I Forgot to Mention...

Yesterday, I referred to "cube steaks". It dawned on me that some readers may have no clue what they are. I looked it up on Wikipedia and found this definition. Personally, the buddy burner camping disaster is and was my only experience with this "cut" of beef. I can see no use for it; it's ridiculously chewy and reasonably tasteless. I found this link which pretty much sums up my opinion of this meat form as follows "Cube steak is simply round steak that’s been pulverized a bit to make it more tender. There’s no doubt that this economical cut of beef can help save money on groceries, but the challenge is how to cook it so that’s not only edible–but tasty too."
The article included recipes if anyone is interested. Frankly, if I want beef, I'll save up some money and buy fillet mignons at Costco rather than buy a cheap cut like this. Yes, I am a beef snob. Heck, I'd rather eat chicken or eggs if I want a cheap, tasty meal rather than throw money away on chewy tasteless beef. Anyhow, just adding my two cents here for the record.

Hi I'm from Georgia and we love cube steak :)
We salt,pepper, and batter it with flour. We fry it and usually serve it with a white pepper gravy. It's so good. When we don't have gravy he will put A-1 steak sauce on his.

Hi Stacey, Thanks so much for the info on cube steaks!!! I was raised in Wisconsin and Chicago and had very limited exposure so I really appreciate any info on this! I mean, if it is loved by lots, there's a good reason; I was just never exposed as such! Thank you so much for sharing and your comment! I'll have to take a further look into this, especially given the economy!!! Thanks my dear for your comment. P.S. Forward any recipes and I'll happily publish them on this little blog! :)

Hi Stacey,
Thanks so much for your last comment on the length of divorces...it actually felt like a hug from an unknown but kindred soul! If you can spare a prayer or wish to send this way, I'd be forever thankful. I'm right at a "make it or break it" point in life. I'd whine more but it wouldn't do either of us any good. Thank you sooooo much for your kind thoughts!! Hugs, C :)
