Why is my gravy too thin?

If your gravy turns out too thin, you can add more of the cornstarch and water mixture to help thicken it.

How long do leftovers last?

If you have any leftovers store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can also freeze individual portions in a freezer bag for up to 1 month. Heat from fridge to desired temperature in microwave. If frozen, be sure to thaw out before heating.

How do you tenderize cube steak?

If your cube steak is not tenderized or not enough, you can easily tenderize it with a meat mallet. Just pound the steak thin using a meat mallet. This will reduce the amount of tough tissue that forms. You can also use a rolling pin for this method.
