Banquet Chicken Fried Steak
I am going to admit that I got suckered into this product. I saw the words “Chicken” and “Fried”. I did not even think. I grabbed and dropped it in my red basket (you know where that is). For .99 cents, this is a disgusting (good or bad) deal.
It was sweet actually! Had a nice crunch but was in a pool of water with some of the gravy pouring in. This did not bother me because I was happy that the corn was poppy and somewhat fresh.
The Mashed Potatoes:
Not as watery as I was anticipating which was a plus, but it was your standard powdery potato mix. The texture was somewhat thick and creamy but liquidy for what mashed taters are supposed to be.
Not so bad because it actually had some peppery and salty taste. The gravy did have the same kind of water/creamy feel as the potatoes but saltier and with some other spices maybe garlic and paprika.
Definitely bread-y which was sogified by the gravy. I think most people would be totally grossed out by this, but I kind of like the mouth feel of it. (Yes I said it.) I like that kind of texture. The steak meat was definitely chopped or cubed beef fried in banquet’s usual batter. I kind of enjoy it. It is comfort food that I grew up with so don’t judge! But really, you can judge me. Can any one relate?
The Round Up:
Did I finish it? Yes
Would I buy it again? In a moment of despair or boredom or brokedom
Would Recommend it? Nah, I guess not. Go to a diner for this dish.
Rating: 4 (but I my taste buds kinda liked it)
Thanks for reading!!
