I just moved from Boca Raton FL and I'm craving some good Chicken Fried Steak - Any sugguestions?
There is a terrific CFS at the Route 29 Diner and their grits are not instant!
I find "cube steak" to be the best meat to use. And cooking in butter.
Should be fried in bacon or ham fat w/flour gravy and sides of green beans, biscuits and fried apples.
I'm sorry, fried okra wins over green beans.
I moved here from Oklahoma, and I haven't had a good chicken fried steak since then, other than on trips back home. My girlfriend did learn to make a good one, however.
A cheap cut of beef, usually pounded, breaded, as in fried chicken, fried, served with a white gravy with mashed potatoes. (I think if you have any more questions along this line, you might want to post them on the General Topics board.)
What is chicken fried steak...I've always wondered. Don't hate me for not knowing haha.
Try to catch GOOD EATS on FoodTV. Alton Brown (host) explains the ins and outs of real chicken fried steak in the episode called Cubing Around. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_...
Southside has a very good one. Get a breadbasket, too. It has been awhile since I've been to Elsie's, it used to smell of cigarette smoke.
The smoking section still reeks, but I've noticed fewer and fewer smokers there. The rest isn't that smoky.
Actually, IHOP does a pretty decent country fried steak, again with the white gravy. Pretty cheap, and they're two off Route 1 in VA.
South Side 815 was recommended to me - anyone tried it?
Elsie's Magic Skillet on Route 1 does a pretty good country fired steak. White gravy as well.
