  • 2
    lbs round steaks, cut into serving pieces and pounded thin
  • 12
    cup flour, for dusting steaks
  • 1
    medium onion, cut in quarters and sliced
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    teaspoon pepper
  • 3
    tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2
    (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1
    (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed beef broth
  • 8
    ounces sliced fresh mushrooms (optional)


  • Put flour, salt, and pepper in large ziploc baggie.
  • Add pounded steak pieces and shake well.
  • Do not remove from bag.
  • In large dutch oven, heat oil over medium high heat until shimmering.
  • Shake baggie to recoat steak pieces, shake each piece to remove excess flour, and add to skillet.
  • Fry until browned on each side, approximately 2 minutes per side.
  • (This will have to be done in batches. Remove each browned piece to a plate.).
  • Add onions to dutch oven, cover and cook for one minute.
  • Add soup and broth, stir well, add steak pieces, cover, and place in 325 oven for 90 minutes.
  • If using mushrooms, add after 60 minutes and replace in oven.
  • This makes a lot of gravy that doesn't usually have to be thickened and is wonderful on boiled or mashed potatoes.
