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

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. Then I also lightly fried a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. My cousin came over today and put down new Mulch in the Flower Beds. Then touched up the wooden deck with some fresh paint and then put a sealant on the ramp outside. Almost done with the outside work! For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I reheated the leftover Canned Green Beans. Just heated them up in a large sauce pan and done! Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach 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.

    • These Cube Steaks from Meijer are about the only Beef I have anymore.

      • We’re not eating beef as much either, unless Hubby realizes we haven’t had any for awhile, then we over-do the beef for a week or so.

      • 🙂 I love Buffalo, I’m having a Wild Idea Buffalo Steak for Dinner tonight in fact.
