    I tried this not knowing what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised! Dipping the steak in the flour first, then the egg and back in the flower really holds it to the meat. I can't wait to make this again.

    I followed the recipe exactly and it worked out perfect. I don't usually make gravy like a cream sauce but it was good! Making rice was one step less than mashing potatoes and at 6:30 p.m. eating sooner than later was the goal.

    The rest of my comment...keep rice hot in double boiler and cook green beans while cooking steak. If you want a real Southern meal, make MASHED POTATOES with just butter - no milk and fry the steak in bacon drippings.Also home made or Pillsbury frozen biscuits to "sop" the gravy (have never put gravy over potatos in all my 66 years)...try it this way...it's whisker lickin' good!!! Also use round steak.

    Was raised on this meal, with mashed potatoes instead of rice, and gravy browned well and made with water. the flavor is so much better with water. Now I like to use brown rice, it's healthier

    i have made cks all my life...it is easy once you get used to it. it is one of my family's favorite meals. i do like to make whipped potatoes with my cfs. portion control is the cue for ww. also, maybe once in a blue moon. drain the cfs well with papertowels. only one side. the top should be crispy. these are just my tilps...i am sure that martha has many more than me. i enjoy her site and ideas and recipes so very much!

    a minute steak is a cut of steak that has been pounded so thin it takes only minutes to cook. some people like this steak to make cfs. i like to use round steak. cut all the fat off and take the steak and cut against the grain into serving size pieces.

    if you take the steak...that has been fried and put in to be warmed...it might get soggy. i let it set to the side and allow the hot gravy to warm up the crispy crust on the steak. the beans sound great. why not...make the beans and then make the gravy? set the grease aside and when the beans are done...warm the grease back up and make the gravy? then, the gravy is really hot for the steak, rice and the little bit that drips on the beans. :-)
