A lot of flavors going on in this recipe. I especially liked the sour cream gravy. The meat was tender and juicy and the gravy took it over the top. I think next time I make this I am going to leave out the brown sugar. It was good as written, but I think I would rather not have the hint of sweetness from the brown sugar. I bought a couple packs of round steak because they were on sale. I can't wait to make this again. Made for June, 2010 Aus/NZ Swap.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim fat and bone from meat. Cut into serving-size pieces and place on waxed paper. Mix flour, mustard, salt, thyme, and pepper. Sprinkle all of it over meat on both sides.
  2. Cover with another sheet of waxed paper and pound meat using a mallet until flour is worked into the meat and does not fall off when pieces are picked up.
  3. Heat butter and oil in a heavy casserole or Dutch oven. Brown meat pieces on both sides. Add tomatoes, onion, celery, carrots and brown sugar.
  4. Cover and simmer or bake for 1 1/2 hours or until very tender. Stir sour cream into gravy just before serving.
  5. Eat hearty!
