Country Fried Steak Dinner

5 years ago

This is what we just got finished eating for dinner. I had been wanting to make this for a while. Let me just say, NO, this is NOT the most healthy way of cooking, but every once in a while it is too good to resist. Good old southern home cooked meals are SUCH a comfort food.

What this is, is country fried steak with green beans, biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy to go over everything but the green beans. Why I say it isn`t the healthiest way of cooking is because the meat is fried in bacon fat (man it adds a lot of delicious flavor, though!) and then the gravy is made using that same grease.

What I did is season 4 cube steaks with salt and pepper (go a bit heavy with the pepper) and then double bread them in a mixture of flour, seasoned with salt and pepper and a beat egg. That, then, goes into a pan with heated up, reserved bacon fat. (When I make bacon I ALWAYS pour the extra grease into a mug and then put that into my fridge to keep to make gravy later or to cook in. This is very normal to do and how women used to get their greases to cook with. I grew up seeing my mom always do this. We always had a mug of bacon fat in the fridge on reserve). The meat is cooked for about 3 minutes on each side. Then you take flour and put it into the pan you just finished cooking the meat in. This is to make the gravy. You cook it for a few minutes, stirring constantly, to get rid of the raw flour taste. Then go ahead and season with a bit of salt and quite a bit of pepper. KEEP STIRRING! Add in your milk and stir until it is creamy, yet thick. I cannot give you measurements as this is a kind of gravy I have been making on my own (and helping my mother to make when I was young) for ages and have always eyeballed everything, just as my mom would do. Now that gravy can be poured over your biscuits, country fried steak, and the mashed potatoes.

For my green beans, I just cook them in a tiny bit of water and season them with salt, pepper, veggie seasoning, garlic, onion, and chicken bullion. It sounds like a lot but it really makes AMAZING tasting green beans.
