chicken fried steak theory

frankfrank Posts: 13,292 AG
in Oklahoma one of the menu staples is chicken fried steak and the largest ethnic heritage group in OK is of German heritage 
it's very possible that chicken fried steak is a derivative of schnitzel 

what do you think

    I wasn't aware that chicken fried steak originated in Oklahoma, but I think you're on to something with schnitzel...yet it always seemed closer to milanesa to me.

    They serve a similar dish in the far east, but it is served dry.  I cannot recall the name.

    Is it too early for lunch?  I'm hungry now.  :)

    Last year we were on a hunting trip and we stopped in Savannah GA on our way up and had dinner at chilis, i was foaming at the mouth for their CFS but they took it off the menu.   Haven't been back since, theirs was good.   Took up the whole plate.

    Go to a Cuban restaurant and order bistec empanizado, which is palomilla (thin cut sirloin) steak marinated in lime and garlic first before breading with cracker crumbs. Good stuff. Not sure if the Germans went to Cuba though.

    That's what wiki says.

    I think that is a gross way to ruin an already bad piece of steak.

    I agree...  The similarities are great. I will do a more in depth study next week in the Black Forest.

    I love a good country fried steak, I think what they say the difference between country and chicken fried is the color of the gravy.

    We normally pound chicken cutlets super flat, bread and fry then top it with franks red hot sauce, lettuce tomato and bleu cheese on a bun.   Super good sammich right there. 

    Or you can do chicken parm with that.   I haven't had a great chicken parm sub in forever

    Tonkatsu perhaps?

    That is it.  It's made of pork in Japan.

    Had something similar but chicken in Taiwan and Hong Kong from a place called Hot Star.

    I really need to eat lunch now.  lol

    Thank you, Bryan....Mike

    That is it.  Pork and sometimes chicken.  Rarely beef.
    a good bone in fried pork chop sandwich is excellent

    I'll take a 1 1/2 " grilled bone-in pork chop over a steak any day.

    There is hardly anything better than a spatchcocked chicken fried in a large cast iron pan. Rub it with olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, onion powder, sage, turmeric, salt and pepper. Cook skin side down on medium low covered to 155 and let sit a bit. Add a little water every now and then of the pan gets dry. Use an organic chicken, they taste better and don't stink of sulfur.

    That sounds delicious. I'll add that to my recipes. Thanks. Similar amounts of each spice?

    I mix all the spices together to taste before hand, you can personalize the amounts and only rub on as much as you want. I would start with a teaspoon of each. The "gravy" in the pan is the spice mix and chicken fat. Really tasty. My 92 yo mom saves hers and mixes it with roasted veggies.

    Jaeger Schnitzel. Nuff said. 
    And no, it has nothing to do with the liquor.

    It was invented in Lamesa Texas. Tell them it wasn't and you better be leaving town,

    Chicken Fried Steak is a staple in any diner here in Texas. In Georgia I grew up eating Country Fried Steak which is similar but served with brown gravy not white. Also I don't think country fried steak has as heavy crust

    As bad as it is for you, Country Fried Steak, with a side of mashed potatoes, and a large glass of sweet tea, is as close to heaven as a man can get on earth.

    Add a side of chicken fried bacon with sausage gravy and you can die happy.

    To me it is a staple of southern diners. And I like it.

    You forgot the collards and cornbread.

    I have no idea where La Mess TX is, but according to the Texans it's Wiener Schnitzel
    And like many things Texan it made it's way to Oklahoma, but don't tell them that
