Note: This is part of a series as I cook through my mom’s recipe box. I’m cheating a bit with this recipe because (like the Fried Green Tomatoes post) I don’t actually have a written recipe from my mom for this one. However, this is very typical of a dinner my mom would have made and I’m sure after tasting it that it would have received her stamp of approval.
So there’s a funny story behind this post. I normally do the meat buying and prepping while my husband does the grilling. However, a while back I called to see if he could pick up some steaks for us to grill. I usually try to buy T-bones or Rib Eye cuts. My hubby came home with Bottom Round Steak. Instead of grilling, I decided to search the Internet for different ways to prepare Bottom Round, as I had never done so myself. I remember my mom cooking this cut, so I was hoping to find a recipe she would approve of. Here’s what I did:
Here’s the recipe:
1-2 lbs. Bottom Round Steak
Seasoning (use whatever you like)
Flour (for coating)
Salt and Pepper
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup beef broth
Poke meat well with fork. Rub olive oil and seasoning into meat, coat with flour. Sear in skillet. Place sliced onion and minced garlic in bottom of baking dish. Top with seared meat. Salt and pepper to taste. Add broth to drippings in skillet and stir well to loosen. Pour over meat. Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with mashed potatoes, corn, or other vegetable.
