First of all, I didn’t grow up calling this fried steak ‘chicken fried steak’.
However, Wesley insists that’s the correct term.
If you are uninformed, as I was, ‘chicken fried’ is the process of
coating the steak in the buttermilk (or milk) and flour then frying
thus giving it a fried chicken-type exterior.
We usually make the steak and have it with biscuits and gravy.
But, I had bought a loaf of Texas toast and thought it would be a great twist
to do it Patty Melt style.
