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.

 

 

 

 

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.

Cubed Steak Sandwich 006

 

I made a Egg beater’s Egg White Omelet that I filled with my 3 Bean Buffalo Chili and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Colby – Jack Cheese. I also toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Shortly after that we had to take my Mom’s car to mechanics. The Engine Light has come on and it’s time for an Oil Change and to see what’s causing the light to come on. So I followed there and brought her back home while it was being repaired. On the way back we stopped at Kroger, Mom needed a few items. Back home I didn’t do a whole lot, I’m having lower back problems. If it continues to get worse I’ll be making a trip to the ER or Doctors. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Waffle Fries.

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. The best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. 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 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.

Today’s Menu: Cube Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

 
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.

 

 

I used my absolute favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two, it’s the best Cubed Steak I have ever found or had.

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 Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy.

 
For a side I had some Fingerling Potatoes left so I used them tonight, prepared Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started Sweet Asian Wings fingerling fries 001by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. 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). For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
