The Pioneer Woman – Chicken Fried Steak, Gravy, Creamy Potatoes

by PWSux on August 26, 2011

You knew this was coming.

There’s just really not a lot to say about this one folks.  I love a piece of chicken fried steak as much as the next person but this recipe is unfreakingbelievable.  I guess she’s going to serve this with her marinated tomatoes with a full cup of oil and, honestly, I didn’t even have the heart to include an additional tablespoon or so of oil by including the “veggies”.

Yes, the figures are that bad.

I will say this though as a disclaimer — the recipe for the steaks says “serves 6” but the recipe for creamy mashed potatoes says “serves 12”.  Honestly, my family loves mashed potatoes and I usually make 5 lbs to feed less than half of the 12 servings she claims for this recipe (with leftovers) so I’m thinking some FN person had a heart attack and changed the 6 to a 12.  Theory only though!

Here we go.

For ONE serving of steak, gravy and potatoes you will get:

  • 989 calories
  • 49 g fat
  • 70 g carbs
  • 67 g protein

If you have a double serving of potatoes, which is what I personally think she submitted, you will get:

  • 1434 calories
  • 78 g fat
  • 112 g carbs
  • 71 g protein

Ok, now for a real comment, dang you would have to work out for the rest of the day that you weren’t eating to not gain 20 pounds. And love that the healthy part of the plate, the tomatoes, is not something yummy and fresh, but is covered in oil and brown sugar.

There are meals with about half the fat and calories at FAST FOOD places if you order the healthier choices. I realize you really can’t compare the two, and everyone cooks a special meal sometimes, but she just goes so overboard with the oil, butter, cream, etc. It’s almost like she deliberately wants to shock and annoy.

Reply

Sarah August 26, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Exactly what I was thinking. It’s worse than a lot of fast food. I’m thinking her followers don’t pay attention to and/or don’t care about the nutritional value. I think so many people are under the delusion that if it’s homemade, it’s good for you…..and we all know the Reebots are winners in the delusion category.

i wonder what it’s like when one of them visits the doctor for her regular exam and blood is drawn… and it turns out her total cholesterol is like 350. because if one ate her food on a regular basis, it wouldn’t take long.

i like chicken fried steak as much as anyone. i’ve even been known to fry up some to make sandwiches with. but fuck me running. the woman claimed to be a vegetarian at one time, and the cowgirl food section does have the healthiest shit on her site… and i don’t buy the fam not eating vegetables. maybe if she had any damn idea how to correctly prepare them, they would!

peoples’ palates typically evolve. a kid who doesn’t like broccoli often becomes an adult who loves it, especially if they’re exposed to someone who 1. doesn’t overcook veg or 2. drown them in oil or butter.

You know, I printed out one of her recipes (a while back) before it registered with me just how much butter was in it. (No, I didn’t make it.)

Reply

jen August 27, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Actually, back when i liked her i would buy the stuff for a recipe, but the few times i made it, when it came down to it i just couldn’t bring myself to waste so many expensive ingredients. So i would cut the fatty ingredients (butter, heavy cream, etc) in half, or even in quarters, and the recipes turned out great.

Which makes me think she just added obscene amounts of fatty ingredients simply to stand out. Sick.

Suzanne August 26, 2011 at 5:30 pm

It is fat cooked in fat covered in fat. There is no way Laddie Boy can eat that fat and pick up her fat.

Now lets go scare some horses….

Reply

Britt August 26, 2011 at 7:20 pm

I understand frying your meats in oil or butter, but don’t most people place it on a paper towel after cooking to absorb the excess oil?? Unless I missed something, I never saw PW do that??

When she said something like her kids probably won’t eat the veggies, by the time she was done, I understood why! We’re vegetarians, my kids love vegetables, but I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t eat oil soaked veggies either!!

Reply

fuctincalifornia August 26, 2011 at 7:28 pm

best way to drain fried foods i’ve ever used is a cooling rack set over something to catch the drippings. i usu. put a couple paper towels in a sheet pan. stuff that’s supposed to be crunch stays crunchy better if it’s not collecting steam underneath.

