Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Grilling Burgers………..

Most people really pack the patties tight and then flatten them down too much. A loosely packed patty makes for a juicy hamburger. If you pack your hamburger patties too tight, you run the risk of drying out the meat and making them tough. The only thing you should do to the patty is make an indention in it, with your thumb.This helps the patty hold its shape rather than swelling, as it shrinks during cooking. Also don’t ever flatten or squish your burgers with a spatula while they are grilling. You’ll squeeze out all of those delicious juices.

Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Italian Green Beans

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. 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.




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.







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: Kitchen Closed – Subway Black Forest Ham and Turkey Sub



I had to make some last minute changes for Dinner tonight. I planned on a full menu but we had to go over to where we have Dad for most of the morning and afternoon. Dad was having a very bad day and acting out of control. Feel so sorry for him the Dementia is really taking over his life. Nothing we can do but help him out and try to make it comfortable for him.


So anyway I was dead tired when we finally got home and the last thing I wanted to do is put together Dinner. So it was Subway tonight. I ordered Mom the Subway Club and I had the Subway 6″ Black Forest Ham and Turkey Sub on a 9 grain Wheat Bun w/ Black Olives, Lettuce. The total calories for the sub is 270 calories and 41 net carbs. I added Hellman’s Light Mayo and French’s Yellow Mustard to the Sandwich when I got home. I also had a side of Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
