Chicken-Fried Cubed Steaks Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here in the Ozarks, country-fried steak is a staple. These are wonderful served with mashed potatoes and some freshly baked rolls. I developed the recipe to meet the spicy tastes of my family—our six children range from 26 to 14.—Toni Holcomb, Rogersville, Missouri

MY REVIEW

"frying the steaks in oil on high heat was a big mistake, they burned quickly. Maybe it should be heated up, but then turn down to low before putting the steak in. I had a real mess."