*full disclosure* i ganked that method from Alton Brown. 🙂

Paula S. August 26, 2011 at 8:57 pm

Yes, Britt, normal people have a plate waiting that has several thicknesses of paper towel on it. The meat goes from the skillet to the paper towels to drain further before serving. Ree just picked it up out of the skillet and put it on a serving plate.

Reply

TheRealkaren August 26, 2011 at 9:34 pm

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth, thinking of all the gross oil that would puddle on the plate under the fried steak.

I am agog at the calorie count. I know that our Thanksgiving dinner–turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and whatnot–probably has near that amount of fat and calories, but we eat that ONCE A YEAR. She’s cooking these meals, acting like it’s a regular thing at their house, making the morons who watch her and believe everything she says think it’s a weekday meal option.

Sheeyit.

If the chicken-fried steak wasn’t bad enough, you should read the cooking post for August 22, 2011. This features boneless pork chops with a sauce of apples and creamy cheese grits. I started reading this because it didn’t sound too bad until I got to the part about adding 2 (two) cups of heavy cream and 1 1/2 cups of cheese. The grits also had bacon in them. For a recipe that started out with stone-ground grits, it sure went downhill fast. The sauce for the pork chops started out with 2 apples diced, white wine and apple cider vinegar. So far, so good. She then added 3/4 cup of pure maple syrup. How can this women be taken seriously by anyone. That much maple syrup made my face break-out!

jen August 27, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Plus she’s fat, but not very fat for a forty-something. So it sends the message that these foods might make you overweight, but not obese. I have seen so many family members suffer and even die from heart disease, i can’t even stand to think what this deceit does to people. I love decadence, but in moderation. she makes it a POINT that they eat this every day. Sick.

But I can’t wait to see on the show what they top that meal off with. Ice cream or cream pie? Maybe both! Because I don’t think they had enough full-on cream with dinner.

Reply

Mee Mee August 26, 2011 at 6:38 pm

Actually it is topped off with a little after dinner iced coffee. To make: pour 1 oz of brewed cold coffee from your Pottery Barn glass dispenser (it HAS to be Pottery Barn or it just doesn’t taste the same) into a mason jar filled with ice. Then you pour in 15 oz of sweetened condensed milk. Stir. Sip. You’re welcome.

This really made me laugh. We tried making her Hard Sauce recipe at Christmas last year, which is whiskey + whipped cream + powdered sugar and it was vile. I got raging heartburn from eating some with a piece of pumpkin pie. Never again.

Too much condensed fatty creamy stuff (plus booze) in everything she makes, and I like cream.

I don’t know. Something tells me it’ll be Texas Sh*t Cake and Jack Daniel’s Laced Whipped Cream with a side of Jack Daniel’s and a shot of Jack Daniel’s and a Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Coffee. Did I say Jack Daniels enough for endorsement purposes? Jack Daniels.

You have to wonder if that isn’t the fickle hand of Fate at work. . .like the gods just looked down at Ree on Good Morning America and said, “Oh, no you DIN’T!” and decided to cut her viewership by 65 million.

I think this is a very witty site. I lost interest in PW after reading her site religiously for about two years. But this site also saddens me… why are you using your wit and obvious talent for a site like this? I have read your FAQ and I guess I do know why you’re doing it, but I don’t know… ten years from now won’t you look back with regret that you spent months… years… working on a site tearing somebody else down, or as you say, ‘ranting’ about another woman’s blog?

You are a great writer and obviously intelligent, and my comment is not meant in a spirit of bitterness, judgement or criticism, I promise. I know you have every right to spend your time as you choose. I just wonder if deep down you ever wonder ‘Is this the best way I can use my talents’?

Mayuki – I don’t believe you. If you quit “religiously reading” gREEd 2 years ago why are you here? How would you even have a clue regarding this site if you are not lying? Are your pants on fire? I wouldn’t doubt it after seeing the debacle on GMA this morning.

Also, there is no FAQ on this site. There is a tab labeled “First time”. Get it right honey. I have no doubt you didn’t read it since you can’t even get the title right.

“I lost interest in PW”……blah blah blah – Darlin’ we hear it all the time.

