Today’s Menu: Beef Pot Roast with Gravy w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes

 

 

Went out to grab the Morning Papers and it is COLD out there this morning. It’s 20 degrees with a wind chill in the teens, COLD! Partly sunny and 37 degrees but the wind chill kept it at below freezing most of the day. So for Breakfast I prepared one of my favorites, Hash Browns and Ham topped with an Egg and Cheese. I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, topped them with some cooked diced Ham, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today. Then watched some Football for the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight a Beef Pot Roast with Gravy w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

While at Costco the other day I came across a Morton’s of Omaha Beef Pot Roast with Gravy. It sounded and look delicious so I bought a container of it. It’s precooked so all you have to do is heat it up. There’s 2 ways you can prepare it, by the microwave or by boiling the bag in water. I went with the microwave preparation. To prepare it; Remove the outer sleeve and the tray seal. Leave the reheat bag with the Beef Pot Roast in the tray. Cut 4 small holes in the top of the reheat bag for ventilation. Place the tray with the reheat bag into the microwave. Microwave on high for 10 minutes. Cut end of bag with scissors and empty into tray for serving. Very easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

For one side I roasted some Carrots. I bought a bag of Whole Carrots from Kroger. Washed the Carrots off and then sliced them up. I grabbed a medium-sized sauce pan and filed it with water. Heated it on high bringing it to a boil. Added the sliced Carrots and boiled until almost for tender. Drained the water and set the Carrots aside. For the Potatoes I used a bag of Petite Red Gourmet Potatoes. Gave them a quick wash with water and the cut them in half. Put them in a bowl and seasoned them with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, and Extra Light Olive Oil. Mixed them in a bowl until seasoned. I had already preheated the oven on 425 degrees. I got a baking sheet and covered it with foil. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I then added the sliced Carrots and Red Potatoes to the pan. Seasoned them with Dried Rosemary and Dried Thyme then mixed them together in the pan. Put the pan in the oven and baked until fork tender.

 

 

 

 

With everything done I grabbed a large serving bowl and added the Carrots and Red Potatoes. Then I topped them with Beef Pot Roast. I saved the gravy that was with the Roast in another bowl and added that to top the Roast with when serving.This is the 1st time I tried the Morton’s of Omaha Beef Pot Roast with Gravy and it was delicious! The Beef was tender and flavorful and the Gravy was seasoned just right! The Carrots and Potatoes were perfect with the Beef Roast. Fantastic Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cream Style Skillet Corn

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and served.And had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it was back to the rainy and humid weather, 85 degrees. Very bad day with my allergies! Been a tough Spring and Summer on everyone with allergies. Did a little housework and then rest. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cream Style Skillet Corn.

 

 

When I went to Meijer last week 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 2nd side dish I prepared a can of Glory – Seasoned Cream Style Skillet Corn. It had been awhile since I’ve had this. To prepare it just emptied the can into a sauce pan and heated to a boil. Reduced the heat, to a low simmer and continued heating until heated through. If you like Corn you’ll love this Glory Corn! Very good Corn side dish. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

Glory Seasoned Southern Style Cream Style Skillet Corn

Glory Foods Cream Style Skillet Corn features sweet yellow and white corn kernels blended in a creamy sauce with onions, black pepper and a hint of bacon.

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

 

 

To start my day off I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. I then lightly 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 added a little of Kraft Mayo to the top 1/2 of the Muffin and I had my Breakfast Sandwich! Partly cloudy, humid, and 84 degrees out today. Laid back day today so I got caught up on some little things that needed done. 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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next I cooked some more of the fresh Green Beans. Mom’s Cousin dropped some more of them off to us that they had grown. Had to string them and break them up. Then boiled them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these fresh Green Beans! For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Seasoned Petite Potatoes, Fried Polenta Slices, and Cut Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I made another Breakfast Sandwich. I made this for Breakfast yesterday and it was so good I wanted another one. First I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Next I lightly fried a few slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham and as they Ham was finishing cooking I topped it with a slice of Sargento Swiss Cheese. In another small skillet as the Ham was cooing I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites. Put the Egg Whit Scramble on the English Muffin and topped it with the Ham and Swiss. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom. Then went and picked up Breakfast for her at McDonald’s. I had to wait around the house today for the Hoveround repairman. i needed some repairs done to my Hoveround Mobility Chair. After I had the Chair repaired just did a few things around the house and outside. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Seasoned Petite Potatoes, Fried Polenta Slices, and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the freezer. I sat it 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. Normally I use Buffalo but as far as I know no one makes Cubed Bison Steak, at least not yet!

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

For one side I prepared some Private Selection Petite Potatoes Herbes De Provence in Artisan Seasoning Blend. I purchase these at Kroger. They are similar to the Little Potato Co. Potatoes that I prepare. It comes in a microwavable tray. Just heat in microwave for 5 and 1/2 minutes. Next add a 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and then the Seasoning Packet. Stir and serve! They turned out piping hot and delicious, really like the Seasoning provided.

