Recipe: Cube Steak Cheese Burgers
You will need
1 pack cube steak (comes 3 to a pack, I found mine on sale for about $1.60)
Hamburger buns or rolls
Your favorite cheese
Sides (I did frozen green beans (16 cents a serving) and sweet potato fries (52 cents a serving)
Salt and Pepper
To cook the cube steak I coated in some flour, salt, and pepper. Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet over high heat. Once the pan is extremely hot put in the cube steak (you should hear a loud sizzle). Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until the juices run mostly clear. Top with cheese and put a lid over the pan so the steam will quickly melt the cheese. Remove from heat and serve on your choice of bun.
I had never tried this recipe before today and from what I found the taste and texture of the cube steak done in this way was really nice. I also liked that I didn't have to worry about the "burger" falling apart. My one caveat is that there were a few bites where the meat attempted to escape the burger with the bite I took. This was few and far between though.
Here is the finished plate:
