Baked Steak and Onions

Russ Myers


Baked steak, also called smothered steak, is a mostly hands-off dinner that makes the best of inexpensive steaks. Since these steaks (think blade, chuck, or round steaks) have more connective tissue than tender (and expensive) cuts like filets, they respond best to braising.
If your cut of meat seems excessively tough, try baking at 250 F for 3 hours, instead of the recommended 350 F for 2 hours.
