I looked at this and knew, just knew, it could not be good for me. However, I had never had chicken fried steak (the name confused me and turned me off). I decided to be brave and try it.
Unfortunately, I only ate 1/3 of a serving, because I would like to be able to still wear my clothes. My husband ate an enormous amount and said it was his most favorite thing I have ever made him. So, I responded, “Happy Birthday, honey.” His birthday was almost three months ago. I never got around to cooking him a meal, because we took a trip to Seattle to celebrate.
I will only be making this for him once a year. It is so fattening. It is so much work. I had no idea what I had gotten myself into. The meal was over and I was faced with a mountain of dishes. I think it was good. I am not a huge gravy fan…My husband is shaking his head in shame.
If you love gravy, you will love this.
I followed The Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Fried Steak recipe exactly.
I used my own mashed potato recipe.
Here are the pictures of the process I went through:
Have you ever had chicken fried steak? What do you think? Have you made it? Did you think the dirty dishes were worth it?
