^You would press the patties in the flour mixture before frying it. I would think something like crushed corn flakes would be good as breading.

I don't know if you can buy Frys brand where you live but their breaded schnitzel <a href="http://www.frysvegetarian.co.za/products/frys-vegetarian-golden-crumbed-schnitzel/" target="_blank">http://www.frysvegetarian.co.za/prod...bed-schnitzel/</a> tastes *exactly* like what I remember chicken fried steak tasting like--just like the one from Dairy Queen. CFS with mash and gravy was my dad's favourite meal so on the anniversary of his death we always buy a box of frys schnitzel in honour of him.

Guys, "chicken fried steak" is the name of beef cube steak fried like you would fry a chicken. Like flour, salt, pepper, etc. Another name would be "country fried steak" as well.</div>
</div>
<br>
im glad you offered that explanation, i was wondering whether you somehow coated beef in chicken then fried it haha.

Maybe it's just us, but Mr. T and I think the <a href="http://www.food.com/recipe/chickpea-cutlets-283551" target="_blank">Chickpea Cutlets</a> from Veganomicon taste like chicken fried steak if you press them kinda thin and bake them. They'd probably taste even more like chicken fried steak if you used "beef" flavored broth instead of veggie broth and omitted the lemon.</div>
</div>
<br>
I've made those a couple of times. They were totally tasty, but kinda stringy.<br><br>
Not sure if I did something wrong, or if that's just kinda how they are...

Yeah, my success with that recipe is pretty touch-and-go. My partner, who is a terrible cook, makes them perfectly every. single. time.<br><br>
To the OP, Vegan Yum Yum has a fantastic recipe that might be what you're looking for (ignore the salad portion):<br><br><a href="http://veganyumyum.com/2008/03/apple-cranberry-salad-with-fried-seitan-and-almond-dijon-dressing/" target="_blank">http://veganyumyum.com/2008/03/apple...ijon-dressing/</a>

I made this tonight! I read some of the reviews first and decided to cut down on the gluten to avoid the stringy texture. It had a few strings like real meat would have and I was actually very pleased with it. I cut out some of the spices and just kept it southern. Also used "chicken" broth instead of veg. broth. Using the leftover grease I made a fantastic almond-milk country gravy and served it over mashed potatoes with turnip and collards greens.<br><br>
Thank you again!

That's pretty cool about your Dad. CFS is just one of those warm comforting meals. :)<br><br>
I don't think I can buy it in my area, but I just found where I think you can purchase them online. Thanks!

You had me at "almond milk country gravy". My husband convinced me to switch from cow milk to almond milk because I'm diabetic and cow milk has been linked to diabetes in children (I was/am child-onset diabetic, and we plan to have kids someday.) Now I'm crazy about almond milk, so any time I find a recipe for it I jump on it. Would you happen to know the recipe for your gravy? Or was it something you found online?

I'm glad you switched! :)<br><br>
I buy my almond milk from the grocery store. I believe it is Silk brand. Very good stuff! I buy a carton of vanilla flavored for oatmeal and smoothies and the regular for cooking and cold cereal. The recipe for the gravy was just like I would make my gravy when I was still drinking cow's milk, except that I'm using grease that's not from an animal. I kept some of the olive oil that I fried the cutlets in and added flour, almond milk, salt, pepper, and a touch of paprika. The key to no lumps is to continuously wisk it once it starts boiling. It's pretty much touch and go. If I throw in too much flour in the beginning I just add more milk and vice-versa. :)

Up until a couple of years ago that was my thought also. I had never heard of it before then.

Did you fry them or bake them? When I fried them, I thought they had a weird texture, too, but not when I baked them. They're totally weird fried.

They don't work any better when baked for me. Hopefully it will work for you!
