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.

Today’s Menu: Steak Hoagie Patties w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

Steak Hoagie Patties w Baked Crinkle Fries 010
For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Love these Sausage Links,only 65 calories for 2 links. Then I made some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, toasted 2 slices of healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another really humid day out there again! Not quite as hot, 84 degrees, but it was humid early in the morning and had a couple of passing showers. Not a whole lot to do today, just got caught up on some small jobs around the house. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Steak Hoagie Patties w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

Steak Hoagie Patties w Baked Crinkle Fries 002

While at Kroger yesterday I was in the frozen foods and spotted some J.T.M. Beef Hoagie Patties. It had been quite some time since I’ve had these and they looked good and I grabbed a package of them. Growing up we would have the J.T.M. Burger Patties all the time, and it’s been even longer since I’ve had the Burgers. So after getting a package of the Hoagie Patties I picked up a package of Kroger Whole Wheat Hoagie Rolls. I’ll also need some Baby Bella Mushrooms, Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Provolone Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. I’ll also be baking some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries.

 

 

I started by preheating the oven at 400 degrees, I’ll be baking the Fries and toasting the Hoagie Buns. The Fries take 18 minutes and the Buns about 3 minutes.

 

Steak Hoagie Patties w Baked Crinkle Fries 003
As I said I’ll be using the J.T.M. Beef Steak Hoagies. They come pre-cooked and frozen so all you have to do is warm them back up. You can bake them, pan fry them, or grill them, I pan fried mine. It took about 3– 4 minutes per side, after flipping them over I added the Provolone Cheese with a minute of cooking time left. As the Hoagies were cooking I sliced up some Mushrooms and sauteed them and in a small sauce pan and I heated up the Sauce in another small sauce pan on medium low.

 

 

Steak Hoagie Patties w Baked Crinkle Fries 004
With everything getting done at the same time I assembled the Hoagie. Started by placing the Cheese covered Hoagie Pattie on the bottom Bun. Next added the Sauce and topped it with the Mushrooms and the top half of the Bun. I’m not a big Beef eater anymore but these are really good! Nice flavor and cook up very easy.

 

 

 

Ore Ida Crinkle Fries4_crop (1)

Served it with the baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries along with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Cube Steak Sandwich w/ Roasted Baby Gold Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

Had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast and then off to Meijer and quick stop at Kroger. Wanted to get back home to get some things done today around the house. I built a couple of new shelves for the shed that I Cube Steak Sandwich w  Roasted Baby Gold Potatoes and Sliced Car 008installed today. Then inside the house I had to replace some moulding that damaged while in my Hoveround, which happens a lot! Life in a wheelchair! Very thankful for my Hoveround Mobility Chair, it’s my legs now. If you have allergies, stay out of Southwest Ohio for the next few days! They said that for the next few days that Pollen, Mold, and etc. will be terrible. And by the way my head feels along with my sneezing they’re right! Suffering with it today. For dinner tonight I prepared Cube Steak Sandwich w/ Roasted Baby Gold Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I used my favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Cubed Steak. I picked up a couple of packages this morning at Meijer, it’s the best Cubed Steak I have ever found or had. It’s about the only Beef I ever have, normally I have Buffalo, Fish, Cubed Steak Sandwich Beef 002Chicken, or Pork. 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. Topped with some Heinz 57 Sauce and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

Cube Steak Sandwich w  Roasted Baby Gold Potatoes and Sliced Car 007
I made a skillet of Roasted Potato with Turkey Bacon. To make this Potato Dish I’ll need; 2 Slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, Sea Salt Ground Black Pepper, 1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and quartered Baby Gold Potatoes (quartered). Start by heating a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add Turkey Bacon to pan; cook 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove Bacon from pan; crumble. Add Potatoes to drippings in pan; cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once. Then bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until Potatoes are fork tender. Sprinkle Bacon and Parsley over Potatoes; serve with pork. Excellent Potato Dish.

 

Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread 003
Then I opened up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good as fresh Carrots. Just empty the can of Carrots into a small sauce pan; heat to a boil and reduce heat to a slow simmer until heated through. Drain excess liquid and serve. Also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

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

 

 

Cubed Steak Sandwich 006

 

I made a Egg beater’s Egg White Omelet that I filled with my 3 Bean Buffalo Chili and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Colby – Jack Cheese. I also toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Shortly after that we had to take my Mom’s car to mechanics. The Engine Light has come on and it’s time for an Oil Change and to see what’s causing the light to come on. So I followed there and brought her back home while it was being repaired. On the way back we stopped at Kroger, Mom needed a few items. Back home I didn’t do a whole lot, I’m having lower back problems. If it continues to get worse I’ll be making a trip to the ER or Doctors. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Waffle Fries.

 
It’s very seldom I use Beef but when I do it’s usually my favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Beef Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two. The best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so Cubed Steak w White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Bea 003I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out 1 pattie. I had a package in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I first grabbed a small sauce pan and heated up a jar of Heinz Brown Mushroom Gravy. I added some extra sliced Portabella Mushrooms to it for some extra Mushrooms. 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 Virgin 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 toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. I’ll have the other half for breakfast in the morning.

