Today’s Menu: Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans

 

 

Cubed Steak baked Potato  Snow 008

 

The forecast went from around 1″ of snow for this Afternoon till Saturday Morning to anywhere from 2″-4″. Then a possible 1″-2″ Saturday Afternoon. But they’re also saying by next Thursday a high of 60 degrees! Come on Spring Weather! For dinner tonight I prepared Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

Cubed Steak baked Potato  Snow 006
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.

 

 

 

 

cubed-steak-003 (1)
Cube Steakcubed
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: Blackened Grouper w/ Buffalo Cauliflower and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 
The forecast called for a Winter Weather Alert and they were right, unfortunately! It started off as freezing rain, a good 2 hours of it. That was mixed with bursts of snow and then followed by snow throughout the night and early morning. We ended up with a little over 6″, so I guess it could have worse. More to come over the weekend again! Our neighbor used his snow blower and scraper to get what he could off the driveway and then I was able to get out and salt it real good. Looking out the window this afternoon, it was a shoveling party up and down the street. For dinner nothing but good things! I prepared Blackened Grouper w/ Buffalo Cauliflower and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

Blacken Grouper  Buffalo Cauliflower 005
I had found another package of the Gulf Coast Grouper in the freezer so I laid that in the fridge to thaw overnight. A friend of mine who goes down to the gulf Side of Florida quite often always brings me back some of his fresh caught Grouper. I started by rinsing the fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it into smaller pieces. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning and Sea Salt. Then I got out my favorite skillet, The Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated I added my Grouper. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! This fish is just soooo good, hard to describe! Moist and bursting with flavor. The Zatarain’s Seasonings are perfect for any Seafood.

 

 

 
For one side dish I made more of the Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower. I made this for the first time a while back and couldn’t wait to have it again! To prepare it I needed; 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup or more) hot sauce, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping. Then to make it is really easy I just tossed the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arranged in a single layer on a baking sheet and roasted in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Then, the good part, toss the cauliflower in the hot sauce. Serve it warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side. It’s one delicious and healthy side dish! I left the full recipe along with the Closet Cooking web site link to the original recipe.

 

 

 
Then for the other side dish I heated up a cn of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, I can never have enough of Green Beans! I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert my Mom had prepared some Fried Apples for her and Dad this morning for their Breakfast, so I get the leftovers! Fried Apples are easy to make, Mom uses Brown Sugar Splenda, but none taste as good as Mom can make!

Buffalo Bone in Ribeye Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and ….

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Bone in Ribeye Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Green Beans w/ Potatoes

 

Bone In Buffalo Rib Eye 003

 
Another below zero morning to start the day, minus 7. The day didn’t warm up any at all, it may have hit the teens but the wind chill kept it around zero. Went to the store early this morning since I probably won’t be able to do it over the weekend due to more snow coming. After that I came home and I wanted to get this last snowfall off the driveway and salted before the next one comes in later tonight. Even in a wheelchair shoveling snow is a workout, and a pain the butt! Done for the day until dinner. For dinner I prepared a Wild Idea Buffalo Bone in Ribeye Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Green Beans w/ Potatoes.

 

 

Bone In Buffalo Rib Eye 004
This was my last Bone in Buffalo Ribeye Steak (Cowboy Steak). I had ordered a Wild Idea Holiday Package of Buffalo, which included 2 – T-Bone Buffalo Steaks, 2 – 16 oz. Bone-In Ribeye Steaks, 2 Packs of 1/4 lb. Buffalo Burger Patties, and a 1 lb. Package of Buffalo Brats. What a beautiful cut of meat the Ribeye are! It’s about 1 1/2″ thick with just enough of marbling to make it perfect. To prepare it I rubbed it with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I pan fried it using a Cast Iron Skillet that I preheated on medium heat. When it was ready I placed the Ribeye in the pan and on the first side fried it about 4 1/2 minutes then flipping it to the other side for another 4 1/2 minutes. I then removed it from the pan and let it set covered with foil for 7 minutes. I had it an internal temperature of 140 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect. So moist and tender and with that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. Way to big for one meal as the other one was, I’ll have the leftover for breakfast or lunch tomorrow. Thank you Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

 
For one side I had some Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms. Sateed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with Sea Salt, Dried Rosemary, Dried Thyme, Roasted Ground Cumin, and a 1/2 Pat of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also heated a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans with Potatoes. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. Great sides to go with one mouth-watering Bone in Buffalo Ribeye Steak. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunks.

