Country Fried Steak + Gravy


Deciding between country fried steak and french toast is always a huge dilemma when I go to a diner. Ultra savory or ultra sweet? I love both, so it depends on the place and my mood, I guess. It took some time for me to find cube steak, but I wanted to do it right no matter how impatient it made me! I asked my mom for advice before I attempted this and she said it’s easy, but it never seems to be as good as the diner. She suggested that Pioneer Woman would probably have a perfect recipe, and duh! She was correct! Definietly satisfied our diner meal craving.

But, really why should we have to choose between country fried steak and french toast? When you cook at home, you don’t really have to…steak for dinner and french toast for breakfast! Yep, that’s what I did – check out this post for those pics!

    Being Canadian, country fried steak (is that the same as chicken fried steak?) and other American specialties have always been somewhat of a mystery to me. Now at least I know what this steak is! To be honest, while I’m sure it tastes good, I’m not sure this is the recipe for me. And I can’t quite reconcile myself to that white gravy either. Seems to me I’m just going to have to travel south and get an initiation to this cuisine!

      Haha! It’s ok, I know this won’t be for everyone. It’s not the prettiest thing to look at and I don’t think I would have grown so fond of it, if it weren’t for my southern/midwestern upbringing. And yes, it’s the same as chicken fried steak. I call it by either name. You should make the trip, just to experience it! I’m sure you will come across some great things and some just plain weird things ; )
