    Nothing better than chicken fried steak and gravy on a cold winter day! This was a really nice version - loved the saltines as a crust. The gravy was good over the steak and mashed potatoes. Thanks breezermom for another keeper. Made for Potluck Tag.
    This is really good! I made as is with three large steaks and it was the perfect amount. I did simmer the meat for about 25 minutes and they did get a little soggy, but since they were bigger I wanted to make sure they were cooked through. The cracker crumbs made it! I loved the saltiness from them. The gravy was flavorful, easy to make and the perfect amount to cover the three steaks with some extra for the potatoes. Served with recipe#410503 and recipe#314192. Made for 1-2-3-Hits.

    This is one of my husband's favorite dishes, and he really loved this version. I did not simmer the meat for more than a couple of minutes after browning, because I was afraid it would get soggy, but it didn't really need more cooking. The cracker crumbs make a nice crust. I served this with biscuits, and the gravy was excellent over both the biscuits and the meat. Thanks for posting!
