Recipe by HeatherFeather
A recipe from my Great Aunt Alta's collection. This is one she clipped from the Chicago Tribune and it had won the "$5 Favorite Recipe Prize," a weekly feature in the newspaper. I am not sure if she ever made this one or not, but I thought it sounded good enough to share. These days, I would use a few spoonfuls of olive oil to brown the steak instead of the bacon drippings originally called for.

Very tasty recipe. We bought some round steaks & found them tough so I was searching for a good recipe to use the rest in. This one worked great due to the initial tenderizing & long simmer time. I used only 2 1/2 lb of meat, doubled the bell pepper & tomato and used olive oil to brown the steaks. We enjoyed this, thanks for sharing.

- 1⁄4 cup bacon drippings or 1⁄4 cup shortening
- 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple rings, undrained

- 1 (1 3/8 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
