This is one of my family's favorite meals. I totally forgot to take pictures of the whole process!

Smothered Steak

Tender, juicy beef cooked slowly in a thick gravy. Serve with rice, noodles, or potatoes for a satisfying meal. Our favorite combination is this served over hot buttered egg noodles with steamed broccoli on the side.

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 2-3 hours
Servings: 6

  • 2 pounds steak, cut into strips (or 2 lbs stew meat)

  • 1 cup all-purpose unbleached flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 6 ounces dark beer

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 soup can of water

  • 1 package brown gravy mix


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Combine flour and pepper and coat steak strips with the mixture. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a heavy-bottomed oven-safe Dutch oven and brown the floured steak in the oil. Remove steak to plate and scrape the bottom of the pan, deglazing with the beer.

Combine remaining ingredients, mixing well. Stir in the steak strips.

Bring to a boil. Cover and place in oven. Bake for 2-3 hours, stirring often.

This was one of the times I opened up the oven to stir tonight:
