Chicken Fried Steak, a Tasty Way to Celebrate Texas

There can be nothing more satisfying than a warmed plate of Chicken Fried Steak and buttery mashed potatoes smothered in peppery creamed gravy and a side of crisp green beans.

Chicken Fried Steak has become so popular that it is now served in many fine dining establishments across the nation using exotic meats such as antelope and elk. The flattened meat, usually a cheaper cut, is tenderized and given a floury egg bath and fried in a cast iron skillet or deep fried giving the cut a flavorful crisped crust with craggy peeks and valleys of crunchy, meaty goodness that captures the aforementioned gravy giving the dish an element of comfort.

Burger of the Day: Half Pound Burger at Lee Harvey’s

There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.

The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen  much smaller than your own at home.

The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster.   Continue reading

Tortilla Soup simply screams Dallas, and the king of the Tortilla Soup is none other than Dean Fearing who picked up the task while serving as Mess Sergeant at The Mansion on Turtle Creek.  We have witnessed the making of this soup, and let’s just say it is far easier to mosey into the Ritz-Carlton than actually produce the soup yourself. However, if you wish to attempt the recipe, we list it at the bottom of this article.
