If you can "Country Fry" chicken, pork , and beef cube steaks, why not ground beef patties ? Well, with this recipe you can.:) When handling the "steaks" please take care when turning over in the egg/milk mixture,because they might crumble.And the same goes for turning over in the seasoned flour.For easier handling of the "steaks" you may want to freeze them for about 1/2 an hour or until they are slightly firm.If desired please adjust seasonings according to your tastes.For a true comfort meal serve with your favorite mashed potato and green bean recipes.Submitted to "ZARR" on November 21st,2008
