Episode Summary

For the full recipe go to: The thing about chicken fried steak is that, unlike other breaded meat things such as wiener schnitzle which uses veal, CFS is traditionally made with the absolute worst cut of meat you can buy. It's called "cube steak" and what it is, is any piece of meat that's been run through a mechanical tenderizer, giving it a recognizable "cubed" appearance, like it's been punched a bunch with tiny square mallets, which of course, it has. Cube steak is sometimes made from round steak, but often is made from any sorta leftover cuts the butcher has. It's also called "minute steak". It's also often gristly and tough. Unpleasant, in other words. To get around that unpleasantness, I use thin round steaks and tenderize them myself with a mallet. That way, I know exactly what cut of beef I'm buying and I get the added bonus, if you will, of pounding it myself. Which I think is kinda fun. If you're not into that, your butcher should be able to auto-tenderize any cut of beef you want to buy. Although I still recommend sticking with something fairly inexpensive like round steak since we're going to be breading and frying it until it's medium-well or well-done, anyway.
