    I think you can cook it anyway you want. As for it being lean, check the usda nutritional page.

    Either way you cook it you will still be getting the same amount of protein.

    The easiest way for me to tell if its lean is by looking at it. Does it have a lot of fat marbled throughout the meat? If this is the case then it is probably not that lean, and you can trim off any fat on the sides of the meat. I find that eye of round is usually the leanest.

    i know that the cube steak at my local butcher is cut so it is quite lean, but i do believe cube steak is pretty lean anyway.

    Ya you can see the fat. Also you can just cut around it.

    Any type of boneless meat can be put through a cube machine whether it is fat or lean. Fat is very visible when cubed so most meat departments will use lean cuts of meat.
    As for cooking times for cubed steaks, they are generally thinner and require a little less cooking time than your average steak.
    Cooking it rare or medium won`t affect the protein, however the more you cook it the tougher it will be.

    My understanding is that any cut with the word 'loin' in its name is relatively lean for red meat. I.E. sirloin.
