I was so excited to try it! I looked like something we would order from a menu when out of town. My husband loves steak sandwiches! I had also been told by my sister than everything she had been making out of this cookbook was to die for! This was my first recipe from her book!
However, I should have taken cue from the family. Everyone who had entered into the kitchen during the final cooking stages kept saying, Ew, gross! What stinks in here.
The verdict: Cube Steak is not my thing....or my family's. Not sure I loved the flavor either....seasoned salt seems more of a poultry thing to me. Onion strings were fabulous though...added a dip from Paula Deen for those that were delicious! Confession - I ate the sandwich....the whole thing....pretending to love it in hopes of tantalizing someone to feel the same joy. My cute 4 year old Ryder, gave me some real attempts.So what do you do when you painstakingly prepare a meal for your family and nobody eats it? Tie them to the chair and force feed? A thought I entertained last night as 2 of the 4 kids were crying about it. I had everyone try it ... thank goodness for the onion strings, salad, and fruit.
I have definitely not given up on the Pioneer Woman's cookbook, I will be crossing this one out though (I do that to my cookbooks). Her lasagna is on the menu for today.
Hope Grandmas dog likes cube steak.
