Living in Texas has only brought amazing southern-inspired dishes my way. They aren’t always healthy, but that’s ok for now…I guess!

My mom is an amazing cook to this day, but she’s not able to work her way around the kitchen as effortlessly as she once did. So now it’s my time to recreate those dishes that I grew up on and share them with you…they didn’t have blogs back in the day. :)

One of those southern-inspired dishes that my mom made when I was growing up was her famous Poor Boy Chicken Fried Steak. Much like a traditional chicken fried steak, it became a less expensive version when times were tough.

Drawing inspiration for our #BlogFilmFood Spring and Summer Film Series, I chose to share this awesome southern-inspired dish since it is everything that southern food is cracked up to be.

  • Loaded with flavor.
  • Pan-Fried.
  • And just pure deliciousness…

It’s one of those dishes that screams…take me to your next potluck dinner!! Enjoy!
