Round Steak with Mushroom Gravy

This simple recipe is great served with mashed red potatoes.

1-1 ½ pounds round steak, trimmed and cut into serving size portions
¼ c. flour
Salt and pepper
1-2 Tbsp. oil for frying
1 can (4 oz.) mushrooms, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Place steak on cutting board. Sprinkle with a little flour, salt and pepper. Tenderize both sides with “waffle” side of meat mallet. Brown steak in oil over medium high heat about 3 minutes per side. Add mushrooms and soup, cover and continue cooking over medium low heat for about 1 hour or until steak is tender. Serves 3-4

I like making mashed potatoes out of red potatoes. Simply wash them (don’t peel). Cut into even size chunks; add water to cover. Boil until soft; drain water; mash; add butter and milk or cream and seasonings.
Did you ever have your potatoes boil over? It won’t happen if you place a wooden spoon across the top of the pot!

It is after you have lost your teeth that you can finally afford to buy steaks.
