How to Make Smothered Steak

Step-by-Step

  1. I used an electric skillet for this dish. Add a little olive oil to skillet and brown steak on both sides. Add about 2 cups of water, celery and onion (you can add some sliced carrots too if preferred). Cover with lid and simmer on very low. On the electric skillet I turn the knob till the light just comes on, it will then cut off and on and as it simmers. Check skillet about every 30 minutes and turn steak and add more water if needed. When steak is done you want 2 cups of broth. Cook till will depend on thickness of steak. My steak was about 1-1 1/2" thick. Most any cut of steak will work.
  2. Once steak is tender (I wanted mine to the shredded point) remove steak, veggie and broth. Melt 1/4-1/2 c of butter and add the same amount of flour to make a roux. Let flour brown just a little to remove the raw taste. Add broth back to pan and mix well and allow to thicken. Add steak back into gravy and I used a potato masher to "smash" my steak and shred it.
  3. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice or bread for an open face steak sammie.
