|CARBONNE OF BEEF|
Vegetables, sauce disguise cube steaks. A Carbonne of Beef disguises cube steaks in a creamy sauce flecked with olives, onions, and mushrooms.
A change of pace from pan-fried cube steaks, this meat dish is fit for company. A creamy sauce is prepared and poured over the browned steaks. Most of the cooking is done in the oven, so the meat dish can cook while the rest of the menu is being prepared.
The Carbonne of Beef can be served with a tossed garden salad and tender-crisp cooked carrots or broccoli. Add your favorite dessert, and the menu becomes company fare.
