Notes & Variations:

This recipe will serve about 100 people and needs to be significantly reduce for a group of about 4.  This recipe is almost identical to Venison Country Fried Steak which was proportioned for 3 to 4 people.  It is suggested that you use that recipe but add the ingredients milk and Country Gravy Mix.  Other than size, these ingredients are the main differences between the two recipes.
