Whether its called country fried steak, smothered steak, or chicken fried steak, one thing is certain. Southerners have grown up loving this cast iron comfort beef dish. It's a supper menu we all like, deliciously crisp and tender chicken fried steak, green beans, mashed potatoes and of course, creamy country gravy.
It's a dish that is popular in the South and Midwest. This comfort food refers to a thin, inexpensive cut of steak that has been tenderized by pounding. It's dipped into a batter of milk, egg, and seasoned flour, then deep fried like chicken until crisp, and served with a rich and creamy seasoned country gravy. This dish is definitely not suitable for a low fat diet. I don't see too many people worrying about it, they just don't eat it every day though I could.
