Had a pound of stew meat and over a pound of lean trimmings from a whole tenderloin I trimmed and prepared for Christmas dinner.

To ease the preparation and help with cleanup, I found using disposable aluminum pans for the breading station, storage for breaded eggplant before and after frying, etc., to be a very good idea. Just toss in the trash after use. Also, instead of a skillet to fry the eggplant, I used an old turkey roaster placed...