The Ribeye cap and bone add the extra richness to this cut. Our Bone-In Ribeyes make for a perfect presentation, and luckily they aren’t just for cowboys. Our bone-in ribeye was a featured winner of the 2012 Cooking Light Artisan Products Award. Cut to 16 oz. each.

Pork Roast  New Potatoes  Carrots 004

 
I’m so glad I was able to get the driveway cleared of ice and snow yesterday, so it could snow 3″ overnight and I have to do it again! Had some help today though from my neighbors, a lot easier. It was a wet snow though so it was easy to clear everything again. It was a comfort food dinner tonight, I prepared a Roasted Pork Tenderloin w/ New Potatoes, Sliced Carrots, and Wheat Bread.

 

 

 

Pork Roast  New Potatoes  Carrots 002
I had a Meijer Pork Tenderloin in the freezer that I had layed in the fridge overnight to thaw. It was a 1 1/2 size Roast and it came marinated in Olive Oil and Garlic. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and I also topped it with Pineapple Rings and a couple of tablespoons of Pineapple Juice. Preheated the oven to 350 degrees and Roasted it for about 38 minutes, till an internal temperature reached 145 degrees. I then let it rest in its own juices for 5 minutes to finish the cooking process. It came out so moist and full of flavor! The combo of the olive Oil, Garlic and Pineapple is perfect with Pork. Esay and delicious recipe for a Pork Tenderloin.

 

 

 
For one side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. First time I’ve tried the Del Monte Whole New Potatoes, turned out really good as all Del Monte Products do. I also had a can of Meijer Brand Sliced Carrots that I heated up and a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then for dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.

Today’s Menu: Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato, Green Beans, French Bread

 

 

 
A beautiful Winters day out today, in the 30’s but lots of Sunshine! My friends who go to Florida just got back and called to tell me that they had some Red Snapper but no Grouper this time. Grouper is out of season right now and if you catch any they have to be returned., but fresh Red Snapper will do! For dinner tonight Meijer Cubed Steak, my favorite Cubed Steak by far. I prepared Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato, Green Beans, French Bread.

Cubed Steak Baked Potato 005

 

 
I normally don’t eat Beef, I prefer Buffalo, but I make an exception for the Meijer Cubed Steak. They’re were good size patties so I cut them in half and have 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. These come out so delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. Topped with Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 
For one side I had a Baked Potato that I topped with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread that I topped with Sesame Seeds. Then for dessert later a Weight Watchers Vanilla Fudge Swirl Ice Cream Cone.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Grouper w/ Cut Green Beans, Sliced Carrots, and Wheat Bread

 

 

 

Well our high for the day was at 7:00 this morning, it was 2 degrees. It’s been going down ever since. It’s at minus 5 degrees with a wind chill ranging from minus 20 to minus 40 degrees! So welcome to the frozen Tundra we call West Chester, Ohio! We had to go pick my Mom’s car up at the shop this afternoon and it took heating the car keys up several times before we were finally able to unlock the door. I don’t mind the cool weather but this is out of control. From what they say the frigid cold is here most of the week. Minus 5 tomorrow for a high. All you can do is go on and make the best of it. For Breakfast I started off with a Sunnyside Up Egg, Turkey Goetta, and Toast. The more I have the Turkey Goetta the more I love this stuff! Then for dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Grouper w/ Cut Green Beans, Sliced Carrots, and Wheat Bread.

 

Blackened Grouper Carrots Green Beans 001

 
Last night before I went to bed I laid the last bag of my Gulf Coast Grouper Fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. A friend of mine who goes down to the gulf Side of Florida quite often always brings me back some of his fresh caught Grouper. These are always some of the finest tasting Grouper I’ve ever had! I started by rinsing the fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it into smaller pieces. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning and Sea Salt. Then I got out my favorite skillet, The Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated I added my Grouper. Cooked it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! This fish is just soooo good, hard to describe! Moist and bursting with flavor. My friend who brings me the Grouper is in Florida right now, I hope the Grouper are biting!

