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.

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!

How To Make firehouse steak

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 2
    Cut steak into serving sized pieces and dredge in flour. There's no need to brown, according to the recipe, but I did.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    Pour tomato mixture over steak, cover and bake about 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
  • 5
    It's really good with biscuits or Texas Toast.
