The origin of chicken-fried steak—also known as country-fried steak or pan-fried steak—is debatable. ...
Other food historians have stated that recipes for batter-fried steaks appeared in Southern cookbooks as far back as the early 1800s.
Another theory claims that Jimmy Don Perkins, a short-order cook in a cafe in Lamesa, Texas, invented the dish by accident in 1911. According to the legend, Jimmy Don mistook two separate orders, one for chicken and one for fried steak, for one strange request and chicken-fried steak was born. In Texas, Pig Stand restaurants (the first opened in Dallas in 1921) took credit for the creation of the chicken-fried steak sandwich.

She used fresh vegetables cut-ins but the basic mix was a packaged tube of dried mushrooms and the beef .At 68 yrs. old I'd like to tell you millennials still at home, cherish every moment!
