“Thanks Cousen; really great. Billy Moser”
“Really good, I am so happy I understand how to make country gravy now. I sprinkled a little Knorr Beef to get it beefy, yum! Thank you for a great recipe.”
“Sooooo good!The bacon grease is what really sets it apart.I free handed the gravy as I only had milk instead of Half and Half, and I added some extra salt and pepper…..Super good and great informative directions.Thanks for a great recipe!”
“Excellent recipe for that other Southern steak – not to be confused with Chicken Fried Steak (which is more battered and cooked faster).The sirloin would give this such excellent beefy flavor, but I used cube steaks, and they were great, too.I didn’t have bacon grease or lard, so I used Crisco, and just used the left over seasoned flour for the gravy.The recipe doesn’t mention when to add the butter, so I never used it.It was delicious without it.”
