How does ten pounds of cubed steak and gravy sound to you? I soaked it in buttermilk then pan fried it, then made the gravy. Part of our family is here with us from Pennsylvania and they requested cubed steak and gravy instead of the traditional turkey and dressing meal. There will be ten of us f...
