The country-fried steak was fantastic. It was from Emeril's book Prime Time Emeril.
He called it Country-fried Steak with White Gravy. I followed the recipe exactly, except instead of using 2 cups of milk for the gravy, I used 1 cup milk and 1 cup buttermilk. Yum.
The recipe started by directing you to cook chopped bacon until crisp, then removing the bacon to paper towels to drain. Then the breaded steak was fried in the bacon fat. (Well, it is
a pig fat thing!) The bacon was added later to the gravy.
Really, really great recipe. If you have the cookbook, you owe it to yourself to try this recipe.
