"Also known as chicken fried steak. Not to be confused with chicken. When they do chicken this way it is chicken fried chicken."

"This is by far my favorite country fried steak recipe on here! Make sure to add your spice to the gravy mix & flour people! The more pepper and paprika the better! The cube steaks turn out crispy and so tender in the middle. Yummy! Whats best is this meal is so cheap... yet very satisfying.
Thanks for sharing!"
"I created an account just so I could say thank you. This is great a great recipe. I did put some garlic and herb Mrs Dash on the meat before hand, along with a touch of salt and pepper in the gravy. I Highly recommend this to anyone."
"Very good recipe! I did add some extra seasoning to my breading and the gravy, particularly the addition of cayenne pepper on both ends. Also, a boatload more black pepper and dash of salt in the gravy plus the secret touch- A dash of nutmeg. Delicious!"
"Loved it...one of my favorite dishes growing up. Made with Recipe #274546 and Recipe #83524. Even my picky eater gobbled it up! No problems getting the coating to stick and it fried up wonderfully (used sunflower oil to fry). I prefer making this with saltine crackers, but I didn't have any on hand. Maybe next time I would season the cube steaks before coating (for my own personal taste): I felt that the seasoning got a little "lost" somewhere in the process (everyone else in my family was content with seasoning). Thanks so much!"
"Excellent. Breading is delicious. Turned out like Cracker Barrel's in my opinion. Boyfriend loved it!"
"This CFS was delicious. The breading worked great for me. The gravy was thick and creamy. Made for Food Photo Forum."
"Not bad...I couldn't get the coating to stick either and it was a little bland. Next time I going to add some garlic or onion powder or such."
"I've made this several times since my husband always requests it. I, too, never have any oil left after frying the meat and the coating is never greasy. Perhaps it's because I use an electric skillet. We love this recipe and the gravy it produces. Note to self: cook in skillet on 325 degrees."
"I've made this recipe twice so far. The first time I didn't season the meat as much as normally would have and it turned out okay. I seasoned the flour as directed. This time I seasoned the meat the way I like it (season salt, garlic, onion powder, pepper, red pepper and worcestershire) and put paprika in the flour. I did do the dipping in the egg and flour as directed. It turned out just the way I like it! Great! Served with the gravy with onions. Thanks so much!"
"Very good, flavorful I think because I used seasoned salt in the flour along with a little garlic powder.. It did not get as crispy as I was hoping it would. Did all the dipping as directed and fried on medium heat, higher I think it would of made it burn not make it crisper"
"Not sure what the others did wrong but it came out great for me. The steak is meant to be eaten with the gravy...,not quite sure if peoople are using it or not. Either way thanks for sharing I have saved this in my cookbook as I plan to make over and over."
"This recipe turned out bland, and I was disappointed because the coating slid off during cooking. I never added the extra 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper because it wasn't clear when to do so and I forgot. That might have helped, but I am not convinced. I'm sorry, but I will need to keep looking for a more flavorful recipe."
"Just okay. I was looking for a little more zing."
"We loved it..although it was messy to make cause my cube steak kept falling apart. My kids liked it because it was not too spicy for them like some country fried steak."
"Very best CFS I've made yet! I did add seasoning salt to my gravy and steaks, but that's about the only change. Delicious, you have to try it!"
"Not the best country fried steak."
"Used this recipe to compliment 2009 New Years Dinner. Georgia style. Used Peppered Season All Seasoning salt instead of salt, pepper and paprika. Added a little zing. Wonderful Recipe!!! My family and I thank you."
"Made these for dinner tonight and they were a hit. Spice in the flour is perfect! We will make these again."
"Thanks for the wonderful recipe! I cooked it this morning, my roommate and I loved it!"
"Very very good. Thank you for sharing!"
