OK. I guess this can be figured out. Ask for a plate for the fries. Ask for a bowl for the gravy and another bowl for the mashed potatos, and plenty of time. I would not encourage them to downsize that CFS. It looks great!!

Important How-To question!!!!!

My understanding of the term "chicken fried steak" is that it's so called since it's open-fried, just like real southern fried chicken.

My question to y'all (may I call y'all "y'all'?) is this:

Can it be a real chicken fried steak if it's cooked in a deep fryer?

Francesca, you need to learn when to use y'all and all y'all.

All y'all is the plural for of y'all. So you need to ask if all y'all mind being called y'all.

For homestyle breakfast and good old fashioned homemade pies I'm gonna go with Blue Bonnet Cafe in Marble Falls. It's a long standing tradition in the area - long standing in line to get in, in addition to opening in 1929.

No, deep fried is nothing less than belong boiled in oil.

Proper CFS is fried in a cast iron skillet. Preferably in lard or rendered beef fat. Crisco (solid from a can) can be substituted.

White's Kitchen in Livingston made the best I ever ate, but that was many years ago. Don't know if its still there.

Smoked pork necks are required. I think they make you sign an affidavit before leaving the with your bean purchase at most stores.

And real chili does not have beans in any form or tomatoes. Last weekend we cooked two big pots of real chili and put them in the freezer in single servings.

I should get on here more often. All the points of how un-Texas that was were covered before I got here. Chicken and waffles, IIRC, originated in Georgia, but they sell that a lot here in the Orlando area.

Before I left home, my Daddy gave me what he considered to be his most important piece of advice - "never eat chicken fried steak north of the Red (river) or east of the Sabine". I am sorry to say that I failed to heed his advice at times, and sorrier still to have to admit that he was a wise man in that regard.
