There is a Fish restaurant at home called Catfish Cove. On Sunday they have a buffet, the food is delicious and a lot like eating at home. (we like eating there but another incentive, our GS Luke, buses tables there.) I love beef, but because of all the negative press the beef has gotten, we eat much more chicken.
(How long do I do this?)
When we do go to the Buffet on Sunday I love their cube steak and gravy over rice or mashed potatoes. The cube steak is so tender it melts in your mouth and always breaks with a fork. In Belmont, we have company most days for supper, any of the Grands & sons who want to, drop in.
So I want to try the cube steak and gravy. I was thinking maybe they pressure cook the steak before or after they fry it, does anyone know if that is done (can’t find it on the net). Most of the recipes (on the net) says brown the meat, then cover and cook in the liquid (or gravy) for a couple hours. The recipes swear it is VERY tender. Do any of you guys cook the cubed steak like that?
Also I could use a good gravy recipe. Sherry makes great gravy and will, if I ask her. When I try TO DO like she does I MAKE A MESS, I mean a MESS, flour every where and I burn something! (I don’t like scraping all the ‘what u callit’ off the pan to mix with flour & milk.) I may just have to defer the gravy to her. Unless someone has a very simple, great gravy.
The cube steak sounds like a simple way to feed a bunch of folk. Sherry does the down home: beans, cornbread and salmon patties. She also does Spaghetti. I do a lot of pressure cooking chicken and stew beef and rice.
Any hints for simple big meals. feeding 6-10. I try to keep cheese & Ham for sandwiches if we run short, haven’t had to use it yet. Feeding the crew is sorta fun. It is good for us to visit because we aren’t around that much, so it is not a big problem.
(sometimes, things just bug you!)
Thanks for listening and I will appreciate any hints or helps.
