Every year we have a beef butchered. We live on a beef farm, so I guess you could say that is one of the advantages. One of my favorite dishes growing up that my mom used to make was cube steak with mashed potatoes and gravy…but I always struggled to find other recipes that use cube steak. While I love cube steak and gravy, you can only eat so much of it! This recipe for cube steak sandwiches is one of my husband’s favorites….and mine too!
We eat a lot of meat and, since I’m not the best at meal planning, I’m always relieved that there is meat in our deep freezer. I would be making a lot of trips to the grocery store if we didn’t! However, I always feel like the biggest junk food junkie there is and wonder what people think when they peek in my grocery cart (Come on, you all know we do it!). A lot of the veggies we eat come from our garden, so most of the items in my cart are snacks and condiments!
This sandwich is one of my farmer husband’s faves and after working in the cold all day it is sure to warm his belly. In the picture above they were installing field tile on the farm I grew up on. Under the soil there is tile that helps get the water where it needs to go so it doesn’t stand in the fields. Standing water can damage crops and decrease yields. Sometimes tile can become damage or broken, so it needs to be repaired, or simply more tile needs to be added. When the crops are out of the field in winter is the perfect time to do this, although sometimes the weather isn’t ideal….you have to dress for the weather!
Anywho, back to this sandwich which was inspired by The Pioneer Woman..
