I have this same recipe from my 1973 Betty Crocker cookbook. The only difference is mine doesn't call for the Jalapeno pepper. We all thought this was a good recipe and the gravy is very tasty too.

This gets a 5* review for sure! The soups made a fantastic gravy, the vegetables still had tons of their own flavor, and the meat was so tender we didn't need a knife to cut it! I did want to mention that I used round steak in place of the chuck steak, but aside from that I made it exactly as written and would not change a thing. Thanks so much for posting your recipe, it is a true winner :)
