That Chicken Fried Steak Stuff...

Mr. W. | Nov 3, 1999 09:36 AM

At our cafeteria this morning, they served something called chicken fried steak, served over a biscut with a peppered creamy gravy. Because of the recent attention paid to this Southern delicacy, I ordered some. This is the worst junk food known to me.
A slice of shoe leather, dipped in crumbs, deep fried until dark, served on a yeasty, doughy slab of flour, topped with non-descript, cream of cream fat, dotted with pepper, yuck. Whatever the posters here discribed, this was not the same animal.
In fact, I'm not sure that our chicken fried steak ever was an animal at all.

NEVER AGAIN>>>>
