If you don't have a large enough skillet to accomodate the two steaks and sauce then use a Dutch oven, I use my large electric skillet for this, if desired you may double the sauce amount to use for a large chuck pot roast, cooking times will need to be increased
- 3 -4 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt or 1 teaspoon white salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 2 (1 lb) boneless beef shoulder chuck steaks (about 3/4 to 1-inch thick)

- Heat oil in a large skillet or electric frypan over medium-high heat.In a bowl combine the water with tomato sauce, lemon juice, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder until combined; set aside.

I really enjoyed this recipe. We had it tonight with some sauteed mixed veggies. I used pork shoulder steaks, 3 thin ones. I also used the seasoned salt and beef broth in place of the water. Fall apart tender meat, thanks to the long simmer and the acids in the tomato sauce. I skimmed and saved all the broth, and I'm going to try it in a rice dish tomorrow. Thanks for another great recipe!
