No Southerner would mix their flour with milk, then add it to the drippings and I can't believe, without going through my cookbooks from SL, that this was the original published recipe. When you heat up the drippings, THEN add only the flour and cook in the drippings for five or so. One must cook the flour before adding the liquid. That's why so many here hate the gravy. It makes all the difference in the world.Read More
Made this several times for family and for my book & dinner club. Also subbed chicken breasts (pounded to uniform thickness) to make CFChicken. Gravy is delicious, and I'm sure the peanut oil and drippings are what makes the difference. My favorite skillet for making this is a huge cast iron one I bought at Academy Sports.
First time making & the steak was delish. The gravy on the other hand was not. Don't know what I did wrong, this is not rocket science! Gravy wouldn't thicken, had to add more flour mixed with a little milk. It turned out sweet in spite of adding quite a bit of salt. Will be making the steak again, but looking for another gravy recipe.Read More

Excellent Recipe... and pretty easy to make. I made (Actually my husband made it) it the second time on Super Bowl Sunday but instead of using full chicken breast we made chicken fingers.... What was nice about the chicken fingers is you didnt have to use as much oil for this... This is a must try recipe...Read More
