This is more of a method than a recipe,we will make this for senior lunch tomorrow serving about 50 people so it's hard to give amounts. This is the way I remember my Mother making smothered steak,she would usually use round steak ,sometimes cube steak.You can also make hamburger patties and use the same gravy.Great served with mashed potatoes as this makes plenty of gravy.
