Hope Sullivan


2½ lbs. round steak (approx. 1½-inch thick)
¾ cup flour
salt and pepper, to taste
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, chopped
½ green pepper, diced
2 cups canned whole tomatoes (or can substitute 1 Tbsp. tomato paste + 1 can diced tomatoes)
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
[Optional] 1 tsp. oregano
[Optional] 1 tsp. smoked paprika

Cut round steak into individual servings.
Mix flour, salt, and pepper and sprinkle on steak. Pound mixture into the steak with a meat tenderizer hammer.
In a large frying pan, add oil and brown the steaks, about 2 minutes per side, so both sides are golden brown.
Arrange the steaks in a casserole dish.
In the same frying pan, sauté the onion, garlic, celery, and green pepper.
Pour sautéed vegetables over the meat.
Add the tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce (and, if desired, the optional spices).
Cover and bake in the oven at 350º for 1½ to 2 hours, until the steak is tender and falling apart.
