Someone wants a recipe from ME???

Snort, I'm not good in the kitchen. If you knew me in person, you'd chuckle about asking me for a recipe. ;-) (But my CFS is really good.)

I'm in the north so I call it Chicken-Fried. I know others call it country-fried.

Chicken Fried Steak

buy 4 cubed steaks at the grocery store
buy a box of cracker meal
3 eggs
salt and pepper

I use an old electric skillet that I bought when I was 21 at a garage sale for $1. I pour a bunch of olive oil in, set it to 380. (I couldn't do this on a stove to save my life.)

Meanwhile, I get out three eggs, crack them (and pull the shells out of the bowl because I am kitchen challenged) and pour in milk. Mix well. I don't measure the milk -- I just pour some in. Thick and eggy is how I like it.

I rinse my cube steaks off in water (I'm weird) then I dip them in the egg batter, then I dip them in the cracker meal, flip and push hard to really get the cracker meal stuck on. Throw them in the frying pan, and when it feels right (this is the only thing I have a feel for) flip them.

Meanwhile, open a packet of "just add water" country gravy and get that going on the stove. Also start heating your choice of canned or frozen of veggies.

Top it off with some instant mashed potatoes and you've got a yummy, high-fat, un-nutritious meal!

There, that's my recipe. Seriously, this is the only meal I fry.

I do cook -- I'm trying to be funny here -- but I don't like to. I think in a previous life I was very rich and had servants and I haven't adjusted in this life. lol (Or else I'm just lazy. I don't mind doing dishes, though.)

Sounds yummy! I'll give it a try next week and let you know how it turns out. But what is cracker meal????

Peace, BridgetJ

Ok. Bought the cube steaks today. Still need to know what cracker meal is. I'm planning to fix it Wednesday!

Peace, BridgetJ

Cracker meal can be found in the spice aisle at my grocery store. It's just ground up crackers. It's much easier than buying a box of crackers and grinding them yourself.

I hope you enjoy. This is my family's all-time favorite meal -- that doesn't come from a restaurant. lol
