I remember my mom making this, even in her later years when she couldn't be on her feet a lot. She would put her electric skillet on a small table and make this. Many times we had it with mushrooms she and my dad had picked in their woods. I now cook fresh mushrooms and add it to the gravy.

This woman could take a piece of round steak and make it so tender, you had no idea you weren't eating a finer piece of beef!

How to Make Round Steak with Rich Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. Sprinkle one side of meat with half the flour; pound in. Repeat on other side. Cut meat into 6-8 serving pieces.
  2. Melt shortening in large skillet. Brown meat in shortening over medium heat--about 15 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle onion soup over meat. Mix water and mushroom soup; pour over meat.
  4. Cover tightly; simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender.
  5. Remove meat; keep warm. Heat the gravy in the skillet to boiling, stirring constantly; if you care to add cooked mushrooms, do it in this step.
  6. Pour the gravy over the meat and serve.
