Country Fried Tempeh Steak and GravyI definitely think this dinner was one for the record books.  William had been saying he wanted something filling and hearty for dinner so I decided to try doing a couple recipes from, as well as a couple of my own.  This time I cut the tempeh into just 2 pieces, which was delicious, but next time will do 4 to get extra breading on each one
