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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy with rain showers, a high of 74 degrees. I had a bout with Phantom Pains last night and this morning until around 10:00. Not much sleep last night so that’s what I did most of the day, I’m just drained! 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 fridge. 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. Good job Meijer!

 

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! We had Mashed Potatoes leftover from last night so I heated those up. Just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 13 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with 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: Prime Rib w/ Au Gratin Potato Casserole and Cut Green Beans

 

To start this 1st day of 2022 off I Fried up some slices of a Cook’s Ham Steak, Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns, i Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Great way to start the New Year! Another day of rain, clouds, and gloomy weather, high of 60 degrees. The rain was steady and heavy at times all day. I was all caught up on everything so I watched some Football Bowl Games and got the Prime Rib Roast in the oven! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Prime Rib w/ Au Gratin Potato Casserole and Cut Green Beans.

 

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at GFS (Gordon Food Service). It’s a 6 1/4 lb. Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a baking pan for 3 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. Removed it from the oven when done and let it rest for 15 minutes.

 

The Prime Rib turned out perfect! So very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from GFS again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I love using these, Delicious and easy to prepare. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post.

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese and some Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. Then I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, topped that with I Can’t Believe That’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy with a passing Light shower, a high of 55 degrees and windy today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry for Mom. Then later I took her over to the Dollar Store, she wanted to pick up a few things. On the way home I dropped some mail by the Post Office Drop Boxes. Then stopped and filled her car up with gas. Not a lot going on today back home. 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 had purchased a while back. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. These 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.

 

 

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 cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 13 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Chili Mac w/ Baked Crescent Rolls

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Rolled out to get the papers this morning and the cars and grass areas had snow on them, not a lot but slightly covered. For the day it was 38 degrees, partly cloudy and very windy that took the wind chill to around 33 degrees. Not such a great day for Opening Day here for the Cincinnati Reds. This was the only day that Mom and Dad would let me stay home from school back when I was in Elementary School. They knew how Baseball crazy I was! Opening Day around this area is like a National Holiday. So I had another bad day with my sinuses and sinus headache. If the weather would just stay warm or cold I would be fine but as long as our weather flips back and forth between the 2 my sinuses will continue to be bad. I wanted a hot meal and something easy to prepare. So I settled on Chef Boyardee Chili Mac w/ Baked Crescent Rolls.

 

First time I’ve had this in many of a year. As all Chef Boyardee products it’s easy to prepare and delicious! The Chili Mac is as it describes, Macaroni with Beef in Chili Gravy. To prepare it just empty the contents into saucepan. Heat over medium heat until warm, stirring occasionally. Ready to serve! Plenty of Macaroni along with plenty of Beef. And that Chili Gravy is so good, seasoned just right. There’s 270 calories and 23 net carbs per serving.

 

I also baked a small roll of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I just love these, they go great with any meal. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Chef Boyardee uses real beef, enriched macaroni pasta, and a robust chili gravy to give Chef Boyardee Chili Mac the classic taste that your family will ask for again and again. Ready to serve in just 90 seconds, Chef Boyardee Chili Mac is the heat-and-eat meal busy families can count on. Chef Boyardee Chili Mac is so easy to prepare, anyone can do it. Just heat and eat.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes

 

To start this rainy morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Meijer Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then topped them off with Diced Ham. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 58 degrees, partly cloudy and light rain on and off all day. A whole lot of rain is coming up for tomorrow. Did a couple of loads of laundry after Lunch. Later I straightened up the pantry and our junk closet. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased yesterday. 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. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Savory Beef Gravy that I added a can of Kroger Pieces and Stems Mushrooms, to top the Cubed Steak with.

 

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

So for another side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beaters (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). We love these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Prime Rib Sandwich and Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 38 degrees and cloudy out all day. Did laundry, cleaned the house and did a few things outdoors. Just not a lot going on again. For Dinner tonight I prepared the Leftovers, Prime Rib Sandwich and Green Beans. I sliced the remaining Prime Rib into nice size slices and made Sandwiches out of them. Served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun and topped with some Woeber’s Horseradish Mustard. I left the original post from last night for ingredients and cooking instructions. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

 

 

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at Costco. It’s a 3 1/2 lb. Heartland Farm Foods Sous Vide Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a foil lined baking pan for 40 minutes. Internal temperature of 100 degrees. Removed it from the pan to a serving dish.

 

 

The Prime Rib turned out perfect! Very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Rare to Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from Costco again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.

 

 

For a  side I heated up the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just reheat them in a small sauce pan and heat until heated through on medium heat. Ready to eat!

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 toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 52 degrees out today, not too bad!  After Breakfast I went to Walmart for a couple of elderly neighbors. I go for them a couple of times a month. Both couples are in their late 80’s and 90’s. So I help them out when I can. I went early to avoid the crowds. It really started getting crowded as I was leaving. Back home just did a few things around the house. 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 had purchased a while back. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far.

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 and Cube Steak with.

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 16 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love that Goetta! Windy, cloudy, light rain and 45 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom, again. She found out she needed some more items for Thanksgiving. I got to Kroger around 7:00 and it was already getting crowded. Back home I did a load of laundry. I always take what clothes I go to the store or Doctor’s Appointment in and wash them right away. Can’t be too careful! I go for my yearly check and tests at my Oncologist, hopefully still Cancer Free! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased the other day. 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.

So for another 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). We love these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers.
