This is one of the first successful dishes I learned to make when newly married, many years ago. I had never learned to cook, and my very patient husband gamely ate his way through many a kitchen flop! Fortunately, this one was a hit, and became one of our favorite meals, even after I learned to cook!

Ingredients

lbs. round steak
5 - 8 Tbsp
flour, enough to coat meat
salt and pepper, to taste
4 Tbsp
oil
1 c
water
1
beef bouillon cube, crumbled
2 Tbsp
fresh parsley, snipped
1 tsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
dried thyme leaves, crushed
3 Tbsp
flour, for gravy
1/2 tsp
kitchen bouquet (browning liquid) optional, but nice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2
Cut meat into serving size pieces. Lightly salt and pepper meat on both sides. Mix small amount of additional salt and pepper with enough flour to coat meat. Coat meat pieces well with flour mixture. Brown meat in oil - in oven-going skillet, if available - until just golden brown.

Combine 1 cup hot water, bouillon cube, parsley, sugar and thyme. Pour over meat.
4
Cover skillet tightly, or transfer to covered casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees or until meat is tender, 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours. Remove meat to serving platter, leaving liquid in skillet, or transfer liquid from baking dish to skillet; keep meat warm in very low oven.
5
Add enough water to liquid in skillet to equal 1 and 1/2 cups in all. Mix 3 tablespoons flour with 1/2 cup additional cold water; stir into skillet juices. Stir in Kitchen Bouquet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly. Pour over meat. - This is great served with mashed potatoes!
