Cubed Steak Parmesan from Food on the Table


How was your weekend, everybody? We made it through a double ear infection, a case of the flu, a five mile run, a homemade picnic table (my Quiet Man can build), a job offer, and a party for 16. Hello-world, we're home from vacation!
But now it's Monday, and in just a few hours every person under my humble roof will be asking me what is for dinner. (A dangerous question on a Monday-don't they ever learn?) Aha-I've got a new weapon in my dinnertime arsenal! A couple of posts ago, I wrote about a great website called Food on the Table. It's such a great shortcut for planning meals, saving money and menu planning. Food on the Table organizes store specials for you and offers you customized recipes that highlight sale items and your personal cravings. I may not always follow the recipes exactly-I'm kind of a shoot from the hip kind of gal, but I love having some ideas generated that correspond with the weekly specials. (I'm just going to tell the kids to long on themselves and tell me what's for dinner!)
This week, Food on the Table told me that my grocery store had cube steak on sale. I probably would have thrown it on the grill like I usually do, but Food On the Table recommended a recipe for Cubed Steak Parmesan. Yum! I've had chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan, but I've never had cubed steak parmesan. It was soooo yummy- a bit like a cross between a meatball and chicken parmesan. Coat the meat in egg and dip it in parmesan & breadcrumbs (the actual recipe used crushed saltine crackers), then brown it in a skillet. Finish it off in the oven and pour over some red sauce (I made a homemade tomato an basil) and a smattering of mozzarella and parmesan.
It was absolutely fantastic with a swirl of pasta and bit of fresh, green salad. And best of all? The pasta, parmesan, mozzarella, and steak were all on sale, so I made about 8 servings for around 10 bucks. What's for dinner tonight at your house?

I jumped on to try Food on the Table, but they don't have any grocery stores in my area. I like the idea of helping you shop sales, but I think it would be cool if you could plug in your own recipes and they could alert you when the items for your meals were on sale. Did that make sense? That way you could keep making your tried and true favorites, only cheaper.

I am curious to hear how you end up liking all the recipes they provide. Keep us posted.

Yum!!! This is my kind of food and it looks delicious!

Julie-
You actually can plug in your own recipes. I don't know that I ever would take the time to do that just because I am L-A-Z-Y, but don't tell anyone, OK? That's a good idea to use your recipes as a jumping off point for sale alerts. If you click on all the foods that you like on one of the entry pages, they'll tell you each week when they are on sale. ON another note, I wish I was camping with you guys on Lake Wisconsin-I mean Michigan this week. It looked so beautiful!

Seth and Julie said...

Oh, you can put in your own recipes. Very cool! It wouldn't let me get far enough to find that out because there weren't any stores for me to choose from. I'll check back in a few months. I am sure they are always adding stores.
