.40, what does a a Texan consider a minute steak?
Around here a minute steak is like shaved beef and used to make a sub with. We make chicken fried steak from tenderized cube steak. Cube steak has been run through the tenderizer at the store in both directions for a checkerboard, cube kind of look. Do you guys have cube steak, or is that what you call minute steak?

Cube steak = Texas minute steak. The shaved beef for philly cheese steak sandwiches is hard to find here.

Question Chicken? fried steak

For the life of me I have read this recipe and printed it. It looks like a recipe my mom used to fix when I was growing up. Why does it say "Chicken Fried Steak?" There is no chicken in it that I can see and it doesn't use chicken fat for cooking.

My mom called this steak "Country fried steak." Are they terms used interchangeably? or what?

I have fixed this and it is delicious. I have used Cube Steak and Cubed Pork Steak.. Butcher does it up for me. Delicious....
