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

 

 

Started off the morning with a Poached Egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I had this for Breakfast yesterday and it was so good I’m having it again! Beautiful day out here today. Well the deck is all done and it turned out great. Mom bought a new table for the deck and I put that together today. Caught up on all the cleaning so I got the cart out for a while and took a spin around the neighborhood and down by the lake. 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 I’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 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 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 Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

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: Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

 
It was Jennie -O Turkey Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and a slice of toasted Healthy Life panko-crusted-cubed-pork-steak-gravy-mashed-potatoes-green-bn-002Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Meijer had been out of the Jennie – O Turkey Sausage links for quite a while but they finally had them back stock the other day. Right after Breakfast I had to go to Walmart for a couple of items, ended up with more than what I went for! I noticed Walmart had added quite a few new items, that’s a good thing. Not too bad out there today, 42 degrees and partly sunny. Cleaned the house today, ran the vacuum, dusted, etc. After Lunch I was in a Boggle Word Tournament online. Love playing Boggle. Ended up finishing in the top ten out of 72 people, not too bad. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 
I bought a of packages of Cubed Pork Steak at Kroger the other day. So I got the big three out to bread it with; Flour,Egg Beater’s, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Steak with Sea Salt and Black Ground Pepper. Next I Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak 001seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika and rolled the Cube Pork in that and shook off the excess. Then I dipped it in the Egg Beater’s shaking off the excess and then pressed both sides in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides was well covered. I heated up a medium size skillet, that I drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, on medium high heat. Added my Cubed Pork and fried both sides about 4 minutes per side, till each side was golden brown. Topped it with some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. The Cubed Pork Steak came out delicious! Moist and very tender with a good flavor from the Paprika and all the other ingredients. As you can tell in the picture, the Steaks are huge so I cut them half, I’ll have the other half for Breakfast in the morning.

 
For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. Topanko-crusted-cubed-pork-steak-w-gravy-mashed-potatoes-and-gre-002 prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. To top my Mashed Potatoes and Cubed Pork Steak I made some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. Another quick and easy prep and comes out piping hot and delicious. I topped both my Mashed Potatoes and Cubed Steak with it. Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. One delicious Country Comfort Food Dinner tonight, just love Gravy! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

It was Jennie -O Turkey Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, and a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out, amazing how quickly leaves and twigs gather around our deck and driveway! So I cleaned off those areas. Inside I put up some new plastic molding on the corners of room entrances. Having a Hoveround mobility chair in close quarters the molding is a must! After that watched some College Football up until Dinner. And for dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

Then for a side I baked some Alexia 98% Fat Free Roasted Straight Cut Fries with Sea Salt. First time trying these. I’ve been using the Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries but came across these at Jungle Jim’s Market last week and wanted to give them a try! To prepare them I baked them at 425 degrees for 17 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, another excellent Fry from Alexia! For dessert later a SO Delicious Mini Ice Cream Sandwich.

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.

Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak 008
Rain, a whole of rain! They say we should end up with around 2 inches or more. Possible turning to snow overnight. It was Jennie -O Turkey Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, and a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Finished up some laundry for Mom and did some light cleaning. After lunch I dropped of a couple of boxes of packaged Crackers and Chips to the Oncology Treatment Center here in West Chester. Good to munch on something while being treated, it always helped me. Then dropped off a few cases of canned goods at a local food shelter. For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

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.

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.

 

 

 
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”). Cubed Steak Sandwich w New Potatoes 001Many 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!

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.
