Country-Fried Steak with Mushroom Gravy

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke; Food Kellie Gerber Kelley

You might know country fried steak as chicken fried steak, depending on where you live. We call for cubed steak, but you can buy regular sirloin steak and pound it with a rolling pin. For the mashed potatoes, you can't beat the frozen variety for speed.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 steak, about 1/3 cup gravy, and about 1 cup mashed potatoes)
