Today’s Menu: Cubed Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

Warming up around here, up to 9 degrees this morning! We have a few inches left on the ground and they say starting tonight into tomorrow night we have another 3 or 4 inches on the way. Got out again running a couple of errands and back home. Dinner tonight; Cubed Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans.

 

 

 

I normally don’t eat Beef but I’m making an exception tonight. While at Meijer came across some beautiful looking Cubed Steak. They looked too nice to pass up so I picked a package. They come 2 to a package, so it was one for dinner and one for the freezer. They were good size patties so I was able to cut them in half and had 1 for dinner and the other half for breakfast. To prepare them I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then rolled them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Canola Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

 

For a side dish I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, just microwave for 6 minutes total. Then I also made some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, that I used to put on the Mashed Potatoes and Cubed Steak. I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunk Cup.

 

 

 

 

Cube SteakCubed Steak 003

Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks[who?] insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

 

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:[2]
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.
