Is it Chicken Fried Steak or Country Fried Steak? I don’t know. It doesn’t really matter. We can just call it GOOD! I’ll be honest, this meal is 50,000 calories. But, boy, is it worth it!
Any thinly sliced steak is good to use. I prefer cube steak. Cube steak is just tenderized round steak. It’s very inexpensive and works like a charm in this recipe.
I use as little oil for frying as possible. It doesn’t take a lot. Remember it’s not chicken, it’s beef. We don’t need to deep fry it at all.
SAVE THOSE DRIPPINGS! We can’t have Country Fried Steak without some good ole white gravy! Super simple to make.
This meal is southern comfort at it’s finest! If you’re really living on the edge, throw some of Momma’s biscuits on the table too!
