1. Combine marinade ingredients in bowl. Mix until combined. Place chops into a shallow dish. Add marinade and let marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Flip the chops occasionally.
2. Drain marinade.
3. Prepare your breading station. In a shallow bowl, add almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Mix and let rest for 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce. For the breading, combine flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne in another bowl. In a third bowl, add Ritz cracker crumbs.
4. Dip each chop into the buttermilk, then flour mixture, then buttermilk and back into Ritz crumbs.
5. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet. Once hot, add 2-3 chops depending on the size of your pan. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 5 minutes, flip, and fry for another 5 minutes. Fry until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to drain.
6. Reserve 1/4 cup frying oil for the sweet and spicy sauce. Combine frying oil with paprika, brown sugar, and garlic. Mix well.
7. Make your sandwich - place country fried steak on bun, spread sweet and spicy sauce on top bun, and top steak with lettuce and dill pickles.
