By the way, do you know the general difference between "chicken fried" and "country fried" steak? It's mostly a regional term situation, and many folks call slightly different techniques by the same name. Others claim it's the type of gravy you prepare with it: white goes with chicken fried, and brown goes with country fried.

But legend has it the story goes like this...

Chicken fried steak is prepared similarly to fried chicken, and includes the use of an egg wash prior to frying. Country fried steak, popular among Southwest states, likely started because of the German immigrant-influenced wiener schnitzel.

Since eggs weren't always available and tough to keep, 1800s-era cooks improvised and skipped that step, developing a quicker, slightly cleaner and just-as-delicious meal.
