Red meat + mashed potatoes + gravy = one very happy husband. I made this dish Monday night and I had a feeling that it was going to go over well; I was right. I followed the chicken-fried steak recipe exactly according to the PW. For the mashed potatoes, I substituted regular milk for the heavy cream, because I felt like I was clogging an artery by simply looking at the list of ingredients. I really didn’t find either recipe that time consuming or difficult, and they were definitely yummy. My husband said that the mashed potatoes were the best he has ever tasted(my thought was, “well they better be considering how terrible they are for you”). Judging from the smile on my husband’s face as he was eating this dish, I know that we will be making both of these recipes again. Thanks PW for bringing a smile to my Marlboro Man’s face!
