How do you tenderize round steak?

  • use a meat tenderizer to pound the steaks – just give each side a few whacks to break down the tough muscle fiber
  • Marinade the steak for an hour or more – using acidic flavors like vinegar and lemon juice help to break down the proteins in the meat
  • use salt – salt creates a natural brine to meat
  • cook low and slow
  • slice against the grain – to get the most tender cuts of meat for your mouth to chew on, slice pieces that cut the muscle fibers giving your mouth less of a workout



What are some good methods to tenderize steaks?

  • Anything that has acid like vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice or even Coca-Cola can break down proteins in the steak
  • The ideal time to marinade a steak is for about two hours – anything longer than a day can have the reverse effect and toughen the meat
  • Don’t forget salts and spices to help further tenderize and flavor steaks

Delicious slow cooked tender round steak. Perfect over mashed potatoes.

  • Author: Melissa


  • 2 pounds of round steak
  • all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. of butter – unsalted
  • 1 (6 oz.) can of mushroom slices – drained
  • 1/2 tsp. of each salt and pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 packet of dry onion soup mix
  • water


  • If steak is not in individual pieces – cut steak
  • *optional, but a good idea – Use a mallet to pound both sides of the steak – just enough to break up the muscle
  • pour a scant amount of flour on a plate
  • use tongs to coat the steak on both sides with flour
  • melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat
  • brown steak on both sides
  • season with salt and pepper
  • place steak in a 9×13 inch pan
  • add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook them until tender – about 1 minute longer
  • place mushrooms, scrapings and any juice from the pan over the steaks
  • Add water until it is about 1/4 inch deep in the pan
  • place bay leaves in the water
  • shake onion soup mix, salt and pepper over the steaks and into water
  • cover with foil
  • bake at 325 degrees for 1&1/2 hours or until tender


*thick steaks may take about another 30 minutes to become tender
