This is the best recipe for country fried steak. The only thing I do different is I use my electric fry pan and a lot less oil. I also halve the gravy. Thank You for posting.

Good meat! I did something wrong and the gravy was bad- burned flavor. I may have had the heat too high in the pan when frying. I accidentally added crushed red pepper to the breading so I just added ground red pepper, too and it was fine. I'll try this again with a thermometer because of the gravy issue.

I liked it a lot and so did my family, BUT I am one for a lot of flavor and the gravy was BLAND so I think I will try to make my gravy with spicy sausage to give it a kick. But other than that it was delightful! :) and the dish was easy to make.... Thank you!

Loved the crunch on the meat. I did chicken as well as steak. I added fresh mushrooms and sauteed before thickening. Wasn't crazy about the paste flavor of the gravy so I added a package of Lipton dry Onion soup mix and made it taste much better. Will make this again.

This is the BEST in comfort food! I use this recipe all the time and have passed it on to everyone who tries it! I use veg oil or whatever I have on hand and a non-stick pan works just as well. I usually double the recipe for yummy leftovers!

This was ok. I think I shouldn't have added the salt, mine was a bit salty and I don't know if it was the peanut oil or what but it had a different taste. I thought it tasted ok, dh didn't like it. Told me to go back to my way. Thanks anyway.

This is an outstanding recipe. I am from the south and have made country fried steak or chicken fried steak for years but my family loves this recipe the best. It taste the most like my mother's who was a true Southern Belle.

I have fixed country fried steak for years but decided to try it this way. I used venison cube steaks and it was absolutely delicious! My family wished I had cooked more!

I have made this for years and it is very good.I omit the salt because the crackers have salt.
