My Mom's Swiss Steak
2 lbs. Round steak
Garlic salt and pepper, to taste ( Lawry's is the best )
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large sliced onion
3 cups of water or beef consommé
3 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 Can of Mushrooms or can use fresh
Salt and pepper each steak lightly and dredge in the flour. .
With a meat mallet pound flour into the steak. By pounding the steak your not
only tenderizing the meat but you are working the flour into the meat which will
produce a better gravy.
Heat a heavy 12 inch cast iron skillet
or Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat. Add the vegetable oil.
Brown the steak on both sides, if there is a lot of oil in the pan drain it
Pour the water or consommé over the top of the steak, add Worcestershire sauce,
sliced onion and mushrooms. Reduce the heat, use a tight fitting lid and stew
the beef until tender adding water if it becomes to dry.
When the steak is done, remove to a
serving plate. Make a paste of a little water and flour to thicken the gravy
adjust seasonings and serve with mashed potatoes.
Now this is comfort food , I don't care
what kind of veggies you have with it as long as you don't forget the mashed
potatoes! Course Mom did usually serve it with green beans , fresh with bacon
and onion, but I don't care have what you want... LOL
I watched Mom make this a hundred times
and have made it about that many times myself. I can do it in my sleep.
