This is classic southern comfort food at its best. A thin cut of steak breaded and covered with grandma’s gravy is a treat that I enjoy each time I return to the south. Country Fried Steak, also known as Chicken Fried Steak, typically uses cube steak battered with a special mix of flour and spices. For my recipe, we are using a “breakfast steak”. It’s much more tender than cube steak and makes for a very tasty fried steak.
