Chicken-Fried Steak for Two

"This is a slightly altered version of Chicken Fried Steak that I got out of a cookbook. It is a really good recipe for the cheaper cuts of steak, because if the steak is a little on the tough side, you can return it back to the gravy and simmer until tender."

    It would be real nice when printing to eliminate the Nutrition Information. Takes up too much paper. I would like to have a choice to include this information or not. Other sites have this option. Going to make the recipe tonight. Looks very good with good reviews.

    We don't do fried food often, especially at home since you can get that sort of food eating out. We tried this and love that it's not greasy, there's no need to make a lot of gravy, which was delicious and it's crispy. It's especially great with pork cutlets! My husband likes this kind of food more than I do but I think it will be a go to meal, with steamed veggies and mashed sweet potatoes. Yum.

    We got four sandwich steaks and prepared them according to the directions. This recipe was chosen because of the many good reviews, simplicity to make, and very basic ingredients which most all folks have in the kitchen. They were great, very tasty, and a welcome change from the same old beef recipes. Highly recommended. Laryofvt
