Chicken Fried Steak

OMG, it's just Heavenly.  It's steak, and it's fried up like chicken, and it's gravy and mashed potatoes and a vegetable (at this point, who bloody cares what kind???)

So anyway, this is a good "last minute" meal for those who are sick to death of the rush hour "stopping at the store".  Gag 5:00, especially on a Friday night, who wants to stop at the store?

So you take your cube steaks, and cut them in half.  Dredge them in the flour thing... good flour, good seasoning, you know the routine (if not, send me a message) and then dip it all into a liquid mix (buttermilk, tobasco, salt, pepper) and then dredge it back in the flour.  Fry it up real good on both sides, then put it into a pan and keep it warm.  Here, we're blessed to have a proofing tray.  And let me tell you, that proofing tray stove came after decades of having the minimal cooking apparatus.  And it's in a kitchen that is 1960's (un)chic.  So I'm not gloating!!!  Otherwise, just shove it into the oven.  That's the Haney truth.

Meanwhile, boil up some peeled potatoes, and mash them good.

Now, in that skillet with all the browned goodness, mix up your goodness of milk and flour (gluten-free, if you are so disposed) and stir it into that skillet of browned goodness.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...does it get any better than this?

Maybe it does, but this is as good as it gets, Haney Style.
