Cubed steak was one of my least favorite meals growing up (keep in mind it’s a cheap cut of meat, and my parents didn’t help by grilling it to a char and serving it with my childhood nemesis, ketchup). Regardless, I haven’t really seen it much in the grocery store around here. When I spotted it in the store recently, and saw a recipe blog that I generally like also had a recipe for it, I figured I’d give it a try. I thought this recipe was quite good – John liked the flavors but not really the cut of meat, which I get. Pictured with a parmesan wedge, recipe to follow.
Note: I’ve been traveling, and I’m a few weeks behind on recipe uploading, to the point where I’m having trouble remembering specifics for a couple of made-up recipes. We’ll see how it goes catching up.
I was happy that I actually made corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day this year (I had intentions to do so last year and had to go into emergency back surgery). The pressure cooker was an easy way to approach this. I am never super into the cabbage/vegetable portions of this dish, but these sure make amazing sandwiches the next day.
A hit from the Japanese cooking challenge. Simple, a little sweet, very homey. From my cookbook “Tokyo Cult Recipes.” If we made it again, we’d use shaved beef.
