Nothing says stick to your ribs meal like Country fried steak with gravy, real mashed potatoes and green beans cooked all day with bacon. Awww heck and just top it off with some peach cobbler then lay on the couch for a long nap. I got this recipe out of taste of home and I thought it was pretty tasty.

This was absolutly awesome! I wonder if you could put a little cayenne in the cornmeal or gravy for some zing? Loved it!

I made this on 10/15/08 for mine and SO's dinner. I did make a few changes to the recipe.The first one being, instead of the beef cubed steaks, pork was used( just a personal choice ).Second, a whole egg was used instead of just the egg white.Third, I made the gravy in the same pan to get all of those "yummy crusty" pieces left behind. To us the amount of thyme was too strong,so the next time this is made I'm cutting it down to 1/8 teaspoon. I don't think my changes affected the final outcome of this recipe. It was the gravy that sent this recipe over the top.Thanks for posting, and "Keep Smiling :)"
