This is a recipe I'm saving from an old cookbook found in my husbands grandparents barn. The book is falling apart and I want to save a few of the recipes so am submitting them here. This sounds interesting with the sweet potatoes. I'm not sure if this truly is a Louisiana dish as the name implies but it sounds delicious.
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut 3/4 inch thick
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 medium green pepper, cut in wedges
- 1 1⁄2 lbs beef round steak, cut about 3/4 inch thick

- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 (16 ounce) can tomatoes, cut up
- 1⁄2 cup beef broth
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 3 dashes hot sauce
- Layer sweet potato slices, onion slices, and green pepper wedges in a 2 quart casserole.
- Cut meat in a 6 serving size pieces; pound to about half the original thickness.
- Sprinkle with a little salt.
- In a skillet quickly brown meat in hot oil.

I had this same recipe in a cookbook I loaned out and never got back...I have been looking for this for some time now. It is my favorite dish! Thank You!!
The sweet potatoes mixed with tomatoes with the round steak is delish!
I use Heinz 57 to add some extra zest!!