 

 

 

For one side I prepared Fried Polenta. It’s been a while since I had Polenta so when I was at Jungle Jim’s Market last visit I picked a roll up. I use Frieda’s Organic Traditional Polenta. it comes in a roll, so all you have do is slice it and then prepare it the way you want. To make it I’ll need Egg Beater’s, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. To prepare it just lightly coat the slices in the Egg Beater’s and gently shake off the excess. Then dip each slice in the bowl of bread crumbs and coat well. Then I fried the slices, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 1/4″ deep in a skillet and fry the slices for 2-3 minutes on each side. They fry up golden brown with a nice crust, flavorful, and a moist center.

 

Then I also heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Wow, one good Dinner tonight, Mom really enjoyed it! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Outside cloudy and 52 degrees. Dad doing a lot better today, thankfully. So this afternoon did some light cleaning around the house and then cleaned and straightened the big freezer up, which it needed! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

When I went to Meijer the day before and I picked up a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak. They are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far.

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.

 

 

 

So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family love’s these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers.

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans of any kind every day and never get tired of having them.

 

 

 

 

 

I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Love this Bread! We’ve been using this instead of the Multi Grain Bread of late. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Prime Rib w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

 

 

I had to fast over night and skip Breakfast this morning. I had my 4 month checkup at the Family Doctor for my for my cholesterol, sugar and etc. Really great timing to have to have this done. Fasting on Christmas Night with everything to eat and snack on. This will be the last time I let them schedule this around a Holiday! Anyway I had to be at the Doctor at 8:15. It’s one COLD morning out there today! A low of 14 degrees and a high of only 24 along with one cold breeze. I guess our mild Winter is over. Back home gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then after Lunch I cleaned the house, vacuum and dusted. For Dinner tonight it’s Christmas Dinner leftovers! I reheated the Prime Rib w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread.

 

I reheated the Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes in the microwave. We had used Del Monte Cut Green Beans along with Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

 

 

Then to reheat the Prime Rib I heated the oven on 350 degrees. Sliced off my Prime Rib from the remaining Roast and put the slice into a small baking pan. Covered the pan with Foil and reheated it for about 15 minutes. It reheated perfectly, and tasted just as delicious! You got to leftovers especially when its Prime Ribs and Sides! As I said I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack tonight I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

Prime Rib

A slice of prime rib from a standing rib roast, topped (on the right side) with mushrooms

A standing rib roast, also known as prime rib, is a cut of beef from the primal rib, one of the nine primal cuts of beef. While the entire rib section comprises ribs six through 12, a standing rib roast may contain anywhere from two to seven ribs.

It is most often roasted “standing” on the rib bones so that the meat does not touch the pan. An alternative cut removes the top end of the ribs for easier carving.

Rib eye steaks are cut from a standing rib, boned with most of the fat and lesser muscles removed.

While often referred to as “prime rib”, the USDA does not require the cut to be derived from USDA Prime grade beef.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. One delicious Breakfast!

 

 

 

 

Outside partly cloudy and 72 degrees. After Breakfast I went to the hospital to see a friend of mine, she had a hip replacement. She had broken her hip last year snow skiing and has nothing but trouble with it so she had it replaced. She’s doing great! Back home I cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Then did a few things outside around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Peppered White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans.

 

 

 

While at Meijer the other day I picked up a couple of packages of the Meijer Beef Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two. They 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 and cooked the other Cubed Steak for Mom. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Normally I use Buffalo but as far as I know no one makes Cubed Bison Steak, at least not yet!

 

 

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. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy Mix. Topped the Cubed Steak and Mashed Potatoes with it.

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

Then I heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later 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.

Today’s Menu: Hamburger Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Happy 4th of July to everyone out there! Please, as always, remember those out there serving our Country so we can enjoy Holidays like this. For Breakfast this morning I had purchased a package of Smithfield Anytime Favorites Sliced Ham. Just heat up for 1 minute in a skillet and it’s ready! I then toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped the Ham with a slice of Sargento Reduced Calorie Swiss Cheese and served it on the Muffin. Made a delicious Breakfast sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Hot and muggy with a passing shower outside today. Not a lot going on today, very laid back. I cleaned up around the house and then spent the afternoon watching a couple of movies I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s Sliders again! I prepared Hamburger Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

It’s 2 days of Sliders for me. yesterday it was Crabcake Sliders and tonight Beef Sliders. Well it doesn’t happen often, rarely ever, but I’m having Beef tonight! I was at Kroger yesterday and I came across a bag of Kroger Ground Beef Sliders – Mini Beef Burgers. They looked good and I had just bought a package of Pepperidge Whole Wheat Slider Buns so I had a perfect pairing. I switched from Beef to Bison, or Buffalo, several years ago when i was diagnosed with Diabetes 2. Healthier, leaner, less fat, and tastes better so the switch was easy. But these looked good and Mom and Dad would really like them! They come frozen and there are 16 2 oz. Slider Patties per package.

 

 

To prepare them; You prepare them frozen, no need to thaw. Just place the Patties in a preheated skillet, preheated on medium heat. Heat on the first side until the juices start to flow. Flip it over and cook till done with about 1 minute of frying time left I added a 1/2 slice of Arla Gouda Cheese. First time trying the Arla Gouda Cheese also. Very good Gouda, smooth, nice flavor, and only 80 calories per slice. The Burgers fry up perfect, I seasoned them with some Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I served them on Pepperidge Wheat Slider Buns. I still prefer my Buffalo but these were pretty good!

 

 

And as usual when having any type of Burger you must have fries! I I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries, I used Ore Ida yesterday. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a Weight watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
