With the cost of fuel cutting away at our food budget, we have been buying less expensive cuts of meat and looking for innovative ways to serve them. I found that a tougher piece of meat can be pan fried, cut into smallish pieces, and then run through our small food processor to produce a coarse pate which can then be mixed with minced onions, flavorings and a favorite salad dressing to make a delicious sandwich spread. It really makes a piece of otherwise challenging meat into a delicious and easy meal ingredient when served on bread with condiments, and there is plenty of room to experiment with your own flavorings.
My tip is to cook cheaper cuts of meat in a mixture of 1 can of any kind diet cola, 1 small can of mushroom soup and 1 packet of onion soup mix. It makes the most versatile, delicious sauce and tender, melt in your mouth meat that you would never guess it would be made with soda pop!
I even cook stew meat on top of the stove and it comes out so wonderful that my family thinks they are eating top sirloin beef tips. Recipe can be doubled as needed.