Mayuki, who cares why this blog was started?! That’s not the point. It’s clever and tenacious.

Ripping on the US habit of accepting narcissistic frauds, like Ree, has a long history. Partner that with the legitimate research that happens here, with the help of many people and you got gold.

But ultimately, this site is probably not your thing.

Definitely nothing narcissistic about this blog. This woman has a point. The problem with sitting around ripping on bad US habits is that you are one of them and only adding to the negativity that you believe comes from Ree Drummond.

What happened to live and let live? What happened to minding your own business? (Something else I think the US could do.) I truly feel the problem with a blog like this is that I believe you are helping to perpetuate something you deem as wrong. I agree your talents could be used elsewhere – for something really good. Can you imagine a comments section filled with positive thoughts and feelings, and can you imagine how that would send ripples throughout the world? Do you not agree the US could use a serious helping of good vibes??

When I first read this all I felt was anger and remorse – I had to choose to feel differently toward this blog and it’s writer and commenters. That being said, you do choose your own path, so I will send you light and love no matter where you are.

(Oh, how I would love to have a real conversation about this, too, but I somehow doubt it’s going to be possible. I hope for nothing more than to be proved wrong.)

Reply

Mo (just another) August 30, 2011 at 7:13 am

Sarah, that was a very thoughtful post. I appreciate your questions and that you’d like to have a real discussion on the topic. Everything I’m saying is in the spirit of debate and not inteded to be mean. You said, “Can you imagine a comments section filled with positive thoughts and feelings, and can you imagine how that would send ripples throughout the world? Do you not agree the US could use a serious helping of good vibes??” Well you don’t have to imagine it, that’s what PW’s blog and comments section is 100% made of. That kind of non-controversial rainbow utopia is fake and it can’t happen or exist without heavy moderation. The kind of real conversation you’re longing for on this topic, or on any topic, can and does happen here. How is that a bad thing?

I don’t think it’s negativity so much that people are claiming come from Ree Drummond, it’s fakery.

And please don’t ask or wonder how any person or COUNTRY could better spend their time or talents or resources; not only could that be asked or wondered about for every person and COUNTRY on this planet, it’s also an arrogant thing to say since you just spent your own time writing a comment in what you consider a negativity-filled environment after just asking “what happened to minding your own business.” You’re on a public blog with a public comments section and commenting on another public blog: “minding your own business” is not part of the game here or anywhere on the Internet.

I don’t consider this place a cesspool of bad vibes and negativity. People here are funny, welcoming, and are sharing little bits of truth in a vast sea of fake.

Reply

Sarah August 30, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Point taken on minding my own business, but call it my higher calling to step in when I think something really is based on something wrong.

I have to touch on “I don’t think it’s negativity so much that people are claiming come from Ree Drummond, it’s fakery.”

Also in the spirit of debate – are you a woman? Do you wear mascara? A bra? Pantyhose ever? If you happen to be a man – use cologne? Deodorant? Hair gel? Can you really deny that singling out one person in a sea of celebrities and/or bloggers and saying things like they’re fake isn’t the least bit hypocritical? And honestly, I barely scratched the surface on this blog and I would say it borders on bullying. It’s like picking on the fat kid.

What I don’t understand is who cares if she makes a shit-ton of money? Who cares if the government pays HER HUSBAND a shit-ton to take care of horses? Who cares if she uses a ridiculous shit-ton of butter in her recipes? Who cares if she’s narcissistic and fake? Think about it – and I’ve read it here – she has issues, this I won’t argue, but isn’t she just as worthy of love as any other human being on the planet? I mean – is she the devil in carnate? Because that’s what I feel the message is when I read here. And picking apart someone’s life, blog, family, friends, and finances are pretty extreme. Funny people mention that she’s killing her family with the food she makes, because last I checked a good dose of negativity over a long period of time can cause health problems, too, no?

