Firehouse Steak

Donna Brown Recipe

By Donna Brown gabbiegirl


I've often heard that some firemen are really good cooks. I cut this recipe out of the paper about 25 years ago. It is from an article on the good cooks that work in Jackson, TN as firemen and the meals they prepare for the firefighters when they are on duty. This steak is so tender and the "gravy" it makes is delicious.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The flavor of this dish is incredible. It was overwhelming approved by the Kitchen Crew AND my son has asked that I make it for his next company party. Now that's one big seal of approval. Enjoy!


round steak, cut in serving size pieces
can whole tomatoes, diced, with the juice (the chili ready diced tomatoes are really good)
bell pepper, chopped
onion, chopped
worcestershire sauce, sorry no amount, but it said it should be dark
black pepper
1 tsp
sugar or 2 pkgs sweetner
flour to batter steak
oil to brown steak, if you choose to brown it

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut steak into serving sized pieces and dredge in flour. There's no need to brown, according to the recipe, but I did. Put floured steak in a large pot with a lid. (I use a large cast iron Dutch oven with a top.) Mix other ingredients in a bowl. Pour tomato mixture over steak, cover and bake about 1 1/2 hours or until tender. It's really good with biscuits or Texas Toast.

Very good. I didn't use the spicy tomatoes but I did add a can of chopped mild chiles. It gave it a good flavor. Did it in the Crockpot and I'm tellin' ya the smells were something else.
