Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 


To start the day off I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. I then fried 3 slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham. As the Ham was almost done I piled it up in the skillet and topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Put the ham on 1/2 the Muffin and I had my Breakfast Sandwich! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a shower early this morning and then partly cloudy and 56 degrees out. Not much going on today. Did a load of laundry and then cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight its a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 

 


When I went to Meijer the day before and I picked up a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef.

 

 

 

 


To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive 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.

 

 

 

 

 


To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 


For a second side I opened up another jar of the Canned Green Beans. Just heated them up in a large sauce pan and done! Then I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 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.
