Steak-umms are good.

I think that I've mentioned this before but in case you just started reading I'll say it again.  I love the grocery store.  I love to squeeze the tomatoes, smell the melons, and ogle the seafood.  Usually I'm stopping in on my way home from work so I try to restrain myself from spending too much time, but occasionally I still wander around and look for new low carb awesomeness.

A couple of days ago I was having one of those wandering moments and my travels took me to the frozen food aisle where I discovered Steak-umms.  Now, I'm told by several people that I am out of touch and that Steak-umms have been around forever and are not that big of a deal.  I don't know how I am just now finding this wonder food, but I'm glad that I did.

A box of Steak-umms is around $3.00 and has 6 servings of meat, which is a steal if you ask me.  The steak comes out in pre sliced sheets and you can cook it in a frying pan with a little olive oil for a minute or so.  I have been using it to top salads and add to my egg scrambles in the mornings.  I've also been thinking that I might be able to use the meat to make a mean Philly style stuffed pepper (stay tuned).  

At my office we do not have a full kitchen but we do have a hot plate and a couple of frying pans and pots.  I've gotten quite accustomed to using those two little burners to whip up some above average work lunches. So far I haven't branched out much beyond steak salads and steak and egg scrambles, but I'll be keeping you all updated on new developments!

  1. SteakUmms are soooo good! My dad used to make philly cheese steak sandwiches with them growing up. So good! They might be good in a cheese dip with veggies to dip.
