1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon pepper/
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 beef round steak, about 2 pounds and 1 inch thick
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups unsalted beef broth
1 cup light cream

Combine flour and next 5 ingredients. Pound mixture into both sides of the meat with a mallet. Sauté meat in 2 tablespoons of the butter and all of the oil over medium heat until brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Remove meat from skillet to a 2-quart baking dish, cover, and keep warm. In the same skillet, sauté onion and garlic over medium heat until onion is transparent; add to meat. Pour over additional butter if necessary. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in skillet; blend in the 2 tablespoons flour, stirring constantly and scraping bottom and sides of skillet, until the mixture is smooth and brown. Cook until thick, approximately 3 minutes. Stir in broth and cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly; simmer over low heat an additional 5 minutes. Pour over meat and bake, covered, at 325 degrees F. for 2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove cover and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes. Add cream, stir, and serve. (4 servings)
