    This under appreciated food needs it's own thread. It's the basis for Chicken Fried Steak. That alone would put it in the food hall of fame. It's also pretty good as a sandwich grilled on the Weber.

    How do you cook this inexpensive piece of heaven?

    Don't get me started on a country that tries to pass ham off as bacon.

    Worst piece of meat on the planet. Even with holes punched in 90 percent of it, the first time I ever took a bite of one I got a big mouthful of gristle.

    There's a place outside Waco called the Tradin' Post... finishing their chicken fried stake is a right of passage.

    There's a little hole in the wall over by Meacham airport that serves the "Big Tex." I could go for one right now.

    There's a recipe where you bread it and bake it covered with gravy and onions. A little bar in my home town used to serve that for lunch. I wish I had the recipe.

    The way I eat them is kind of a stake through the heart anyway.
