Reviews for Chicken-Fried Steak
"This is a good, basic recipe, almost sure to succeed.You could add a half-teaspoon of onion powder to the flour for more sweetness and complexity, if you like, but I've always felt salt and pepper are all beef need."
"Nice coating, tender steak, delicious gravy! The only change I would make is to add some seasoned salt to the coating . I would also add some to the gravy."
"These were good but my husband and I prefer a bit more flavor. I amp'd it up by adding seasoned salt to the flour mixture and to the gravy. I also doubled the amount of black pepper. The round steak was fine if pounded thin but we prefer using cube steak."
"I made this on the fly and was very happy with the flavor. I added some garlic salt to the flour mixture and the gravy...yummy! I will try cube steak next time, as my round steaks were a little tough. I will surely make again!"
"I found both the steak and the gravy too bland. I even tried to spice it up but I'm not an expreienced enoug cook to make that kind of adjustment. I'll try a spicier recipe next time."
