Baked steak means mom is a rock star! When planning Steve’s 40 th birthday surprise family party, there was no other choice for the menu. And now that the weather is beautifully crisp and winter is knocking at our doors, I am much more inclined to turn my oven on all day and bring the “Sunday lunch” aroma to our home.  My mom has made this recipe ever since I was little and it has become a never failing “go to” recipe.  If you don’t believe that this will bring happiness to the mouths of your loved ones, you should check out Steve’s smile as he sat down for his birthday meal—click {HERE} for complete happiness.

If you’re looking for comfort food, this is where it’s at. Pair with mashed or fried potatoes, a veggie, roll, and fruit salad and you’ve got a winning meal. Trust me on this…your family will love it!  And if it’s a family love, then I need to share at Tonya’s Weekend Potluck!  And as far as a Grandma’s recipe or any good cook will tell you—there isn’t an exact recipe.  Don’t you love it when you hear that?  My mom and grandmas are amazing cooks/bakers—but I do have to say, it sometimes irritates me when they can’t give me the exact recipe.  So, when thinking of posting this, the thought came through my head…”I really don’t have a recipe for this”—and I was instantly irritated with myself.  BUT, this is pretty much how you make it.

Baked Steak
8-12 pieces of minute steak
Flour
Salt
Pepper
2 cans of Cream of Mushroom and Chicken

2  soup cans full of milk or half and half

Mix about 1 cup of flour with 3 Tbsp of Lawry salt and 1Tbsp pepper. Dredge each piece of meat and cover in flour mixture. Pan fry meat just until browned in skillet with about 1 inch of oil. Layer meat in roaster. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Meanwhile, mix cans of soups and milk and heat in microwave and stir to combine. Pour over meat.

Bake for 2-3 hours.
