My Baked Steak with Onion Gravy

I had my Ladies' Bible Class this morning, but since then, I've been getting prepared just in case we get that storm that the National Weather Service is predicting. Sometimes they are correct in their predictions, and sometimes not, but I'd rather have food and extra water if we lose power. So, I got my van gassed-up, and swooped into the grocery store (which was extremely busy!). I was going to haul more wood to the back porch, but Blake did that job (great to have big, strapping, sons around!) So, I'm just now getting to my blog. I'm going to make my baked steak for tonight, so I thought that I'd share that with you.

Marcia's Baked Steak with Onion Gravy

1 large round steak or London Broil, cut into portions (or Black Angus Cube Steaks)
1 large chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste
Crisco shortening

Dredge pieces of steak in flour and drop into preheated heavy (cast iron) skillet (that has a couple of TBSP of Crisco heated). Brown coated meat on all sides; salt and pepper on both sides. Place browned pieces of meat in large crock pot that's been sprayed with cooking spray. Layer chopped onion with pieces of meat. Put warm water in skillet to loosen the browned bits; pour over steak and onions. Cook on low for several hours. Remove meat from crock and pour a little white sauce into drippings to thicken. Put meat back into pot with gravy. (You can also layer the meat, topped with onions in a glass casserole dish; pour pan drippings and warm water over it just to the top of the meat layer. Cover tightly with heavy foil and bake in the oven for 3-3 1/2 hrs. at 300 degrees (it will make its' own gravy!)

I'm at these swaps today:



  1. This sounds really great. I usually can't cook steak well because it seems to never get tender. I will try this. Thanks for sharing. Doylene

  2. When do the onions come into the recipe?


  3. After you put the browned meat in the crock pot, you layer it with chopped onions. Sorry 'bout that!
