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


  • 2 pounds of round steak
  • all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. of butter – unsalted
  • 1 (6 oz.) can of mushroom slices – drained
  • Approximately 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
  • sprinkle about half of your salt and pepper on the flour and mix in with a fork
  • use tongs to coat the steak on both sides with flour
  • melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat
  • brown steak on both sides
  • place steak in a 9×13 inch pan
  • add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook them until tender – about one 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, plus the rest of your salt, and pepper over the steaks and into the 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

Serving suggestion: serve over mashed potatoes
