Stuffed Cube Steak


The other day, I had a hankering for cube steak, but did not want Swiss Steak or
Chicken Fried Steak - my usual go to's.  I wanted to do something else with cube steak
and remembered I had bookmarked a recipe from Pinterest that involved cube steak, bacon
and goat cheese.  I tried it, we liked it, and it is now in the regular dinner rotation.
I also discovered that this recipe can be done on the grill and is quite tasty either
broiled or grilled.  You dont need a potato or rice dish with it.  A really nice salad
and some crusty bread with some homemade lemonade really makes this a great summer meal.
It is also very quick.  Just what we all want out of our summer dishes!


Stuffed Cube Steak

Serves 4

4 Cube steaks
salt and pepper to taste
4 oz cream cheese (or goat cheese) softened - very soft.
2 T coconut oil
1 small sweet onion (Vidalia or Maui) finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 c baby spinach - stems removed and coarsely chopped
6-8 slices sun dried tomatoes, julienned
6- 8 strips of smoked bacon

Salt and pepper your cube steaks.

In small saute pan, melt coconut oil.  Add the onion and garlic.
Saute until soft and translucent.

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, onion/garlic mixture, spinach, tomatoes and
mix until well-incorporated.

Divide the mixture into four and generously spread cream cheese mix on one side of
the steak.  Roll the steak up into a log.  Wrap the cube steak log with the bacon (1-2
slices of bacon per log).  Place onto a broiler pan or rack.  Broil for 10 minutes,
until bacon is crispy.  Turn the steaks around and broil 10 minutes longer.  Check
for doneness.  Depending on the desired doneness, the thickness of the steak and the
bacon, will determine the actual cooking time for the steak.

Can also be placed on a grill - just be careful of oozing stuffing!

Remove and let rest for 5 minutes.

Serve with a nice salad and crusty bread!
