A great comfort food, well worth the time to fix. Excellent with mashed potatoes. This recipe was handed down from my mom.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut roast across grain into 2" slices. Sift flour, salt and pepper together. Sprinkle about 2 tbsp on one side of meat, pound well with a meat mallet. Turn over and repeat on the other side, and on the remaining pieces.
  2. In a large deep skillet with lid, or dutch oven, heat bacon grease and brown meat slices well, about 5 minutes per side. Remove meat and set aside. Cook the vegetables until tender, about 6 - 8 minutes.
  3. Return meat to pan, cover with the vegetables, add the undrained tomatoes and beef broth. Cover and simmer (slow boil) until tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours Cut into portions, top with vegetables and gravy, serve.
  4. To bake: Follow directions, and instead of simmering on the stove top, cover and bake in a medium oven (350°F) for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
