Delicious! Low-Fat Chicken Fried or Country Fried Steak

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

My family loves this meal & it's easy to make. It's a great tasting, low-fat dinner. Just add your favorite side dish or vegetable. This comes from the cookbook, "1,001 More Low-Fat Recipes", which has a ton of good recipes in it. You can alter the ingredients to add some of the fat back in if you don't prefer no-fat ingredients. Enjoy!

I didn't make the meat part of it because we had country fried steak from another source but my husband made the gravy to go with was very good! I will be making this again!! Thanks for sharing.

Welp, I had the same problem. I couldn't keep the coating on either. I think it would have been better if you just didn't mess with the cooking spray and used a small amount of beef broth or oil instead. Everyone knows that you can't simmer on cooking spray, right? Otherwise, everything else was great! I'll listen to my instincts more closely next time...

I'm not sure what happened, but I followed the recipe and couldn't keep the coating to stay on. The meat did come out tender but next time I will try another way. Not bad for low fat. I didn't try the gravy.
