Isn't it what I said? "add water"...

You are what you eat.

Paint dots on them with Kitchen Bouquet and start a crap game.

Welcome to Western New York, where the only kind of weather we have is inclement!

lol, s.l.o.b.

my first thought was souvlaki. souvlaki is another term for kebab made with all meat.

marinate the cubes in garlic, oregano, lemon, s&p, sugar, and olive oil. if you like lamb and happened to have saved it, add the fat from frenched lamb chops or a lamb roast to inject another level of flavour. it will tastes somewhere between lamb and beef, and is much cheaper than all lamb.

skewer cubes and charcoal grill until medium rare to medium.

serve with a grilled pita and salad of greens, tomatoes, cukes, onions, green peppers, feta cheese, and kalamata olives dressed in evoo and red wine vinegar.
Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

They don't have to remain as cubes. You can lay them out on your cutting board and beat the snot out of them until they are flattened, dredge in flour, brown in olive oil, add onions, garlic, canned tomatoes, seasonings of your choice, and simmer it all up for a tomato sauce. Toss in your favorite hot, cooked pasta and there you go.

Thanks guys, I ended up doing a combination of things. I pan seared about a pound of seasoned cubes for lunches today, and then I used the remaining two pounds to make a big pot of beef stew, so dinner is done tonight too! Thanks so much for all the responses!

Happy Cooking!!
