A few weeks ago after a particularly long Saturday at a swim meet, I decided to make a ‘Big Manly Dinner’ when we got home. My son had swam his A#! off (no better term here, sorry ???? and I thought he deserved a nice, big meal.
I had something in mind to make, but I didn’t want to stop by the store on the way home. I knew I had the makings for some kind of cubed steak, mushroom and mashed potato creation, and just the perfect recipe to use.
Healthier Country Fried Steak
This recipe is adapted from one I found in Cooking Light magazine many, many years ago. They reprinted it in their Best Of 2003 cookbook, but it had changed a bit. Over the years, I have made a few tweaks here and there, and now I am pretty happy with the healthier steak dinner recipe.
I call this Country Fried Steak but, depending on where you live, you may choose to call it Chicken Fried Steak. Different name…same delicious meal. ????

I place a dollop of potatoes onto each plate, followed by a steak, then a generous ladle of gravy on top.
I think I made the tween son happy with this ‘manly’ meal. ????
