Country Fried Steak with Mushroom Gravy


Recently I was admiring the blog of a friend, Grannyloohoo. Grumpy was sitting there with me on the couch admiring her peach pie on her new blog that she had posted. I went in to make a comment on her pie and Grumpy tells me, make sure you tell her it looks “scrumpdillyumptious!” Then he proceeded to tell me I needed to make something “scrumpdillyumptious” myself. I looked at him and said, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” I mean, the thoughts going through my head were, what is wrong with you? LOL. I’ve been cooking my behind off lately! So I said, just what is scrumpdillyumptious that I haven’t made lately? You see, he had to be very careful here…..if he wanted to continue eating in his future….at our home anyway! I think he got the hint because he said, he would like me to make a savory dish. LOL

So, I decided that since not so long ago he mentioned I hadn’t made contry fried steak in a long while, that I would do just that for dinner the first chance I had. I made a special stop at the grocery on my way home from work yesterday and bought some cube steak. Fortunately, that wasn’t sky rocketed in price and I was able to spend only $5 (on the meat only!) to fix his dinner. I serve this with homemade mashed potatoes (mashed with a little butter and sour cream). Here is how you can do it too:

    I never met a country fried steak that I didn’t love. But your version looks as good as those babies I enjoyed in Arkansas.

    Good job.

    This totally speaks to me. This is my kind of food. I bet Grumpy was over the moon happy to have this meal especially made for him. Great job.

    Yay, I've been out of the loop for a while & I've finally caught up with ALL of your posts. Sorry for the absence. You're such a dear & I missed you.

    Love it! Your Grumpy is a riot! Scrumpdillyumptious, I’m adding that one to my vocab! I just have to remember how to spell it.

    Country Fried Steak with Cream Gravy and mashed potatoes was always a popular menu item on our rotation specials menu. Sold out every time too!

    This Cooking Light version looks like a very good way to enjoy the same with a healthier bent!

    Bon appetit!
