Tasty Home-Style Round Steak

Martha Price


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!

How to Make Tasty Home-Style Round Steak

  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!
