That really sounds good! I'm saving the recipe, and will give it a try.

I also love your blue speckled dinnerware.

elaine I, Thanks, hope you enjoy. Debbie

Constance, Thanks. My family sure liked this dish. I'm glad you like my dinnerware. I started using them when I decided to take pictures for my cookbook a while ago. I liked them so much I continued to use them.

Wow that looks good! I've added this to my "to try" list, and it is at the top!

One question though, where in the world did you get cube steaks that thick? The last time I bought "cube steaks" from a meat house, I ended up with "stitch steak". The machine they use to make cube steaks (typically out of a large slice of round) can be fitted with a special blade that will allow you to feed the machine many bits of scrap meat. It presses and tenderizes the meat in two passes, and the action will actually meld all the little pieces together into one large patty/steak. It looks great in the wrapper, but when you go to pick it up, the darn thing falls apart. Still tender and flavorful, but a real pain to cook.

Still, Iíve never seen cubed steak that thick before. Were they special ordered?

Those do look delish. We can get cube steaks like the ones in Ol-blue's pic at our area Kroger and Wal-Mart. Nice and thick and yummy.

Thanks Katie, Iíll check Kroeger this weekend. I just recently started shopping there again (and my card still works!). Iím actually surprised that their prices have lowered a bit since last I was there a few years backs.

Well, lower prices on everything except meat. Then again, Kroeger has always had an exceptional meat counter, and they even carry hard to find items like tri-tip and bison (at least they are hard to find in my area).

During the past 2-3 weeks, Iíve been shopping Kroeger exclusively, and for most things, they are comparable to Wal-Mart except the quality is much better. Iíve been buying baby bella mushrooms for 1.50 per 8oz pack, a real steal. And their produce is amazing for it to be a chain store.

Yes, keltin, we love our Kroger stores. I especially like a cut they call "English roast." It's wonderful for all sorts of things. When it's on sale here, it's about $1.78/pound and I use it for "roast in foil," which you already know about or cut it into stew chunks, all sorts of other beefy ways.
