Chicken-fried Steak

    Very good. We didn't have crackers so we just used salt/pepper, dipped in egg, rolled in flour. Just like another cook, I put some oil in the pan so it browned. Also, for the gravy, I did just milk and flour in the same pan as the steak was cooked.

    This was a great, light version of an old favorite. I did add some oil in the pan to keep the crackers from burning. And the cream gravy was very salty -- next time, I'll be sure to get the low-sodium base.

    Sooooooooooo good! After cooking for 50 yrs I have never ventured to make something so iconic to the South, and yet so simple. It was delicous! I could not believe how easy/tasty the cream gravy was, and the use of crushed saltines added a taste dimention to usually ordinary tasting breading. I did use 2 eggs instead of egg substitute to dip. I served cheese grits and sliced fresh tomatoes with this and it took me away to Anna Maria Island, FL! Thanks! Will definitely make again!

    Very good but used olive oil to fry otherwise too dry. I also used 3 regular eggs and more crackers than recipe called for although I made 7 steaks instead of 6. The cream gravy was awesome and so easy to make. The only change I made was to use half & half instead of milk because it was all I had in the frig. Also needed to add alittle water to thin. Will definitely make again!

    I made this recipe tonight for my family, with my sister visiting. We all thought it was fantastic. The only change I made to the recipe was to add 6 tsps of canola oil, 1 tsp per serving. We will definitely make this again!

    I love this recipe, it's fantastic for what it is. My hubby used to order this at restaurants, but now doesn't because he can get it better at home - a win! I serve with Bob Evans original mashed potatoes (often found near the deli or the lunch meat), white shoe-peg corn, and white country style gravy. I do not use any extra oil - it does great as written.
