I made a dinner the whole family enjoyed. This is a red letter day! No “eww” or “I am not hungry.” There was a lot of complaining from the clean up but none from the dinner. What is this amazing dinner? A meal I have no recipe for, sorry. Ok, I don’t have a recipe but I can tell you how to make Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy.
Take a package of cube steaks out of the fridge. Find your flat bowls or a pie plate. In one mix two eggs and about 2 cups of milk. In the other mix about 1 1/2 cups of flour, a few teaspoons of salt and pepper. You know how salty/peppery your family likes things. Experiment. They can always salt more at the table.
Heat a skillet with a generous amount of cooking oil, crisco, or if you are the type-bacon drippings. Dredge steaks in egg/milk mixture, then in flour mixture-coating all sides. Fry up in your skillet until done-this doesn’t take very long. Flip halfway through. Take the steaks out of the pan. Scrape the pan a bit and leave the drippings in the pan. Stir in remaining flour mixture. Add a bit of milk and make a paste. Continue to add milk until thin. Cook until bubbly and thick. Serve gravy over steaks…and potatoes.
That is all there is to it. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans. In this house, some people also must have a slice of Wonder bread to go with.
