Is it Chicken Fried Steak or Country Fried Steak?
Turns out they are the same thing! When visited Louisana I had this in a little diner and it was delicious so we decided to have it for dinner again.
But instead of country fried steak on the menu, there was a chicken fried steak. After asking about it we discovered it's the same thing and tastes delicious whatever it's called. It's not healthy and it's delicious served with some mashed potatoes or rice and green beans.
When we got home we had to make this country fried steak with bread crumbs and a more authentic US gravy.
We know time is of the essence and to be honest who has time on a weeknight to make their own gravy from scratch!
So this gravy uses the frying oil, a packet of our favorite sausage gravy, and some evaporated milk to get the best tasting country gravy for your battered steak in minutes! It really is the easiest country fried steak with sausage gravy recipe I've tried.
Why not make some dinner rolls in the bread machine to go as a side for this family meal?