 

Waffle Fries_crop
To go with Cube Steak I baked some Ore Ida Waffle Fries. I preheated the oven to 425 degrees. I used a small baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed the foil with Pam Cooking Spray. The Waffle Fries are a little higher in calories than the Crinkle Fries I normally prepare, but it’s good to change it up a bit. So I lined the Fries on the baking sheet, seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, and baked them for about 17 minutes (until a light golden brown). Just a flat out excellent Fry, as all Ore Ida Products! I had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping the Fries and a Snapple Diet Half and Half Lemonade/Tea to drink. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

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

 
Well the big snow that headed to the East missed our are a completely, which is fine by me! For Breakfast I had an Egg Beater’s Scrambled Egg White that I served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin.

 

 

Wow, you don’t realize how much you miss your computer until it goes down on you. I went to go online last night Cubed Steak Sandwich w Baked Waffle Fries 019around 9:00 and I had no internet service. Called Time Warner and checked it out and said it was showing I had service. After more checking they said it had to be my modem, which is about 8 years old now. There just enough ice and snow leftover from the other day that I was going to need a little help getting out and going to a local mall where Time Warner is located to get a mew modem. So I called around last night to various friends and it seemed everyone was busy Saturday. I was determined to get there one way or another this morning. I was up early, as usual, so before Breakfast I over to the computer unplugged everything and plugged everything back up, and BAM I had service again! Something must have loosened up. No internet just overnight but I suddenly realized how much I use a computer. Especially being in a wheelchair, it provides a lot of entertainment and gives me a lot to do. But I’m back! Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Waffle Fries.

I first grabbed a small sauce pan and heated up a jar of Heinz Brown Mushroom Gravy. I added some extra sliced Portabella Mushrooms to it for some extra Mushrooms. 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 Virgin 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 toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. I’ll have the other half for breakfast in the morning.

 

 
To go with Cube Steak I baked some Ore Ida Waffle Fries. I preheated the oven to 425 degrees. I used a small baking Waffle Fries_cropsheet that I lined with foil and sprayed the foil with Pam Cooking Spray. The Waffle Fries are a little higher in calories than the Crinkle Fries I normally prepare, but I wanted to change it up a bit. So I lined the Fries on the baking sheet, seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, and baked them for about 17 minutes (until a light golden brown). Just a flat out excellent Fry, as all Ore Ida Products! I had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping the Fries. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

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: Cubed Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Beans

 

 

Cubed Steak w White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Bea 004
Another cold day out there, also still a strong cold breeze blowing which makes it feel even colder. They say next week though the temps go up to the 50’s and 60’s all week. Looks as though it will be a Wet Christmas instead of a White one. Had a few errands to run after Breakfast. Those out of the way came back home and did some house cleaning. Then I baked some Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls for snacks late this evening. You can read the separate post for the recipe. For dinner tonight it’s a Cubed Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian 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 so I froze the other patty. I tried a new flour and spice combination to coat it with. I was watching Food Network last night and this was the coating that they used on their Cube Steak and looked delicious, so why not give it a try!

 

 

Cubed Steak w White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Bea 001

For the Cube Steak dredging I’ll need; Dried Oregano, Cayenne Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Flour. I’ll also need 2% White Milk. The amounts of Spices will vary according to the size and how many Cube Steaks you’ll be using. In this case with making 1 Cube Steak I used 1 teaspoon of each Spice combined with 1/4 cup of Flour.

I first put the flour into a pie pan and added the Spices and mixed with a fork. To prepare it I seasoned the Cube Steak with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I then dredged it in the Milk, shaking off the excess, and then dredged it in the Spice and Flour mix. I then took a medium size skillet, sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray and added 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I fried it about 4 minutes per side. It came out golden brown and delicious! Excellent flavor from the Spices and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. I’ve found another recipe to prepare Cube Steak with! This recipe will work on Cubed Pork Steak also.

 

 
For a side dish I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, just microwave for 6 minutes total. Then I also madeFried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003 some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, that I used to put on the Mashed Potatoes and Cubed Steak. Then for one 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 every day and never get tired of having them. This turned out to be one Classic Comfort Food Dinner! For dessert later a Devil’s Food Chocolate Frosted Cup Cake.

Cubed Steak Sandwich w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Pot 008
Cool and rainy morning to start. Had a light Breakfast and headed out to Kroger to pick up a couple of items for tomorrow night’s dinner. Back home did some laundry and then some house cleaning. Then we still had a couple of chairs and outside table that I moved into the shed for the Winter, it’s getting to be that time of year! For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potatoes.

Then for one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. My Aunt had grown some in her garden and brought us over some last Summer and loved them. Then just the other day while at Kroger I came across the Allens Cut Italian Green Beans, so I bought 4 cans of them. Prepared 1 can the other night. 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 every day and never get tired of having them.

Just reheated and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
