Old Country Fried Steak (Hint: It’s really lamb!)

Country fried steak is a classic dinner meal. If you follow this blog, you know that I do not follow classics well. So I had some lamb and a need for a Greek-inspired dinner. This dish has crunch, lamb, savory, gravy, and Greek spices. I hope you like it .
