ISO Ideas for Beef Cubes

I have a bunch of beef cubes that I got on sale taking up room in my freezer. I got them out for dinner tonight and had planned on making stroganoff, but didn't have all the ingredients.

So now what should I do with them?

Thanks!

Beef stew or pasta sauce with the beef instead of meatballs.

Dice them really small, sautee' them with onions, make a pan gravy from the fond, serve with mashed potatoes or rice. Or even over wide noodles. Sort of an SOS.

I think Addie is right! If you flour them brown them in oil and then "pot roast" them in the oven or braise them on top of the stove you will have the makings of a nice gravy. If you have some cheap red wine that would go well in the braising liquid.

Stir fry with veggies and soy sauce/cornstarch slurry, beef stew, throw in food processor and make your own ground beef for burgers or meatloaf, brown and cook in wine of your choice, cook with onions and cream of something soup, thinly slice and make cheese steaks.

Beef stew. You do not need any ingredients for it. Whatever you have at home will work. Sautee diced onions, add meat, seasoned, sautee meat. Add water, let it cook till done. You can add any vegies you have.

Carne Guisada, the highest calling of cubed beef.

Not knowing what cut of meat the cubes came from you need to braise them in some sort of liquid. Definitely if there is not fat on them.
