Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees, partly cloudy, and more humid outside today. I took Mom’s car over to the shop and had the tires rotated, new wiper blades, and the oil changed. Back home did a load of laundry and that was it for the day. Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mom loves Ribs so I always try to have them from time to time for her. I purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday and couldn’t wait to have them! Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

 

 

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

 

 

For a side dish 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 heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Half and Half Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

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. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 85 degrees out, still humid. After Breakfast I went to Menard’s. They had a few things I wanted to check out a Cordless Hedge Trimmer that they have on sale and a few other items. Back home got the cart out and sprayed for weeds in the back yard. That’s about it for the day. 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 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.

 

 

 

 


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 some 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.

Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken w/ Cut Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Baked French Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Egg Whites, Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Cheddar Cheese. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Plenty of Sun, 99 degrees, and very humid outside today! It’s really almost too hot to do anything outside. They said the heat index was over 100 degrees! After Breakfast I went to Costco as they opened up at 10:00 this morning. I need some Vitamins, picked up a couple of cases of Canned Goods for the Reach Out Lakota Center, Shrimp, and a Rotisserie Chicken. Back home and stayed in the AC all day! For Dinner tonight its a Rotisserie Chicken w/ Cut Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

 

I had no clue on tonight’s Dinner until going to Costco this morning. I came across some beautiful and large Kirkland Rotisserie Chickens. I mean these Chickens were really big!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So the Chicken was already cooked and all I had to do was reheat it. I grabbed a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Heated the oven on 350 degrees. When ready I put the Chicken in and cooked until it heated through, about 25 minutes. It came out perfect and looked delicious! When I sliced it the juices in it came flowing out. It was seasoned just perfect with an incredible flavor. Very glad I went to Costco!

 

 

 

 

 


For one side I prepared a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. Just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated on high to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and simmered until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then it was leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes for another side. Heated the leftovers in the microwave and served. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Loaf Bread. Very Good Meal considering I had no clue on what to have earlier! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rotisserie Chicken Nutritional Benefits

With rotisserie chicken, you get a good amount of protein with lower amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol than you find in red meat. What’s more, the chicken contains robust amounts of niacin and phosphorus as well as smaller amounts of other minerals and vitamin B-12.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

To start this Monday off I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Plenty of Sunshine, 88 degrees, humid outside today. Still looking for a place to buy new carpet for my bedroom and the bath room. Hard to find a reliable place with good installers! For Dinner tonight its a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger yesterday, just over 1 1/2 lbs. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

 

 


For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

 

 

 

 


For another side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this Sunday Morning I prepared Turkey Sausage, Egg White Scrambled Eggs, Toast, and Tea. I picked up a package of the Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links while at Meijer. Meijer finally has started to have them in stock all the time now! Love these, so fresh and fry up perfect. Plus they are only 70 calories for 2 links! I also Scrambled some Egg Beaters Egg Whites, topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. That’s a great Breakfast to start any day of the week! 85 degrees, humid, and rain and thunderstorms out today. I went and got Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s and afterward she went on to Church. For me I did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today. Watched TV then the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled BBQ Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

 

I purchased the Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops from Meijer yesterday. I wasn’t sure what I wanted and the Meat and Seafood manager asked me what I was looking for and I told him “Not sure but looking for something to grill”. He said stay right here and I’ll cut you something fresh. Then he brought out the Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops. They looked fantastic and I had what I was going to grill. Thank you Meijer Meat Department! I love Meijer, everything so fresh and the prices are some of the best!

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I seasoned them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I went out and fired the the grill up next. I’ll be using Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce on the Chops. With the Chops Seasoned and the Grill fired up I started grilling the Chops. I grilled them for 3 minutes and then rotated them a 1/4 turn to get those beautiful grill marks and continued to cook them another 2 minutes. Turn the Chops over cooked them 2 minutes and rotated a 1/4 turn again. Continued to cook them for 2 minutes. With a minute of cooking time left I basted the Chops with the BBQ Sauce. Removed them from the grill and shut the grill down. The Chops were fantastic! Moist and tasted great!

