  Country Fried Steak!
Ahhh yes! The photo above says it all doesn't it-
Country Fried Steak is a favorite hearty breakfast in the Southern United States and is enjoyed for supper time too. Many times the steak is smothered with a breakfast gravy such as sausage gravy or a thick peppered milk gravy. You can't have steak without homefries, discuits and grits either!

Country Fried Steak is also popular eaten as a regular dinner meal with veggies and mashed potatoes. Put a bit of hot sauce on the steak and your in heaven.

What is Country Fried Steak?
Chicken fried steak (also known as country fried steak) is a piece of beef steak (tenderized cube steak) coated with seasoned flour and pan fried. It is associated with Southern U.S. cuisine and hospitality. Its name is likely due to chicken fried steak's similarity in preparation to fried chicken, though the dish is also similar to the classic Viennese dish Wiener Schnitzel, a tenderized veal cutlet, coated with flour, eggs and breadcrumbs and fried.

The precise origins of the dish are unclear but many sources attribute its development to German and Austrian immigrants to Texas in the nineteenth century who brought recipes for Wiener Schnitzel from Europe to the USA. Lamesa, the seat of Dawson County on the Texas South Plains, claims to be the birthplace of chicken fried steak, as does Bandera, Texas.

Chicken fried steak is among numerous popular dishes which make up the official state meal of Oklahoma.

Variants are common, with chicken fried chicken having appeared on many menus substituting a boneless chicken breast for the steak. The dish known as "chicken fried chicken" differs from the dish known as "fried chicken" because the meat has been removed from the bones, but the breading process is similar. Another variant is steak fried chicken.

Boneless pork chops, usually center cut, are served in this manner, as well as beef cutlet (tenderized round steak), or boneless chicken breasts.

Note that although the dish described here is the most common definition of "Country fried steak," some regions of the United States use this term to refer to what in other regions would be called chicken fried chicken (or at least something similar depending on how one precisely defines the recipes). Typically, in Texas, chicken fried steak is served with traditional peppered milk gravy.

In some areas, Country Steak may refer to Salisbury steak, a chopped beef patty in brown gravy.
