“You'll need your butcher's help with this, but just ask, they'll be happy to do it for you!! This is VERY tender and OH SO GOOD because it's made from "cubed" pork chops rather than cubed steak or even tenderized round steak like most recipes use! I've never had good luck with cube steak! No matter what I did it was always tough, from medium rare to well done, it just never came out good and I gave up on it, ...til Tom told me his mom used to use pork instead! What a difference!!! You'll be shocked, too, at how Large they get when they "cube" them!! They're amazing! I've even made them for catering once, and they about died over them! They were a HUGE hit!! Hope you try it this way, you'll never go back! LOL! :)”
