Recipe
Mr. Foodie

My grandmother’s famous classic beef stew with Chuck has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. It’s a recipe that has been passed down through generations, and each time it’s made, it brings back memories of family gatherings and cozy winter nights. The rich and hearty stew is perfect for chilly evenings and warms you up from the inside out.She had a tough time tenderizing beef, Chuck. She and her mother only pound it with a Meat Hammer several times, which is messy and hard on her arm. But everything changed once she got her hands on the XSpecial Meat Tenderizer Tool 48-Blade Stainless Steel about 5 years ago. She couldn’t believe how easy it was to use and how quickly it transformed tough cuts of meat into tender, juicy goodness.

Country Fried Steak Recipe

Breaded and fried beef cutlets, known as country-fried steak, originated in the Southern United States as an affordable alternative to high-priced steaks. The tenderized cubed beef steaks are dredged in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, then pan-fried until golden brown. Legend has it that German and Austrian immigrants who settled in Texas in the 1800s brought schnitzel recipes, which evolved into country-fried steak. The classic accompaniment is sawmill, or country gravy spooned over the crispy beef. This hearty, down-home dish remains popular today as an inexpensive, comforting meal.
