With just a few stock cupboard items and some decent round steak you can make this tender, one-pan meal that's sure to please yourself and your family. I don't like "spicy" dishes so I used a mild salsa. The choice is yours.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice round steak into thin strips.
  2. I find that a sharp knife and partially frozen meat makes this easiest.
  3. Pour oil into good-sized frying pan.
  4. Brown round steak until no pink is apparent.
  5. Add onion soup mix, 1 cup water and salsa.
  6. Stir until well mixed.
  7. Bring to boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
  8. Add two cups water and one cup uncooked rice.
  9. Stir and bring back to boil.
  10. Cover and cook on medium heat for 20 to 25 minutes, until rice is done.

I made this for a halftime dish during the Sunday football games. I doubled the recipe and used two jars of "hot" salsa for the manly men in our group! I cooked for an additional 25 minutes after adding the rice instead of 20 minutes since it was still a little soupy at 20. The flavor was very tasty and it went well with the taco chips, etc that were on the table.

Having a family with varied work schedules makes it tough to find recipes that pleases everyone. This is a keeper. We used this fab recipe for fajitas.
