Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cream Style Skillet Corn

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and served.And had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it was back to the rainy and humid weather, 85 degrees. Very bad day with my allergies! Been a tough Spring and Summer on everyone with allergies. Did a little housework and then rest. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cream Style Skillet Corn.

 

 

When I went to Meijer last week 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.

 

 

 

 

 


For a 2nd side dish I prepared a can of Glory – Seasoned Cream Style Skillet Corn. It had been awhile since I’ve had this. To prepare it just emptied the can into a sauce pan and heated to a boil. Reduced the heat, to a low simmer and continued heating until heated through. If you like Corn you’ll love this Glory Corn! Very good Corn side dish. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

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/ 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.

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

 

 


To start my Saturday morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I was hungry! Sunny and 47 degrees out but not windy as it has been. It was house cleaning today, dusted and ran the sweeper. Later on cleaned and straightened up the pantry. 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 2 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 seasoned 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. I prepared both Cubed Steaks. I’ll have the other one for a couple of Lunches.

 

 


For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To 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. Comfort Food Dinner Heaven tonight! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

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: 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.

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.
