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.

 

 

 

 


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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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: 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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

Cube SteakCubed Steak Sandwich w New Potatoes 001
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.
