UCCFS: Chicken Fried Steak vs Guacamole Round 1

On surface it looks like this one could be a blowout. The #6 seed Chicken Fried Steak is a hearty home style meal while #11 seed is just a dip like appetizer. Chicken Fried Steak has two elements that make it such a powerful comfort food. The first is the fried coating that normally accompanies fried chicken, and the second is steak. Two separate comfort food contenders in one food. Both Fried Chicken and Steak have all ready advanced in their battles, so you would think 2 in 1 stands mightily over a dip, right?

Guacamole when served fresh brings a touch of salsa and the avocado wholesomeness together in what is a traditional Mexican style appetizer or side dish that is a favorite of so many. With chips or served as a layer on food, guacamole’s creaminess is a happy meal for me. I think guacamole is great paired with nachos and fajitas. It is a hard sell with many because guacamole is not the sexiest of foods. People are turned away by the appearance, how fast it turns colors, and the cilantro that some think tastes like soap. I for one love a lot of cilantro in my version of guacamole.

Overall, guac probably isn’t going to stand much of a chance, but you never know what might happen when the polls open. Go Vote for your favorite, and share your favorite comfort food recipes or experiences with us.

    This is a hard one to pick for me since I don’t particularly care for either. For one I don’t like that style of gravy unless it’s on my biscuits. Never really cared for the green mushy tastless guacamole much either. I guess if I had to eat one of the two I’d go with the chicken fried steak. I could always scrape the gravy off.

    You need to try a better sausage gravy recipe…I don’t like the black pepper over loaded wall paper paste that is tradtional either.

    I don’t have a sausage gravy recipe. Bob Evans or Cracker Barrel is where I ever get biscuit and gravy. That’s usually whenever traveling.

    So true about the gravy being an important part of the success of the cfs. Equally as important is the chicken fried part. It should hold up to the gravy. Like most recipes every ingredient is essential to the success of the dish. I have had more misses with cfs than hits. When it does hit, it is pure comfort food. As much as I love my own guacamole I would still kill for a great cfs. :hungry:

    MMmmmmm Chicken Fried Steak is my choice 90% of the time when I go out 4 breakfasts. Guacamole looks great too, though, and I definitely love it, as well. My vote is for CFS though. 😀

    I love CFS for breakfast but we put green chile sauce and cheese on it instead of country gravy.

    Chicken fried chicken is even better though!

    Isn’t that the same as lemon flavored lemonade?

    Sorry, gotta throw some love to guac. The fresh avocados, the bite of onions and peppers, with a hint of tomatoes and cilantro. Clearly the most underrated, under-appreciated and most misunderstood of all dips…

    I think chicken fried steak is okay, but it’s light years way below the PROPER way a beef steak should be cooked: on the grill. I would much rather have fried chicken with gravy or even biscuits and gravy.

    Scott, you have to stop backing the underdogs and :angryturnip: pick a winner every now and then. Your winning percentages are not too good.
