It didn't come out like the picture. Seemed to be like fried steak instead of breaded country fried.
Oh it was sooooooo, goooood!!!!!!!
I used elk steaks for this recipe and it was fantastic! The spiciness give it a great kick and made it especialy good with game meat.
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.
I discovered this recipe about 6 months ago. it is my husband's most requested dinner and also what he wanted for his birthday!
