For chicken fried steak lovers across Texas, today is a momentous occasion. It's Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day!
It's an official holiday. The Texas Legislature signed a resolution declaring the so-called holiday back in 2011.
Dallas resident Jeffrey Yarbrough spearheaded the effort to make the day official. He says, "No one does chicken fried like Texans, it’s about time we acknowledge the soul food of our state…chicken fried steak,”
Yarbrough joined forces with Go Texan to create the honorary day for this iconic, mouth-watering meal.
Texans are known for doing things BIG, so loosen your belt buckle and enjoy the delicious dish that is Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day.
