Chicken Fried Steak

About Dish

It seems logical that the southwest’s favorite comfort food, chicken-fried steak, traces its heritage back to central European immigrant cooks who found themselves without the fixin’s for a fine, tender cut of veal to make wiener schnitzel. Instead, they took a hunk of cow and beat the chaw out of it, then fried it up like southern-style chicken and served it with pan-dripping peppered milk gravy and mashed potatoes. Beware, though: while chicken fried steak can be a taste of tender heaven, especially along old Route 66 in Oklahoma, the roads of the west also lead to some really hideous versions.
