All good things come to those who wait and when you’re feeling nostalgic or need to eat your emotions this little plate of happiness will fit the bill. I’ve heard some people say they don’t like Chicken Fried Steak.
I don’t know who those people are.
They’re probably not from Texas.
They’re probably the same people who don’t like gravy.I know, but I’ve heard rumors they do exist. Chicken Fried Steak is not some throwaway dish to whip up with whatever cheap cut of meat you have sitting around. It is a classic because, if executed well, it hits all the culinary bells: crunch and chew and, oh my, the side dishes (it’s practically Thanksgiving)! The good news is you are here. The better news is this recipe does execute well, nay perfectly! It’s a delicious dish worth the extra time and effort.
