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.

 

 

 
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.

While at Meijer a while back I came across the most tender and delicious Cubed Steak I had ever had. I’ve 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 had 1 for dinner and the other half for breakfast. 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.

 

 

 
For one side I had a Baked Potato that I seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunks Cup.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Fried Cubed Pork Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes, White Gravy, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Biscuits

Cubed Pork Steak 006

 

Happy First Day of Autumn Everybody! And what a perfect Fall Day it’s been! About 42 and sunny this morning and a high of 68 and sunshine all day. Went to my Aunt’s 82nd Birthday Party this afternoon. She’s in assisted living but she’s doing pretty good. Good to see a lot of the family, and all their kids who are getting big. Then for dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Fried Cubed Pork Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes, White Gravy, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Biscuits. Nothing like a good old Country Dinner on a Sunday!

 

 

I had a package of Walmart Cubed Pork Steak in the freezer that I had laid out in the fridge overnight to thaw. Had the big three to bread them with; Flour, EggBeater’s, and Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Flour with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then seasoned the Egg Beater‘s with Hungarian Sweet Paprika and used Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I first rolled the Cubed Steaks in the seasoned Flour, shaking off the excess. Next I dipped them in the seasoned Egg Beater’s again shaking off the excess. The final step was to roll them in the Italian Style Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides were well covered. When that’s complete I pan fried them in a medium size skillet, in Canola Oil. Fried them until both sides were Golden Brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. They came out the perfect Golden Brown on the outside and moist and flavorful on the inside! I like using the Pork Cubed Steaks over the Beef, their more tender, less stringy, and healthier.

 

 

 

For side dishes I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare them just heat them up in the microwave for 6 minutes or so and their 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. I also boiled some Mini carrots and baked a small container of Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Layer Biscuits. Whole Grain Bread would have been fewer calories but Biscuits with this Dinner is perfect! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Fried Cubed pork Steak and White Pepper Gravy w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas

Chicken Fried Cubed Pork Steak 008

 

 

 

Just an incredible beautiful day out today! A slight cool breeze and about 80 degrees and sunny. Got out early and stopped by an old friends and caught up with what’s been going on with him and stopped by my cousins and they were having a huge garage sale starting today through Sunday. Sat around there for a while and back home. One relaxing day! For dinner I prepared a Chicken Fried Cubed pork Steak and White Pepper Gravy w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas.

 

 

I had tried the Cubed Pork Steak from Walmart a while back and liked it way better than Beef Cubed Steak, a lot more tender and stays very moist. To prepare it I used the Big Three in Chicken Fried Steak, Flour, Seasoned Egg Wash (Egg Beater’s Seasoned with Hungarian Paprika), and Seasoned Italian Style Bread Crumbs (Progresso Bread Crumbs Seasoned with Garlic Powder). Rolled the Cubed Steaks in the Flour, dipped it in the Egg Wash Mixture, and rolled it in the Bread Crumbs. I then pan fried them in Canola Oil until browned on both sides, about 3 – 4 minutes per side. These came out flat out delicious! A perfect golden crust well seasoned and the Pork tender and moist. Served it topped with White Peppered Gravy, Pioneer White Peppered Gravy Mix.

Ready to fry!

 Made two side dishes to go with Cubed Pork Steaks, Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas. I used Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, by far my favorite Mashed Potatoes. Easy to prepare, just heat a total of 6 minutes in the microwave, and delicious and creamy. The Sugar Snap Peas were Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas. Another microwave wonder, just heat 2 minutes and serve! One hearty meal! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.
