My mother made this as a special dinner, usually on Sunday. Steak was a bit cheaper in those days.
I've served this to my family, and now that I'm alone, I make a batch and freeze it. Maybe!
I say that because I like it so much I tend to have it for dinner every night until it is gone!!!! lol
This is actually a good company dinner because it can be stretched and not seem skimpy. Just add more onions or mushrooms, and make more gravy.
Obviously it can also be halved, it necessary.

How to Make My Family's Steak and Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice steak across the grain into 1/8 inch pieces, set aside.
  2. Steak slice mushrooms, set aside.
  3. Slice onions in half from top to bottom then sliver thinly into quarter moon pieces.
  4. Heat 2 Tbs olive oil in large fry pan.
  5. Add onions and garlic, saute until onions are limp. Remove from pan and set aside.
  6. Brown steak pieces in batches, adding oil as needed. Set aside.
  7. Saute mushrooms in butter until soft. Leave in pan.
  8. Put all steak and onion/garlic back in pan, including accummulated juices.
  9. Add water to cover, measuring it as you add.
  10. For each cup of water you will need 2Tbs flour and 2Tbs butter.
  11. At this point you can add soy sauce to your taste. Pepper may be all you need for seasoning.
  12. Melt butter and incorporate flour to form a roux.
  13. Add bits of this roux to the pan, making sure each bit is dissolved before adding another. I find a whisk is the best instrument to use.
  14. Bring mix to a boil, turn down and simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally with a whisk. Add gravy master to your preference.
  15. You can adjust any seasoning, soy sauce, gravy master, pepper, and/or salt.
  16. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes with a green veggie and rolls.
