to make these sandwiches.
A chicken-fried steak sandwich is a classic living in the southern part of the country. While you can’t have a full-on chicken fried steak at any meal, you can have a Dairy Queen Dude chicken fried steak sandwich whenever you like.
By dipping steak cutlets into buttermilk and seasoned flour you get a tangy and crunchy crust that is difficult to beat.

- Preheat oil in a deep skillet to 350 degrees. Add enough oil to cover the bottom 1 1/2 inches of the pan. Prepare seasoned flour by adding flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Stir dry ingredients together with a fork. In another shallow dish mix together the buttermilk and the water. Season beef cutlets with salt and pepper.
- Dredge the meat in the flour, then the buttermilk, and then the flour. Ideally, allow the floured cutlets to rest for 10-15 minutes before cooking. Cook meat cutlets in the hot oil, flip over when the bottom has browned. When both sides are browned remove and allow cooked meat patties to drain on paper towels.
- Assemble the sandwich by placing the chicken fried steak patty on the bottom bun, then build by adding 2 sliced tomatoes, and then the lettuce. Spread mayonnaise on the top bun and place the top bun on the sandwich. Variations: You can add pickles and onions, and even a slice of cheese.
