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.
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 Cuber Steak and looked delicious, so why not give it a try!
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.
I first put the flour into a pie pan and added the Spices and mixed with a fork. To prepare it I
For a side dish I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, just microwave for 6 minutes total.

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.
