Today’s Menu: Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

Cubed Steak Beef 008

 

 

Another day of high humidity with a lot of rain today. Had a bout with the Phantom Pains overnight and didn’t get a whole lot of sleep, finally let up early this morning. Caught up on some sleep during the afternoon. Those pains really take it out of me, sure wish they would come up with a cure or a way to stop them. Mom is having dinner with Dad tonight at the rehab unit tonight. So for my dinner tonight its a Cubed Steak (Topped with Mushroom Brown Gravy) Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I very rarely use Beef but when I do I use my absolute favorite, Cubed Steak from Meijer. The best Cubed Steak I have ever found or had. They’re good size patties so I was able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out 1 pattie. 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. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy, what a Sandwich! I also baked a serving of the Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Then for dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Cube Steak

 

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:
* 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.

  1. This looks really delicious. I’m going to try it out, given I love steak so much. Those fries also look amazing as well. Thanks for sharing!

    • I love a good Cube Steak! I always use the Ore Ida Simply Fries, only 130 calories and 20 net carbs per serving.
