I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy meals that are also healthy. Today’s recipe is my version of oven baked round steak and boy-oh-boy did it turn out yummy.

Ingredients:

2 lbs. tenderized round steak

3 Tbs. oil

garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste

1 medium onion, sliced

6 oz. can tomato paste

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1/2 – 1 tsp. seasonings of your choice

1 cup frozen green pras

Cooking Procedure:

Cut steak into serving pieces, trimming off all extra fat.

Rub meat with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Heat oil. Brown steak on both sides and place meat in a baking pan. http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/view-image.php?image=23818&picture=steak-frying-in-a-pan

Drain excess fat from the skillet, and in the same skillet, heat tomato paste, water and seasonings. Add a bay leaf, if desired.

Arrange sliced onion over meat in the baking dish.

Pour the tomato mixture over the steak.

Bake covered at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Uncover steak and sprinkle the frozen green peas over the top of the steak. Replace cover and continue baking until tender.

Cover tightly and bake in a moderate 350 degree oven for a total of 1 1/2 – 2 hours under meat is fork-tender.

Additional Notes:

  • This recipe works very well for the crock pot, too. Cook on low              for 7-8 hours.
  • Add any seasonings that your family likes to the tomato mixture. I always add garlic, salt and pepper in addition to one or two choices of the following: Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb, Italian seasoning or Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning.
  • I also used grass fed beef in this recipe and the meat was flavorful, moist and tender.
