I make this about once a month. I wish I could get the coating to stay on the meat better.

I rated this three stars b/c I think it would be better with cube steak. The gravy was good though!

My husband and I both love country fried steak. This recipe was delicious and easy and is now one of our favorites.

I will use cube steak next time, breading didn't stay on meat but there is a trick to it...google how and gravy was wonderful, just make sure you get all the lumps out or it won't taste good! I learned how to make gravy years ago, pretty easy. Very tasty recipe!

I cut the recipe to two servings. I had trouble getting the breading to stick to the meat. It wound up stuck to the pan. The gravy was good.

The steak was very good - the gravy didn't work for me tho. Got to try that again...
