    Southern Lady's Note:

    It took me many tries before I felt I had a really good Chicken Fried Steak. This fries up extra crispy, so I pour a little gravy on the plate and place steak on top. This way you get to enjoy the crispy with the gravy and your steak coating won't get soggy. Enough gravy for mashed potatoes, too! I hope you like it as much as we do.

      Thanks so much for sharing this one! I am a Yankee living in Florida & have tried to make Chicken fried steak unsuccessfully numerous times! This recipe works perfectly and impressed both my husband & in-laws who are southern born & bred! DELICIOUS!

      The steak was amazing! The grave did not turn out right for me...not sure what I did wrong - but it was very bland. :( I will keep trying on the gravy, but this steak recipe is our keeper!
