Chicken-Fried Steak for Two

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

This is a slightly altered version of Chicken Fried Steak that I got out of a cookbook. It is a really good recipe for the cheaper cuts of steak, because if the steak is a little on the tough side, you can return it back to the gravy and simmer until tender.

We don't do fried food often, especially at home since you can get that sort of food eating out. We tried this and love that it's not greasy, there's no need to make a lot of gravy, which was delicious and it's crispy. It's especially great with pork cutlets! My husband likes this kind of food more than I do but I think it will be a go to meal, with steamed veggies and mashed sweet potatoes. Yum.
