Well, maybe in Texas but in the true south, if you fried steak and then cooked it in gravy for 2 hours and called it chicken fried steak you'd get tarred and feathered and run out of town. Chicken fried steak in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, southern N. Carolina, S. Carolina (states where I have family/friends) is minute/cube steak breaded, fried just long enough to cook (don't want to overcook and have shoe leather) and served with white gravy made from pan drippings, flour, milk on top. No braising, fry and done.
Minute/cube steak is kind of like squid for those that haven't used it. Either cook it for just a few minutes or a couple of hours. Hence the name "minute" steak.
