It's been a long time since I posted any food pics or recipes hasn't it! I realized that tonight as I was making dinner. So here we go.

I was inspired this afternoon by Pioneer Woman's blog for fried round steak. If you're not GF this is a good recipe for you, but if you're like me and can't have all purpose four it might not be the best one for you so I decided to work on one for myself tonight. And boy it was Mmmm good!

So here's how it goes...

Season your cube steak. I used salt, pepper and onion powder, but use what you like best. Then dredge your cubed steak ing your fave all purpose GF flour. I like the mix over at Hey, that tastes good! You may have to do this a couple of times don't worry the more flour the crunchier it tastes.

Make sure that the skillet you use is nice and hot and has lots and lots of butter in it! Hey, I never said that this was a healthy meal, I just said it was good. Then plop the steaks in the pan and fry it up about 4 min on each side gets it nice and golden brown. Yummy!!!

While my steak was cooking I also had a bag of peas cooking up in the microwave and had already started some potatoes up in the oven ahead of time. I'm one of those people that likes everything done at the same time and planning is the key there. So if you want to do the same make sure that you start it all when needed so that your food finishes up within the same time.
After my steaks were done frying, and my peas were done heating up, and my potatoes were nice and golden crispy this was what I had! Dinner!!!

I was a little worried after I offered to make my roommate one, just because she's from Texas and knows her country steak, but this garnered two enthuastic thumbs up from her as she enjoyed her dinner. I wish I had thought ahead to making the drippings into gravy, but I've never really been good at making pan gravy so it was no major loss, but my steak was nice & crispy, just like I like it.

I really love cooking for people this will definitely be a keeper for my family one day, prolly for a Sunday afternoon or evening when some comefort food is needed. I hope all you GF friends enjoy it too. Thanks Ree for the inspiration!

This looks really good except for the cooked peas. Sorry, but I prefer them fresh. My sister makes really good pan gravy with pan drippings, flour, and evaporated milk. Yummy! Great photos.

@ Anonymous I like fresh peas too, but I just do with what I have time for. One of these days I'll figure out how to make so good gravy
