Quick Chicken-Fried Steak With Pan Gravy

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

This is one of the many main dishes I ate growing up. It would either be beef steak or venison steak.

Made this for dinner tonight, along with a potato & onion dish. We really enjoyed this. Hubby has been hounding me for cube steaks, so I tried this. So very glad I did. I followed exactly, but I was tempted to add a splash of "Kitchen Bouquet" to the gravy for color & extra flavor, but I didn't. The real way to have this is with the light colored gravy. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Suitcase Gourmets / Culinary Quest 2014
