Smothered Chuck Steak Electric Skillet Style
How to Make Smothered Chuck Steak Electric Skillet Style
- Heat electric skillet to medium and drizzle in some olive oil. Placed seasoned steaks in and brown on both sides. Turn temp down to "Warm" where the light goes on and off every minute or two. Now cover with water and add chopped celery and onion. This is the secret to this melt in your mouth, incredibly flavorful steak. If your temp is too high and the heat light stays on your electric skillet constantly you will have to turn the meat and add water every few minutes to keep it from burning.
- With temp on the Warm setting, seasoned meat covered in water and chopped onion and celery added, cover with lid and allow to simmer for about 20-30 min. Keep an eye on it until you know how often you need to add more water. Each time you add more water turn the meat over. About half way through add about 1 tsp of beef bouillon powder. This will just enrich your broth (gravy).
- Allow to simmer 2- 2 1/2 hours or until steak is fork tender. Make sure you have plenty of water (broth) in pan when you remove steaks.
- GRAVY-remove steak, mix together in a small bowl about 1 c milk and 1 tbsp. cornstarch. Mix together well till no lumps then add to broth ( I had about 3-4 cups of broth). If you have less broth use less milk and cornstarch. Add cornstarch mix to broth and stir while on low heat until thickened. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
