DQ…. that’s what I like about Texas. Growing up I remember riding my bike and meeting my friends at Dairy Queen for an ice cream blizzard. Chocolate chip cookie dough, crushed butterfingers, crushed peanut butter cups and caramel turtle blizzards are my favorite. I love the way they flip them upside down to ensure you get the best ice cream cup ever.
Another DQ favorite of mine is their steak finger basket packed with delicious steak fingers, Texas toast, fries and white gravy followed by a big tall drink to wash it all down. We were traveling the other weekend throughout Texas and stopped at a DQ and while we were there I expressed to my husband about making a baked version of steak fingers. His immediate reaction to most of my meals and recipes was, ” I don’t know if that’s going to work.”
Much to his dismay I made it work and we had it for dinner this week. A couple years ago I had made baked chicken drumsticks with a crispy outer coating and I was destined to do the same with this crust. When you work with fried batter its easy to handle and you can jerk the food around but with these steak fingers you have to handle delicately to ensure the batter stays on.
So the next time your family is craving some good homemade steak fingers go for the baked version instead of the fried.