 

 

 

 

As the Chops were being grilled I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Mashed Potatoes are perfect to go with any meal!

 

 

 

 

 

 

When having Mashed Potatoes you have to have Green Beans! I had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and got them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! For Dessert later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Cup of Oreo Vanilla ice Cream, love these little cups!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Boneless Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well our streak of perfect weather is over. Showers and Thunderstorms through out the day and 79 degrees. This afternoon did laundry and it was house cleaning day. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Boneless Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I had tried Boneless Ribs in quite some time. So while at Meijer the other day I noticed how beautiful they looked and they were on sale, so why not buy a package. I’m preparing them basically the same way I do my Pork Back Ribs with the bone in.

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I put the Ribs in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/2 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 4 hours. In the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

 

 

 

After 4 hours the ribs are ready! Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us, JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! I’ll be buying the Boneless Ribs more often! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Mashed Potatoes are perfect to go with Ribs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And what’s perfect with Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans! I had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and got them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! Quite a Dinner tonight! For Dessert a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees with passing showers and thunderstorms. Went to Walmart Garden Center and bought a new Garden Water Hose. Also bought a couple of Rosemary and Italian Parsley Plants. Cleaned up the driveway area, tons of dead June Bugs and Maple Seeds every day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I’m using the Costco, always delicious, Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions. The package had 20 slices in it and have them in the Freezer. So Last night I grabbed a couple of packages out of the freezer and let them thaw overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To start I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare them I used a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. I then lightly Salted the Pork with Sea Salt and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Parsley. Added the Medallions to the skillet and cooked it for 2 minutes a side, as it just started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillets! I then baked them to a medium rare, 145 degrees in the center of the medallions using a meat thermometer. Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorites. The Pork is so tender and flavorful. Seasoned just right and so moist.

 

 

 

 

To go with the Medallions I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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. I also baked a loaf of Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg

 

I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly Cloudy and 76 degrees out today. After Lunch I got the rake, leaf blower, and the cart out. Did yard work today. Later on I took a ride around the neighborhood. Then went down by the lake. Not too bad out. For Dinner it’s Easter Dinner Leftovers. I made a Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg.

 

 

 

 

 

Plenty of leftovers from the Easter Dinner Feast! Good thing we like Ham, there’s a ton leftover. We almost always use Cook’s Ham when we bake a Ham. So with the Ham I baked yesterday, we made some into Ham Sandwiches. Just took a few slices and serving it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is so delicious and moist. And as always with Cook’s Ham, perfect seasoning! We’ll have quite a few Breakfasts and Lunches out of this. To make the Sandwich I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped it with a bit Kraft Light Mayo with Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and a slice of Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese. Love this Sandwich!

 

 

 

 

For a side I heated up the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and I had a leftover Deviled Egg. Just love these leftovers! It’s sometimes better the second time around! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Cook’s Hams

Semi-Boneless Hams
Classic Reduced Sodium Half (Serves: 15-20)
Half (Serves: 15-20)
Whole (Serves: 30-40)
Semi-Boneless Hams
Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are now fully cooked! This means they may be eaten cold or heated. The ham only needs to be heated through if serving warm.
With fewer bones and less fat, Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are a great value. With two of the three bones removed, carving and serving are much easier. With only the center bone remaining, your family can still can enjoy the great taste and flavor that only a Cook’s bone-in ham can offer, plus the added value of more lean meat and the convenience of less bone.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh 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 Hash Browns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One delicious Breakfast! No Dinner Post last night. I was at the hospital with Mom. She had been having abdomen pains and sick to her stomach the last few days. So I took her to the ER of a local hospital, and as usual we were there all day! From around noon until after 7:00 last night. She’s better today just real tired from the medication. She had a touch of the flu going around and they found a bit of an infection around one of her bowels. But with the Meds and Rest she’ll be fine! So I just grabbed a bite on the run yesterday. But for Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steak 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 opened up another jar of the Canned Green Beans. Just heated them up in a large sauce pan and done! Then I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper 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.