Also, it’s not just Ree that people rip on – she posts a picture of a cowboy from her farm at a competition and his riding style is ALSO picked apart and completely condemned. I’ve been riding and caring for horses for over 35 years, and that horse doesn’t look the least bit distressed to me. There is also absolutely no freaking way you can tell what kind of bit is being used – UNLESS YOU TACKED THE HORSE YOURSELF. I mean, really I could argue there’s no way to know the horse is in pain (it does not look in pain to me at all), unless you are the horse or the Horse Whisperer. I will agree – “proud and capable”? I wouldn’t go that far. The horse looks like it’s working. Yes, working in a competition, but hello, last I checked it’s not the only horse in the world that works in competitions. And the man riding it? Doesn’t look like he’s doing anything different than any other cowboy in America might do, so how did he get caught up in all this “fakery”? Again, can’t deny this feels like bullying. Sitting with the wrong kid on the bus? Ooops, someone took your picture in gym class next to the fat kid and it ended up in the yearbook? Oh, well, then you suck just as bad. That is so not fair. It’s downright wrong, really.

Yes, I know the world isn’t fair. But I believe the world could be kinder.

I don’t read TPW religiously, and I don’t cook many of her recipes, but when I do read her blog I see that she loves her family and compliments them often, she loves her friends and compliments them often, she recognizes that she isn’t perfect and states that often. She isn’t without talent. I feel good sometimes even! I send links to my friends sometimes! So what if it’s FAKE? Gosh, better stop reading novels then. Damn, and I really like novels.

And the people here are welcoming?

“Gawd – girl take a nap and leave us alone.”

“If either of us should be embarrassed, it’s me, not you.”

“But ultimately, this site is probably not your thing.” (At least they said go away nicely!)

“Not only are her pants on fire, her nose is poking a hole in her computer monitor.”

Can I stop there? And that’s only from the comments on THIS post.

Granted this blog may offer a bit of “realness” that Ree’s doesn’t, but I doubt you’d ever change my mind that in the “feeling” department this blog ultimately brings people down.

I’m loving the conversation though, so I sure hope we can continue it!

Well actually I am not lying…

1. I *did* stop reading her site religiously. Like you, I got tired of the Charlie stories. I found there was nothing really new to read about. I thought somebody with her amount of readers should cook and post about healthier food. I was disappointed when lots of ‘guest’ posts started filling the site. Her cooking site took off… and then I just started too feel that corporate vibe and started to lose interest. But I do check there now and then, and just scroll through her latest entries and read what interests me.
2. I think I found your site when I was Googling something PW related… maybe about her Food Network show? And I have been reading this site off and on for a few months (I’ve got you bookmarked on my iphone so it’s one of the sites I occasionally read before sleeping).
3. “How much does Ree pay you, Miyuki” <– this made me giggle
4. "Ten years from now, will you look back with regret that you did the bidding of an internet fraud?" <– this one made me giggle too!
4. FAQ, 'first time'… whatever. I read it on one of my first visits.
5. I guess I read this for the same reason I watch Real Housewives. It makes me sad but I can't stop watching! The same reason you all read her blog still.

I just can't imagine spending hours a day (admit it) researching ways to tear another family down. And don't tell me it's just about truth and honesty, or you wouldn't all be writing nasty things about how her kids are dumb, about her clothes, her make-up and hair, how her husband is unnattractive, etc.

Anyway, I didn't intend to make this snarky, or resemble a 'sheeple' comment, as you like to call them. Just wish your talents were used for something constructive.

I’m not sure why you’re still commenting saying the same thing?

The most I’ve ever spent in one day on this site was about 4 hours and that’s when I was figuring out what went wrong with the widgets in an upgrade and when I installed the forums — I’m NOT a programmer so I was learning as I went. I don’t spend more than an hour, usually less, a day. To be honest, there are days when I don’t do anything at all – other than read comments while reading other sites as well.

My talents are used elsewhere. Do you think this is the only thing I do? LOL This is the space where I discuss Ree Drummond and that’s it. I visit MANY places online to discuss other things.

Trust me, the time I spend at work surfing the net exceed that. You spend time doing this, I spend it watching the Jersey Shore. If either of us should be embarrassed, it’s me, not you.

