Recipe by TheDancingCook
Lots of chicken fried steak recipes out there but it's the ranch dressing mix ingredient in this recipe that makes for a great tasting flavor in the breading. I also like this recipe because it calls for cube steak; a cut of meat that is inexpensive yet I have trouble finding recipes on s variety of ways to prepare it. Great for those busy weeknight dinners when you have to have dinner on the table in a flash. I bread my meat the night before and refrigerate, to save some time.
