Quick help for tonight's dinner
 
I have a cube steak marinateing right now. I have read that this cut of meat get's more tender the longer you cook it, such as stews, but the same article says that the options for cooking are broil, grill, saute, and stir fry. All of these are quick cooking. How do you think the best way of cooking this would be for the meat to be most tender? I am planning on having it in the marinade for at least 2 hours. I do not have the ingredients to make a stew with this, I was just planning on serving the meat with some steamed brocalli.

Well, since you don't have the ingredients to make a stew then it looks like your only options are the quick cooking methods that you listed. Just ensure that you rest the meat for a short while after cooking it.

What did you marinate it with?

Iornchef, it's a lawry's pre-made marinade. It's called steak and chop with garlic and cracked black pepper, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, soy sauce, mustard, paprika, caraway, and tumeric are the main ingredients.

Did you cook it yet? It's probably already too late for braising but don't cook it past medium rare if you grill or saute it.

Cube steak has been mechanically tenderized so that shouldn't be a problem. Use any quick cooking method that you like for steaks and enjoy.

Well, the boyfriend didn't get home until 10:30 and by then it was just too late to fix, so I put it into the frige and will cook it today. I have a feeling the marinade might be a little too strong now, but I'll give it a try and see what happens. At least it is a cheap cut of meat. Thanks for all the help.

It should be fine today.

abj, wish I had something good to say about cube steak. Tried it years ago, & as I recall, it's such a thin cut, minute steak, doubt it needs marinating. The recipe I tried, was from a mag -- a stuffing/veg mixture was rolled up inside the cubed steak. All the ingreds were great, but didn't like the taste of cubed steak. Let us know what you come up with... but, honestly, after my taste experience with cubed steak, I hesitate to try it again.

Best thing I can think of, is to make it a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, and bury it in cheese, onions and peppers on a thick roll.

Try this:

Brown the cube steak and set it aside. Sauté some onions and mushrooms in a skillet. Add some sour cream and tomato or V8 Juice and simmer for a few minutes. Return the steaks to the pan to reheat. Serve over egg noodles.
