Plating idea for chicken fried steak

Hi all,

I'm planning a dinner for tonight that consists of chicken fried steak with white gravy, creamy corn and sauted turnip greens. I'm trying to find a plating idea online (by looking at google images) but could hardly find any good looking dishes! Maybe the chicken fried steak is not supposed to look good. It's hard because the meat is a big flat piece that doesn't seem to fit anywhere on the plate.

Anyone has good suggestions on how to plate it nicely?

Thanks!

In Texas CFS is supposed to hang off the plate on 3 sides and the gravy run-off should pool around the taters.

Spoken like a true Texan, .40 !

Hyperion, with monotone colors like that, the only thing you can do is sprinkle chopped parsley over the top.
I wouldn't worry too much as long as the food is spectacular, you're good.

I'm trying to post a detailed recipe and introduction to this type of dish on a chinese forum, those people have very very picky eyes and everything must be pretty and otherwise they'll start trolling. very difficult :/

It is beautiful, but I prefer my cream gravy on the side. It would be a shame for that gorgeous crunchy crust were to get soggy.

That's what I was thinking when I looked at that beautiful, hungry-making photo.

Is chicken fried steak a beef or a chicken dish?
