So. As y’all know from yesterday, the next two weeks are my kitchen purge! It’s going to be nothing but meals made from what I currently have on hand in the kitchen. No grocery store trips. No markets. No Photoshop. Nada. Only what I currently have. I NEED to use this stuff! I have no more room. This could be a dangerous mission, but we’re going in.
In order for this mission to be a success, it’s time to be really diligent in my meal planning as to get the most meals from what I have. That also means it’s time to get really creative in the kitchen.
This was last night’s dinner. I like to affectionately call it, the Italian Redneck. Yes, I AM serious. It’s already gettin’ crazy up in here y’all. I guess I could also call it Cube Steak Parmesan, but I don’t think that has nearly the creative ring to it as an Italian Redneck. Do you? Hey, it’s my kitchen and I call it like I see it. Wait ’till y’all see my “Country Fried Hot Mess” 😉
The Italian Redneck (Cube Steak Parmesan)
- 4-6 cube steaks
- 4 cups Marinara, store bought or home-made
- 2 cups steamed vegetables, I used onions and zucchini
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
- 2 cups seasoned Panko
- 1 cup flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Pasta – cooked
Lightly beat buttermilk with eggs. Bread cube steak by dipping first in flour, then in buttermilk egg mixture, then Panko. Place on a well greased cooking sheet. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Top with cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted. Add steamed veggies to the pasta and place on plates. Top pasta with marinara and steak.
Life is too short to eat ugly food.
Love it all….this wins my heart!!!!!! (Didn’t realize you could bake cube steak!)
Yes ma’am, you can bake it! The buttermilk keeps it really moist and tender. It’s amazing the things you learn when you clean out your kitchen!
You realize that once you have “purged” your kitchen of all these items, it will just be an opportunity to start all over.
