Chislic

Chislic is one of the only foods that is exclusive to my home state of South Dakota.  However, you will find it in just about every restaurant in South Dakota.  I hope that this recipe finds those of you that are out of state and that you can enjoy this delicious dish.

Chislic is simply deep fried steak.  I was taught to make it by cubing up the steak and seasoning it with Monterey steak seasoning.  You then allow the seasoned meat to sit overnight in your refrigerator.  If you don’t have that kind of time, you can let the meat sit for a couple hours.  I’m sure it would work ok if you just cooked it right away, but you really want the seasoning to seep into the meat.

I have seen a variety of steak and cuts around the area.  Sometimes the steak is thick chunks with a little pink in the middle.  Other times it is small chunks that are well done.

The local pubs serve this with what they call “frickle sauce”.  Frickles are deep fried pickles.  Frickle Sauce is a combination or ranch, parmesan cheese and chipotle seasoning.    In this recipe, I used some of my BBQ rub in the sauce because I was out of chipotle seasoning. It was fantastic and will probably experiment with it more.

While traditionally you deep fry the steak, I have also had very good luck air frying it in my Ninja Air Fryer.
