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.

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.

 

 

Cubed Steak w White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Bea 002

 

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!

 

 

Cubed Steak w White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Bea 001

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.

 

 

 

Cubed Steak w White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Cut Italian Bea 003
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.

Cubed Steak Sandwich w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Pot 008
Cool and rainy morning to start. Had a light Breakfast and headed out to Kroger to pick up a couple of items for tomorrow night’s dinner. Back home did some laundry and then some house cleaning. Then we still had a couple of chairs and outside table that I moved into the shed for the Winter, it’s getting to be that time of year! For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potatoes.

 

 

Cubed Steak Sandwich Beef 001

I rarely use Beef anymore but when I do it’s usually my favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer 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. To prepare them 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 Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. I’ll have the other half for breakfast in the morning.

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 002
Then for one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. My Aunt had grown some in her garden and brought us over some last Summer and loved them. Then just the other day while at Kroger I came across the Allens Cut Italian Green Beans, so I bought 4 cans of them. Prepared 1 can the other night. 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.

 

 

 

Pan Fried Flounder w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potat 007
Then for another side I heated up the leftover Del Monte Whole New Potatoes from the other night’s dinner. Just reheated and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Cubed Steak Sandwich w Fried Polenta and Vegetarian Baked Beans 006

Cold morning out there again, 27 degrees! But it was another cool and sunny Fall day out. Started off my day with a Egg White Scrambled Egg on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also I had some Eckrich Turkey Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not a bad way to kick-start my day! Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom and cleaned up some leaves outside. After that it’s Sunday and it’s NFL Football for the rest of the afternoon! For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Fried Polenta and Vegetarian Baked Beans.

 
I rarely use Beef anymore but when I do it’s usually my absolute favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Cubed Steak. When I Cubed Steak Sandwich Beef 001go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two.

Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. I’ll have the other half for breakfast in the morning.

 
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 my Polenta7last 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.

 

 

Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w Vegetarian Baked Beans 012
Then for another side I opened up a small can of Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans. I had tried these in a dish I prepared a while back and fell in love with the flavor and taste of the Vegetarian Beans! Only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving. To prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Beans, becoming my favorite real quick. A simple but delicious dinner tonight! For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Dark Chocolate Mousse Cup.

This morning I started off with Ham and Scrambled Egg on a Healthy Choice Whole Grain English Muffin. Along Cube Steak Sandwich w Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes 003with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After breakfast got a couple of loads of laundry done for Mom. Outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the house. We have a wooden ramp leading into the kitchen door and under the ramp we have a Mama Rabbit with 5 little ones, they peek out from time to time. After cleaning had some free time and got the 4 wheel cart out to enjoy another beautiful day out there again. Very hot weather moving in though with high humidity, 3 or more days where the highs will be mid 90’s and the heat index well over 100 degrees. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Cube Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.

Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area, only 1 store around here locally that sells them (Thank you Jungle Jim’s).

Another day of high humidity with a lot of rain today. Had a bout with the Phantom Pains overnight and didn’t get a whole lot of sleep, finally let up early this morning. Caught up on some sleep during the afternoon. Those pains really take it out of me, sure wish they would come up with a cure or a way to stop them. Mom is having dinner with Dad tonight at the rehab unit tonight. So for my dinner tonight its a Cubed Steak (Topped with Mushroom Brown Gravy) Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

A lot of rain the past day or so, we even have a Flood Alert issued for the County. Did get a break from the rains in the afternoon though and the sun even came out for a while.

I also baked a serving of the Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Then for dessert later/snack later, sliced Cracker Barrel 2% Cheese with Ritz Whole Wheat Crackers.

 

 

 

Cube Steakcubed-steak-003 (1)

 

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[who?] 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 Fries

 

 

 
Not a bad day out today. Still windy but sunny and in the 50’s though. Maybe more snow coming tomorrow. I actually got my first full night of sleep for the first time in quite a while. Feeling a lot better today, glad the sinus infection ran its course! Went to the store for Mom and picked up a few things for her. For dinner tonight its a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

Mushrooms Cubed Steak Sandwich 008

I used the Meijer Cubed Steak. The best Cubed Steak I have ever found or had. I purchased some earlier last year and been buying them ever since! It’s about the only Beef I ever have, normally it’s Buffalo, Fish, Chicken, 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. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

 

I also baked a serving of the Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Then for dessert later, while curled up in my favorite chair watching the classic movie “The Natural”, a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
