comfort essentials: creamy/dreamy round steak

Recipe by

This recipe started out as a Philly Cheesesteak then went to a Stroganoff, and finally evolved into whatever-this-is. Well, “whatever-this-is,” is a dreamy combination of round steak, shrooms, onions, and a few other bits-and-bobs. It makes one heck of a yummy meal, and it even tastes better the next day (a lot of recipes do). Total comfort food on a cold Winter’s eve. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make comfort essentials: creamy/dreamy round steak

    What will you need? This is a one-pot meal, so you will need a good pot with a lid. A Dutch oven would be ideal.

    What is it? This is real comfort food made with simple ingredients and tastes awesome. You can choose another cut of beef, if you like, but you may need to adjust the cooking time to make it fork tender.

    What to serve with it? This recipe was born to be served over a steaming plate of mash taters, but that is just me. A small side salad, and some crusty bread would also be a good thing. As for wine... A nice crisp chardonnay :-) Some would prefer a red with beef, like a cabernet sauvignon, , but I am not much into reds.

    How to store it? This recipe will survive in the fridge, properly covered for 5 – 7 days. However, it can be frozen, in which case it will last for 3 – 4 months. If vacuum sealed and frozen, it will last for 12 – 14 months.

    The Gravy This is an important part of the recipe, so whether you use store bought or homemade, choose something that you love. Here is what I used:
  • 7
    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 8
    Slice up the onion and mushrooms
  • 9
    Add the oil to a pot over medium heat. When the pot warms up, add the onions.
  • 10
    Stir for about 2 – 3 minutes, and then add the mushrooms.
  • 11
    Reduce the heat to medium low, then stir the onions until they soften, and the mushrooms release their liquid and begin to brown, about 12 – 15 minutes.
  • 12
    Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom/onion mixture, and add the oregano, white pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne.
  • 13
    Stir for about 2 minutes.
  • 14
    Add the gravy and bring up to a simmer.
  • 15
    Add the round steak and stir to combine. Then cover and allow to slowly simmer. Open the lid and stir about every 15 minutes.
  • 16
    Simmer until the beef is fork tender, about 90 minutes.

  • So yummy
    I love serving this over a plate of garlic mash taters, but that is up to you. Enjoy.
