AuburnChick Cooks a Yummy Meal

I am more than willing to admit that I am not much of a cook.  I’ve never enjoyed it much.  Except for cooking desserts, I seem to be flavor-challenged and, hence, my dishes often do not live up to what I envision.

That’s why, a few nights ago, we were all pleasantly surprised when dinner was actually quite tasty!  I thought I would share the recipe which I based loosely off of this one, blending several of the suggestions in the comments.

Round Steak and Gravy

1 package bottom round steak chunks

1 pkg Lipton Golden Onion Soup mix

1 pkg Lipton Beefy Onion Soup mix

2 tbsp flour and 3 tbsp flour (divided as listed)

Dash of garlic salt

Dash of black pepper

Dash of red pepper flakes

1 can beef bouillon

2 cans of water

Mix flour, garlic salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes and coat the meat with it.

Brown the meat in a pan.  Put the meat in a crockpot when finished.  Pour some of the beef bouillon into the pan and use to remove the drippings from the pan, which you will add to the crockpot.  Pour remaining beef bouillon, along with two cans of water, and dry soup mixes into the crockpot.

Set on low and cook for 6-7 hours.

About 45 minutes before serving, mix three tablespoons of flour with cold water and pour into the crockpot to help the gravy thicken.

Serve over rice or egg noodles.
