Beef Cube Steak with Steamed Red Cabbage

Beef Cube Steak with Steamed Red Cabbage (Serves 2)

I am hungry before I start cooking most of the time, so like meals that can be prepared fast. Today that was beef cube steak and red cabbage.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


2/3 pound of beef cube steak
Red cabbage
Yellow mustard (the cheap, ordinary stuff)
Apple cider vinegar
Garlic powder
Black pepper

In preparation:

Add water to steamer pot and set over medium heat. Rinse cabbage. Cut head into halves. Chop one half into bite-sized pieces. Save the other half in an air-tight plastic container for another meal. Divide cube steak into two patties and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste on both sides.


Add chopped cabbage to the steamer pot. Add a nice dusting of salt and black pepper to the top. Cover and let cook 15-20 minutes, depending upon how soft you like your cabbage. About 10 minutes before the cabbage will be done, heat non-stick grill-pan over medium heat. Lay cube steak patties on grill pan and let sear undisturbed for 4 minutes. Turn with a spatula to sear the other side for 4 minutes. Squirt enough yellow mustard on the top side to spread a thin layer evenly across each patty with a spoon. After the second side has seared, turn the meat again to cook in the mustard. Now back to the cabbage. Splash some apple cider vinegar over the steamed cabbage. Stir well to mix the salt, pepper, and vinegar. Transfer to a plate and eat!