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I also heated up a small can of Walmart Brand Sliced Carrots. Served with a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread and an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice-Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Fillet w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Green Beans, and Baked Potato

 

Buffalo Terris Major 001

 

About 33 degrees this morning but it’s been dropping ever since. Went to the store early to pick up a few items and then had to take my Dad to the Doctor, he has a lot of heavy congestion. Not good for a person that’s 92. They took some x-rays and waiting for the results tomorrow to see exactly what it is. For dinner tonight I prepared a Wild Idea Buffalo Terres Major Fillet w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Green Beans, and Baked Potato.

 

 

 

This is always the tenderest cut of Buffalo Steak I can find, and one of the most delicious cuts also! I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 4 minutes per side, which gives you a perfect medium rare! The steak is so tender with just an incredible flavor. As with all the Wild Idea Buffalo cuts it has a slight sweet taste and so tender a knife isn’t really needed!

 

 

 

For a side dish I made some Sauteed Mushrooms. I’ve been using Green Giant Sliced Mushrooms. Really like these, nice taste and keeps so good in a jar. I sautéed them in Extra Virgin olive Oil and a pat of I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Parsley Flakes, and Dried Thyme. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and had a Baked Potato. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Diced New Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

Haddock Carrots Potatoes 005

Lets talk about Grapes, White Seedless Grapes! Beyond any shadow of a doubt this year’s supply of the White Seedless Grapes has been the best I’ve ever tasted, along with being the biggest and juiciest . All year the Grapes we’ve been buying at local stores has just been incredible. Really going to miss them when they run out this crop of them. For dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Diced New Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I prepared some more of the excellent Haddock I’ve been buying from our local Kroger Seafood Department. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Then sliced the fillet into four pieces. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. I pan fried them in Canola Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Delicious! Haddock and Zatarain’s is a good combo!

 

 

For side dishes, as it is a lot of times, it was all Del Monte. I heated up a small can of Sliced Carrots and also some Del Monte Diced New Potatoes. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert tonight a Mini Banana along with a couple of slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

Today’s Menu: Sauteed Mushroom Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Crinkle FriesGreat Range Bison Burger 004

 

 

 

Not much going on today. I even took a rare afternoon siesta which I hardly ever do. I did go to a local farmers Vegetable stand nearby here and picked up a Watermelon and Cantaloupe up for my Mom and Dad. I can eat either but never been a huge fan of either. For dinner I prepared a Sauteed Mushroom Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

 

I used Great Range Ground Bison to make my Burger. My favorite is Wild Idea Buffalo but I have a lot of the Great Range Bison in the freezer that I have to use. It’s always a good product but it doesn’t have the taste to it as Wild Idea Buffalo does. Anyway I made my pattie and seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I pan fried it in Canola Oil and fried it about 4 minutes per side, a good medium rare with a char on the outside and a little pink in the center. Makes a delicious juicy burger! I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun and topped with Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms.

 

 

To go with my Burger I had Baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Made a perfect and healthier Burger and Fries. Healthier by using Bison over Beef, by using a Whole Grain Bun, and by Baking the Fries instead of a deep fry. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

 

I hit the stores early this morning and loaded up on Fish and Produce. Found some great buys on Walleye and Lake Perch at a local Fried Walleye 004Meijer along with some Mini Bananas, honey Crisp Apples, and sliced Celery and Carrots for some healthy snacking. For dinner, Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

I think Walleye overall is the family favorite, my Moms not a huge Fish eater but really enjoys Walleye. After rinsing the fillets off I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and then rolled them in a mix of Flour and Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs. I fried the fillets about 4 minutes per side, until golden brown, in Canola Oil. The taste of Walleye is just incredible! Their mild tasting and so fresh. The Flour and Bread Crumbs provide a perfect crust.

 

To go with the Walleye I prepared some Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Green Beans for myself and the Potatoes and Macaroni and Cheese for my parents. Simply Potatoes has various Potato products and all of them make great side dishes, all are fresh too. The Green Beans were a Del Monte single serving can that I warmed up and the Mac and Cheese was a box of Kraft Mac and Cheese. I also had Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Light Bread. For dessert/snack tonight Celery and Carrot slices with Litehouse Light Ranch Vegetable Dip.

They make the perfect side dish to go from skillet to table. We’ve already done all the washing, peeling, dicing and spicing so you don’t have to.
