WHEREAS, Texans are renowned for their love of chicken fried
steak, that exceptional dish that elevates the hearty flavor of
beef to new heights by coating it in batter and breading and frying
it until the ingredients are melded in a blissful union; and
WHEREAS, A food that reflects the history and diversity of
our state, chicken fried steak has been linked to the German
specialty Wiener schnitzel, which arrived in Texas with European
immigrants; other food historians note that chicken fried steak is
similar to pan-fried steak, a favorite of Texas cowboys; and
WHEREAS, Generations of Lone Star State residents have
partaken of this beloved entree, and happy memories of putting
knife and fork to a chicken fried steak in the company of family and
friends are shared by countless people all across Texas; and
WHEREAS, While chicken fried steak can be enjoyed at any
time, the dish’s popularity justifies the celebration of an
observance in its honor; on October 26, 2011, restaurants
throughout the state are marking the second annual Texas Chicken
Fried Steak Day with special deals and related activities; and
WHEREAS, This signature dish occupies a special place in the
culinary culture of the Lone Star State, and Texas Chicken Fried
Steak Day provides a welcome opportunity to pay homage to that
shared legacy; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 82nd Texas
Legislature hereby recognize October 26, 2011, as Texas Chicken
Fried Steak Day and extend sincere best wishes to all who are taking
part in this unique occasion.
