How to Cook Cube Steak - Chicken Or Beef?

When you mention meat, there are two things people will think of. First, there is chicken and second, beef. Many like the beef because it can be served rare and for those who like more tender meat, chicken is their choice. Despite its wide availability, many people still don't know how to cook these two items. So, for the benefit of the reader, this article is going to show you how.

Firstly, how to cook a cube steak? Well, you will need to know which part of the cow you'll have to buy at the butcher's. It is taken from the hip and is best tenderized before cooked. Use an electric tenderizer or a normal one if you prefer an old-fashioned bashing. Make sure you tenderize it until it looks not unlike a hamburger patty.

Then, prepare the ingredients while allowing the steak to sit for a while. You will need half a can of water, 2 medium-sized onions, 1 can of celery soup or cream of mushroom, 2 tablespoon of oil, half a cup of catsup, peeled garlic, salt and pepper.

Heat up the oil in the pan and while you are waiting, rub the garlic, salt and pepper on the cube steaks. Ensure that they are covered all over. When you're done, fry them in hot oil, not more than two at a time, unless they are really small. Then, put the steaks on a pan and add the onions. Mix water, soup and catsup together and pour them over the steaks. Simmer for 40 minutes under low heat.

If you feel like baking a chicken, do not tenderize the meat. You will only need salt, pepper, olive oil (for the health-conscious) and any marinade of your choice. You have to prepare the chicken before baking it by rinsing it in cold water thoroughly. Add the salt and pepper, and massage it with olive oil. At this point, you can add in any herbs that you think will go well, such as oregano or rosemary.

Once you preheated the oven to 350 degrees, place an uncovered baking dish with the chicken in it. Bake at the aforementioned temperature for 90 minutes. To make sure it is done, wait until the skin is golden brown and insert a thermometer into its thickest area. It should read somewhere around 170 degrees. Also, when you cut it, the meat should not be pink and the juice clear.

There you go! With these instructions for baking chicken and how to cook cube steaks, your meal should be perfect if you followed them to the letter.
