Do you cut it all or a little at a time

Cut thin slices after it has rested, plate & enjoy @ a leisurely pace.

If you cut it all up it gets cold, which negatively affects the flavor IMHO.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I've never had much interest in "real" steak, which seems basically one step removed from beef jerky. Lots and lots of chewing for a bit of umami.

Now chicken-fried steak, well, that's a tastier matter. That's eaten a bit at a time, so it can be properly enrobed in delicious cream gravy.

Make sure you ask for extra gravy from the get-go.

I suspect you've just had poor quality, overcooked, steaks... But I do agree that a good chicken fried steak is pretty darn delicious!

White gravy, NOT brown! Add extra pepper!

This. Never understood why people cut an entire steak before eating.

Cut as I eat.

Same here.

Actually, I've only seen that done twice, so assumed it was some rare abnormality, didn't know it was a thing.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Hey, anyone that puts anything but a good white gravy on chicken fried steak is either mentally defective, was raised by wolves, or European... So, it SHOULD go without saying! angel smiley

I'm confused. I don't see where anyone in this thread has ever mentioned anything but white/cream gravy.

Now the gravy on a lovely steak au poivre is brownish . . .

The only exception to this that makes sense to me is if the steak will serve multiple people.

Gravy is as bad as ketchup on a good steak.

I agree... but, it can also be a saving grace for thoroughly mediocre steak if it's a good gravy or sauce. But, to sauce/gravy a good piece of steak like a fine Ribeye, New York, or Filet? A crime against man and nature...

This. Never understood why people cut an entire steak before eating.

A 6-8oz sirloin sous vide @ 130F then seared on a +500F cast iron
'grill' pan. Rest for 5min, slice and plate on a hot serving plate with
veggies. Never experienced "cold" steak with this method.
If cooking rare, then yes you will have cold steak. Even served intact, hot
to plate a thick, 8oz sirloin will get cold before you finish it.

We’re not talking about a real steak, but chicken fried steak can be as good.

Chicken Fried Steak is NEVER a good steak. It's its own thing!

Raise it a level by making Chateaubriand with a red wine reduction. yum smiley


If it’s “just” steak, I prefer a lean cut; NY Strip, a quality sirloin etc cooked just past rare. I can tell the quality just by slicing into it. A steak knife should glide through the beef with almost NO resistance.

Hey Rolando, does the Alamo Cafe by the SAT airport still exist? They made an awesome chicken fried steak! I once flew from NOLA NAS to SAT just to have one and I'll never forget that steak.
