STEAK…CUBED

If you grew up in the 1950’s and 60’s then a bit of nostalgia is returning for you. Remember the cube steak? Yes, the humble cube steak is suddenly one of the hottest cuts of beef in the country, according to figures from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The amount of cube steak sold during the last quarter of 2008 was up by almost 10 percent while the overall amount of beef sold went up only 3 percent.
It doesn’t take a wizard to figure out that the economy’s swan dive has much to do with the cube steak’s resurgence. But even before kitchen budgets became tight, the cube steak had its fan base. Restaurant managers know that comfort food always holds popularity. Look for the restaurant business and hospitality industry to start finding menu space for new presentations of an old favorite.
