Q: How do I cook Pernil (PR style)? The meat is cut into 2 inch cubes & recipes are all for on the bone.?

A: PR style Pernil should be roasted whole, on the bone… Put you can make fried pork (Carne Frita) by marinating the cubed meat in salt, peppar, oregano, and minced fresh garlic and a little bit of oil. Marinate for about an hour, or the longer the better. Fry in 3-4 inches of oil at around 325 degrees, covered, for about 6 minutes. Mmmmm-mmmm… And enjoy!!

Q: Any good recipes for pork cubed steak?
I always fry pork cubed steak when I buy it, and I am planning on making it tonight but was wondering if anyone has a better recipe. Thanks!

A: My wife is from Indianna and she turned me on to pork tenderloin sandwiches. I had never heard of them before that. Take your cubed pork dredge it in buttermilk and then in bread or cracker crumbs. Then take a rolling pin and roll the pork out to about 3/8 of an inch, they get pretty big around. Deep fry in crisco untill golden (it doesn’t take long). Put it on a humberger bun with pickles and mustard. Great, now I’m hungry!

Hope this helps

Q: Got any Recipes for Alligator. Seriously. I need a good recipe for cubed alligator meat !?
I’d prefer something with pineapple juice which I know is a natural tenderizer. How long before the pineapple juice starts to actually disolve meat?

A: You can use alligator in any recipe that you would normally use to cook chicken. You can marinate the meat in juice or any other acid to tenderize it–as little as 30 minutes will help, but you can marinate for several hours if you have the time. Just be sure to keep the meat cold while marinating. Here’s a recipe for you (or just look for a recipe using chicken and sub in the gator):
Sweet and Sour Alligator
Serves 6

1 1/2 pounds Alligator tail meat, cut in 3/4-inch cubes
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 8-ounce can unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained
1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1-inch squares
2 celery stalks, sliced thinly
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
hot cooked rice

Combine eggs, flour, milk and salt; mix well. Add alligator cubes, stirring to

In a 2-quart deep fryer, heat vegetable oil to 350ºF. Deep fry alligator, a few
pieces at a time, until golden brown. Drain well.

In a 4-quart saucepan, combine pineapple juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, tomato
sauce, vinegar, corn syrup, garlic salt and black pepper. Stir well. Cook over
medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in alligator chunks,
pineapple, bell pepper, celery and onion. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Serve
over hot cooked rice.

Q: Does anyone have good cube steak recipes?
I took some out for tonight, but I’m fresh out of ideas.

A: I rarely consider using a recipe for cube steaks., but I rarely have them. If they are really tender, I think they are great just seasoned and cooked in a little butter.

But I have made a recipe breading the steaks that is a nice change and is delicious. Not the healthiest thing when frying foods, but it cooks so quickly, it doesn’t absorb the oil.

Season the breadcrumbs with your choice of herbs, and maybe a little garlic powder (not garlic salt) and put in a shallow dish.

Add a little milk to about 3 eggs and beat well by hand.

Dip meat in egg and then breadcrumbs to coat well.

Fry in a little canola oil until nicely browned on both sides. Drain on paper towel and serve with your choice of side dishes.

Another variation would be to put the fried pieces on a shallow pan. Put a slices of mozzarella cheese and a few spoonfuls of an Ital. sauce on each, and put under the broiler to melt the cheese. That could be served with pasta & a salad, or just a salad.

Q: Anyone have any good cube steak recipes? I looked online but nothing good. OK Moms who cook help? Please?
Something simple but good! Maybe where I can cook them in my electric skillet?

A: I use tenderized round steak…I like it better than cube steak, but you could also do this w/ cubed steak. I just dip it in milk and then in some flour mixed w/ seasoning salt and pepper. I fry on both sides till all pinkness in middle is gone. We just had it Sunday as a matter of fact!

Q: Ok folks, im new to cooking and was wondering if anyone has any good recipes for cubed beef??
to put it all in perspective, im in need of lots of pointers!! do i just put the beef in a pot full of water and just let it cook or what????? please help me! ive got a refrigerator full of beef, chicken, etc. HELP!!!

A: Yes, you could just put a load of beef in a pot of water and turn it on, but you will end up with a pot of water full of grey scum and a lot of grey, stringy, tasteless but edible meat.

If you want to make beef taste of anything, you have to sear it. This means cooking it for a few minutes in a very hot cooking medium (i.e. hot fat) so that it goes brown on the outside. The brown crust consists of caramelised natural meat juices, and is the reason why steaks taste good.

If you want to make a stew, you don’t just cook meat in water. You have to add other stuff to make the water turn into delicious stew liquor. The usual things to add are onion, carrot and celery, but I prefer to use leek instead of celery.

You will need a peeled onion, at least one peeled carrot and a cleaned and trimmed leek, meaning that you cut the bottom end off and also the green woody bits. You will also need to wash the leek carefully, because it tends to accumulate dirt inside itself.

Take your cubed beef and put it on a plate. Take a heavy pot and put a layer of olive oil on the bottom. Heat this until it shimmers.

Fry off the meat in batches, not too much at a time. If you attempt to cook it all at once, it will give off too much juice and will boil instead of go brown. Fat heats to a higher temperature than water, and you need the fat in the oil to turn the surface of the beef a rich brown colour. That’s flavour.

You may need to add more oil as you go. Not too much. When all the meat is nicely golden brown on all sides, take the last batch out and add your onion, carrot and leek. Stir them around a bit and let their natural juice loosen up some of the brown crusty stuff that should have accumulated on the bottom of the pan (all that brown crusty stuff is pure flavour, btw.) This is a good moment to add a glass of decent dry white wine, i.e. Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.

The wine should bubble fiercely – if it doesn’t, the heat isn’t up high enough.

When the wine has boiled for a few minutes, chuck all the meat back in the pan and add just enough water to cover the meat and vegetables. Now is the time to add herbs and flavourings such as thyme, rosemary, fresh orange peel, red wine, stock powder, Guinness etc.

Let the liquid come to a boil, then turn it right down and simmer it on the gentlest heat you can get for about two hours. If you try to simmer it for a shorter time, the meat will get tougher and tougher and tougher and will not be tasty. The best thing to do is to simmer it for two hours, then turn the heat off, cover it and leave it overnight, then reheat it the following night. Some sort of magic happens to a beef casserole when you leave it overnight.

I assume you want tasty, succulent, tender beef and a rich and flavourful liquid which can be soaked up by baked potatoes or rice or whatever. This is one way to achieve that.

Q: Does anyone know any good recipes for pork cubed steak?
I usually fry it, but want something healthier. Any ideas?

A: Get Lawry’s marinades or any store brand marinades, you can let them sit for 30 minutes and the flavor is great. We use garlic and herb a lot on pork. If you have more time, let them sit longer then 30 min. Then bake it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or so. Serve with your favorite veggie and pasta.
