That's the beauty of cooking ITK - there is no "right" way - only the way we like it! OK, I guess there can be a WRONG way for some things.

Hugs to you ITK!

Some people I know (in SC) distinguish between the two. If it has white gravy they call it chicken fried steak, and if it has brown gravy they call it country fried steak. In California I had never heard it called anything but chicken fried steak.

I love this post. I just need to read back through it, is all....
I had Mama's recipe bookmarked from this morning, picked up some cube steaks this afternoon when I was in town (made while I waited), and am all set to make chicken fried steak tonight! I just need to find a different recipe for the dredging..... No self rising flour and no baking powder to make my own self rising flour.....
But that won't stop me.

Nah, but they did look at us a little funny, so we tried to keep our carnivorous ways secret!

That's okay pacanis, just use AP flour and a little more salt and dredge the steak in the flour and then in the egg wash and then back into the flour before frying.

found this for substitutions for baking powder.....
1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar OR 1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 cup buttermilk (decrease liquid in recipe by 1/2 cup)



but I've found that when you are looking for a sub for something, you are even less likely to have the things to make a sub for the original ingredient than you were to have what you actually needed!!!!!!!

I think just straight up baking soda would work just fine too for breading.
I'm regretting my burgers ALOT now.
