I adopted this recipe and made a few changes when I prepared it. I don't care for canned mixed veggies and don't usually have frozen mixed vegetables on hand. Therefore, I chopped up a couple of carrots and microwaved in a bit of water until tender; microwaved the potato and cubed it; sauteed some chopped onion in olive oil; defrosted some corn and peas; and stirred all of this together with a jar of beef gravy. My steak was round steak that I had slow cooked in the oven with beef broth after seasoning with Montreal steak seasoning. My husband thought that this was a winner, and I will surely repeat it again with leftover roast beef and steak. The comments of the original chef are as follows: "I found this in a cookbook of mine and made a few changes to suit my tastes better. It's a great way to use up leftover steak. Or you can change the meat and/or gravy and veggies to suit whatever meat you have leftover. I hope you'll enjoy it, too!"
- 1 1⁄2 lbs steak, cooked and cubed
- 1 (15 ounce) can mixed vegetables or 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 1 large baking potato, cooked and cubed
- 2 cups beef gravy (homemade or in a jar)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (12 ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
- Preheat oven to 375F and spray 8x8 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- Combine steak, veggies, and potato in prepared dish and then stir in gravy and seasonings.
- Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes and then remove from oven.
- Increase oven temperature to 400°F.
- Top meat mixture with biscuits and bake 8-10 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
This is more of a cold-weather dish -- not to be made when it's supposed to be over 100f out (though, it was still really tasty). I browned, then cooked the meat for a couple of hours just to make sure it was edible, and then followed the rest of the recipe. If anything, it was better the next day for lunch.
