Diner Monday ~ Chicken Fried Steak

Oh, I know, sounds horrific. But I have always had a morbid fascination with chicken fried steak and Diner Monday was the perfect opportunity to try it.
I used eye of round tenderised steaks, seasoned well and dredged in seasoned flour, then shallow fried. Served with mashed potatoes and vegetable medley, it was quintessential greasy spoon fare. And I will happily admit that I enjoyed it!

I whipped off a quick dessert as well (really quick ~ less than 15 minutes from start to finishing cleanup): Peanut Butter Chiffon Pie. Using a premade chocolate crumb crust helped cut some time, as well as the joy of my trusty KitchenAid mixer. The original recipes all seem to call for Cool Whip which gives me the worst stomach ache, so I used real whipped cream instead. Decadent;.

Funny, I was JUST looking at a recipe for chicken friend steak on MONDAY but decided not to go with it. I doubt I could handle the pie. Sounds downright tummy wobbly rich!

I love chicken fried steak. I just feel so guilty when I make it. As soon as I get this whole wedding thing out of the way, it will be on my menu again.

Linda, it looks great. Now you should come to Austin and try some Texas chicken fried steak. You know, just for comparison.
