Slow Roasted Round Steak

The other day I was thinking about a dish my mom used to make with round steak and, of all things, a can of tomato soup! She called the dish "steak with tomato gravy" and she always served it with mashed potatoes and dang it was good. So I was thinking about it and decided to make a version of my own. It's really not all that much like the dish she made, but it did make the house smell heavenly as the round steak roasted in the oven today.

Beef top round
olive oil
3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato soup
6 carrots, peeled and chunked
salt and pepper
some dried italian herbs

preheat oven 350

In oven proof casserole with lid, brown meat in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. When brown, remove and brown the celery and onions a bit, add all the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil--throw the meat back in the casserole and spoon sauce over--place lid on casserole and put in oven for 2 hours. Would go well with rice, buttered noodles, or mashed potatoes.


  1. My mother made something like that, but she called it Smothered Steak.

  2. Round steak was a staple of my childhood:-)

  3. Our mamas were kindred spirits :-)

  4. Yep. We miss them, but we don't dwell on it:-)