I don’t comment about the Drummonds’ appearance except about the dangerous floppy sleeves while cooking and the untidiness of letting long hair hang free while cooking. I don’t really believe in making fun of the way someone looks. What attracts me is the expose of the lies and ineptness of Ree and the hidden dirt on the whole clan. Plus, the laughs and camaraderie add up to good entertainment, lots more fun than reality TV or People magazine, which many people waste time on. Why do you care why I’m here?

“How much does Ree pay you, Miyuki” <– this made me giggle <- this made ME giggle. I didn't spell your name wrong. Don't know about YOUR iphone, but MY iphone AUTOMATICALLY spells my name right.

How much does she pay you?!

OK, I instantly thought of you when she whipped up the extra special cowboy breakfast sandwiches. My husband and both looked at each other and cracked up. You need a recipe for that? Hardees makes those for crying out loud. I WILL NOT bother to watch it again – it was vomitrocious.

Guess what Sonic Tweeted today?

Did u watch @thepioneerwoman on food network? Her Cowboy Bfast Sandwiches are lots like our Bfast Toaster Sandwiches, gr8 minds think alike!

Can you believe it? Do you think they gave her the Super Sonic Breakfast Burrito recipe? Poor Ree! Maybe now she’ll get her pickle-o’s. Or a big fat check from Sonic. Next? Her ugly mug on your cherry lime-aide cup. Does anyone know if the owner is related to the Drummonds?

Jesus, I just saw it on the DVR and I was like, WHAT? Is she trying to kill her husband? Seriously, I’m not kidding. He will drop dead on the range in 15 years. They should both know better. And the line, “You can’t leave your cowboy waiting.” Or something like that. What year was this made? 1957? :6 Disappointing. I’m fatter and more subordinate because I watched it. Kill me now.

If you mean cowboy shirts, jeans, and boots for the boys. Yes. For the girls, knit tops, jeans, and sneakers or boots.

Just be clear, PWSux, that I won’t be commenting on your site because you spew hatred, and there is enough of that in our faces everyday. You may suck just as badly as PW herself. Maybe worse. Good luck with all that hate and your heart – you might as well have some butter with your hatred, it’s hurting you just as much. I’m sure you’ve heard this one, too: takes one to know one. Now go ahead and moderate me, just like PW would. You are one in the same. Yin and fucking yang. Oh, how I would love to be there when you realize that, but sadly you probably won’t realize it until you die.

PWSux August 30, 2011 at 5:02 pm

That would be great if you wouldn’t comment here anymore. Thanks. And yes, I will moderate anything else you post because you’re a fucking idiot and you just don’t get it. The difference is sweetie, I have no problem telling you that I don’t want you here and won’t let you comment – go try that at her fake site. You don’t like real stuff but prefer fake…. alrighty then. LOL

You are absolutely free to use that calling and step in on your own space, not here. Don’t mis-read something and leave a long comment like that when you don’t understand what you’re talking about.

I’ve addressed the bullying thing. Go somewhere else and call me a bully, don’t fucking do it here. DONE with that.

I DON’T care that she makes a shit-ton of money. I DO rant on my own damn site about how she PRETENDS to be a down home normal everyday ranchers wife just like you and me (which she USED to say in the beginning all the time but then deleted it and has said MANY times at appearances. And yeah, I DO care that they earn millions taking care of those mustangs and then pretend they only net $100,000 – that’s bullshit and, like you, I felt a higher calling to rant about it….. on my own fucking site.

You’re absolutely right that I rant about other people – DUH! When something is on her blog or part of it, then yes I will rant if I want. What’s it to you? If you’ve been in the horse world for 35 years and can’t tell that he’s got a curb bit in then you have other issues than commenting here. LOL You don’t think he looks like he’s in pain, fine. I do and it’s my site.

If you don’t mind Ree being a fake then that’s your business – others do and that’s theirs.

This site is welcoming to people who think The Pioneer Woman Sux. Get it? No, it’s NOT welcoming to those who don’t.

If you want to carry this on with Mo (if you both choose to) then do it through email but don’t leave a comment like that again because while Mo enjoy having this conversation with you, I don’t. I’ve addressed this shit before and I’m not going to do it again. If you get it, fine. If you don’t, say it somewhere else – you have every right.
